The Schmidt coupling offsets like no other coupling.
When designing new machines the parallel alignment of the shafts is always paramount. However some applications actually require that parallel offset to be dynamic during operation and well above and beyond the capabilities of standard shaft couplings. To achieve the exaggerated parallel ...

The wrong choice of shaft coupling design will effect encoder performance
Too many designers spend time and money on high accuracy position and speed devices, such as rotary encoders, only to compromise their performance by using an inappropriate shaft coupling.
Shaft encoders are accurate instruments, capable of extremely high angular resolution and are ...

Turning customer clamping challenges into innovative and reliable solutions.
When a pressure is exerted anywhere in a confined incompressible fluid it is transmitted equally in all directions throughout the fluid. In fact the pressure ratio (initial difference) remains the same throughout the fluid. This principle is successfully used in the range of ETP products, ...

Sometimes an application can benefit from a little flexibility.
One of the greatest advantages of the Helical flexure beam product is in its ability to adapt into applications where simply others can not follow.
By altering the characteristics of the coiled beam area, torque capacity, angular and parallel misalignment capabilities, (torsional ...
