LOW COST AND EX STOCK SOLID COUPLINGS

Abssac is now stocking solid compression-type Steel couplings. Offering sizes to accomodate 6mm to 50mm bore sizes, the rigid coupling, as it is sometimes termed, has no flexibility but can effectively be used to connect two shafts to make a permanent joint. The solid coupling is ...

ETP helps connect power transmission

When it comes to quick, accurate and reliable shaft to hub connection the ETP product is a winner. All ETP products consist of a double-walled hardened steel (in some cases stainless steel) sleeve, which is filled with a pressure medium. Housed in the product flange there are one ...

Controlflex the ideal encoder connection

A rotary encoder, also called a shaft encoder, is an electro-mechanical device that converts the angular position or motion of a shaft or axle to an analog or digital code. There are two main types: absolute and incremental. Since they do not transmit torque, the connecting shaft ...

Shaft coupling saves fish

The Challenge was to develop a flexible shaft coupling that could be used in the drive assembly of a “Aerator” used in the oxygenation of water in fish spawning ponds and small lakes. Aeration is especially required in times of hot weather where the oxygen concentration within the water can fall and have a detrimental effect on spawning....

Flexible Rotary Solutions

Specifying the right flexible shaft coupling for an application can be a technical challenge for the engineer, particularly as there are also so many designs on the market.  Shaft size, torque capability, angular and parallel shaft misalignment, not to mention material and attachment, all add to the myriad of parameters that narrow down choice....
