When to go special
When we look at custom or specialist shaft couplings, it is important to remember that it does not invariably mean a custom or specialist price; it can sometimes actually mean a cost saving. Shaft couplings by the nature of their placement are ultimately the critical connection between the motor and the driven mechanism;...

Carbon Fibre Compression Tunability
The Carbon Composite Bellows™ Spring (CCBS) is a system of stacked carbon fibre elements, similar in design to a Belleville washer, that combine to work as a high performance, extremely light weight flexible compression spring. Using carbon composites takes advantage of the materials unique high tensile properties in bending.
