Miniature & innovative safety brakes
Electromagnetic brakes, couple, release, brake and hold machinery in place using electromagnetic force generated by passing a current through a coil. The products are electromagnetically actuated or spring actuated. The electromagnetic actuated range further divides into several major categories: electromagnetic-actuated brakes...

Machined torsion springs offer performance that wound alternatives simply cannot match.
Machined Torsion Springs from ABSSAC offer a range of advantages to end users. Being machined from a single piece of solid material, they can provide very precise linear deflection rates because they eliminate virtually all residual stresses. In a traditional, wire-wound spring, the spring rate can change over time.

Metal Bellows - Key enabling technology for a wide range of engineering applications
The versatile metal bellows play an essential role in controlling pressure, vacuum and motion, in a broad array of machine components and assemblies across numerous industry sectors. The process begins with a piece of aluminium stock or bar. Next the internal geometry of the electroform is machined into the aluminium to produce a mandrel.

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...

Solid, robust and cost effective solid shaft couplings
The ideal shaft coupling for fast, rigid and easy shaft connection. Ideal for 6mm to 50mm diameter shafts, the Steel or Stainless Steel construction is designed for specifically for arduous use. Holding tight tolerances to the concentricity on the bore, makes the ABSSAC rigid coupling an ideal emergency fix or prototype connection.
