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.

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...

Two function clamping in one !
An excellent example of our specialist capability is displayed in the development of the axial tensioner ETP-UNIGRIP which was developed to be used within a packaging machine. The application was to secure circular cutting knives which where originally held in place with spacers and multi-bolt mechanical shaft clamping devices.

Quick Mounting and Accurate Hub Connections
The scientist Blaise Pascal formulated the principle of pressure propagation in liquids many years ago: Pascal's law or the principle of transmission of fluid-pressure states that , ”pressure exerted anywhere in a confined incompressible fluid is transmitted equally in all directions throughout the fluid such that the pressure ratio (...

ETP Hub Shaft connections improves productivity in rotary PET bottle stretch blow moulding machine
The ETP shaft connection solution is designed to allow the user to tighten or loose a single cap screw to allow the quick and easy mounting and dismantling and if necessary incremental repositioning of the hub on a shaft. An excellent example of this products placement is in the production of PET bottles.
