R+W America L.P.

R+W employs a talented team of engineers focused on the development of new products and custom solutions based on customer-specific application requirements.

R+W's engineers work daily with 3D modeling programs, FEA software, and Matlab analysis programs. With the cooperation of universities in Bayreuth and Aachen (Germany), new product developments are analyzed and tested on state of the art test equipment. Several milestones in coupling technology, such as the first two piece, blind-mate bellows coupling and the SL ULTRALIGHT safety coupling originated from this department.

In addition to new product developments, custom solutions such as safety couplings for the International Space Station and blind-mate bellows couplings for the world's largest machine at CERN have been designed in just a few weeks. In addition to customized solutions for demanding applications, R+W's goal is to develop an entirely new series of couplings to present to the world market.
