The SERVOMAX line of precision elastomer insert couplings from R+W has been expanded to include both smaller and larger sizes as well as enhanced mounting options. The R+W SERVOMAX utilizes secondary heat treatment of the injection molded polyurethane insert to smooth out inconsistencies in the driving surfaces, allowing for a smooth fit and higher repeatability.
The couplings compensate for all types of shaft misalignment while damping vibration and maintaining a backlash free performance. Three different Shore hardnesses allow the designer to select the correct amount of flexibility, vibration damping or stiffness depending on their performance requirements. Their high torque density and reasonable cost makes them ideal for aggressive applications within a small space.
The newly redesigned SERVOMAX EK range now includes 9 sizes and accepts English or metric shafts ranging from 3 ‚â€“ 80 mm (0.118 ‚â€“ 3.150 in.). Torques range from 0.5 ‚â€“ 2150 Nm (4.43 ‚â€“ 19,027 in-lbs). Available in aluminum, steel, stainless steel or engineered polymer, new mounting styles include a wear resistant mechanical torque limiter, fully split clamping collars, adjustable length drive shafts and more.
