In this webinar, Design World editors Lisa Eitel and Mike Santora will distill the basics of misalignment … and share the latest advances in industry for addressing motion-axis misalignment with couplings.
Attendees will get a condensed explanation of key motion-control applications for which addressing misalignment is most critical — such as those involving the precise positioning of loads.
Then the editors will explain the interrelatedness of angular misalignment, parallel misalignment, and axial misalignment along with the ways in which several coupling designs compare for addressing these misalignments … including:
- Curved jaw couplings
- Beam (slit) and bellows couplings
- Disc couplings
This webinar will conclude with an explanation of backlash in such couplings … and some examples of what’s new in industry to boost the performance of couplings for motion-control axes and the machines in which they’re applied.
