As a part of a series of technical handbooks developed for the European manufacturing industry, R+W has released a new handbook for the design and application of precision couplings and line shafts. Covering the very basics of what precision couplings and line shafts are and why they are used, all the way though complex theories and advanced sizing formulas used to determine optimum coupling selection, this handbook includes information for all levels of design engineers using precision couplings and line shafts. It is the first of two books that will be written by R+W over the course of a two-year-period. The next handbook, discussing the design application and use of mechanical torque limiters, is scheduled for release in 2008. Contact R+W America for more information.
