Ruland MBCK33-14-8-A is a clamp bellows coupling with 14mm x 8mm bores, 33.3mm OD, 42.9mm length, and 5mm x 2mm keyways. It is zero-backlash and has a balanced design for reduced vibration at high speeds. MBCK33-14-8-A is comprised of two anodized aluminum hubs and a stainless steel bellows. The bellows are able to flex while remaining rigid under torsional loads allowing for all types of misalignment to be accommodated.
This bellows coupling is lightweight and has low inertia making it suitable for applications with speeds up to 10,000 RPM. Hardware is metric and tests beyond DIN 912 12.9 standards for maximum torque capabilities. Ruland MBCK33-14-8-A has four convolutions allowing for high torsional rigidity and making it an excellent fit for precise positioning stepper servo applications as well as encoders. It is machined from solid bar stock that is sourced exclusively from North American mills and RoHS3 and REACH compliant. MBCK33-14-8-A is carefully manufactured in our Marlborough, MA factory under strict controls using proprietary processes.
