Abssac says that allowing customers to develop one-piece, multi-functional components around a helical beam shaft coupling opens up a plethora of opportunities for design engineers. Such customised components can enhance the overall efficiency of an application, as well as delivering improved product performance and reliability, as well as reducing costs. With Abssac's Heli-Cal beam coupling product, customers can take their standard coupling designs to the next level by incorporating additional features into the original shaft coupling design.
In many cases the final coupling-based component is an amalgamation of separate parts that include items such as external gears, splines, threads and tangs. However, most importantly, it enables design engineers to achieve far greater usage from one item in the total machine, which inevitably leads to improved efficiency. How the standard shaft coupling is enhanced is really up to the designer.
Abssac is so confident with the success rate of its customised products that it often offers a free sample for the customer to test and evaluate.
Stacey Taylor at Abssac says: "When you consider the Heli-Cal beam coupling's capability as a shaft coupling and then add the ability to integrate the design engineer's own end attachment ideas, you have a formidable product combination that other coupling manufacturers cannot supply."
