Depending on the application requirements, Abssac can supply Schmidt-Kupplung shaft couplings as high-performance standard items, couplings adapted to a particular sector, or designs tailored to specific applications.
Schmidt-Kupplung shaft couplings are classic products for extreme parallel offsets of up to 275mm; these torsionally stiff, well-balanced shaft couplings compensate for variable parallel shaft offsets without side loads on the driving or driven shaft, all in a very compact envelope. Typical applications for these couplings include woodworking machines, roll forming machines, printing machines, packaging machines and papermaking machines. In fact the design can be utilised in any transmission design where there is high torque, high shaft offset and a small DBSE (distance between shaft ends). The precision coupling transmits torque at a constant angular velocity (homokinetic motion) at all possible offsets and can transmit torque ranges from 35Nm to 6610Nm. It is claimed that no other shaft coupling design can provide a comparable ratio of parallel shaft offset to overall length. Abssac can supply 2D and 3D CAD format drawings for all model types.
Controlflex shaft couplings are suitable for use with shaft encoders, accommodating all types of misalignment with very low restoring forces and low stress on the encoder bearings at constant angular velocity.
Semiflex couplings are torsionally stiff, precise and backlash-free. They also require little axial space, compensate for misalignment without restoring forces and transmit torque between shafts in situations where shaft alignment cannot be guaranteed.
Loewe GK couplings feature high axial stiffness and multiple shaft connections, making them suitable for torque applications requiring resistance to axial motion. The mix of kinematic properties enables this type of shaft coupling to accommodate much radial and angular misalignment.
Omniflex couplings offer high universal shaft misalignment compensation with compact dimensions. This torsionally stiff and robust coupling is purpose-designed for maximum torque requirements and tough cycle operations.
Additional innovative designs will be launched within the next few months, addressing the specific needs of servo-driven applications.
