Zero-Max Wind Turbine Couplings are now available as an upgrade replacement for existing wind turbines and for OEM applications. These couplings easily handle torque spikes and high misalignment installations. They have composite disk packs at both ends of a center spacer for strength and generous flexibility. The composite disk packs (flex elements) allow a surplus […]

Ruland manufactures a variety of components including oldham couplings and beam couplings. While both coupling types are backlash-free and feature misalignment capabilities, small performance differences make the choice of coupling critical depending on application parameters.
Making use of the existing BKC line of compact bellows couplings, the SL2 safety coupling is a compact, flexible and torsionally rigid option with integral torque overload release. Designed for aggressive servo driven applications, it is completely backlash free, relying on preloads and frictional connections, along with a hydroformed stainless steel bellows to relieve bearing […]
