PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT: MINIATURE BELLOWS COUPLINGS FOR PRECISE TRANSMISSION OF ANGULAR MOTION AND TORQUE
R+W MK series miniature bellows couplings provide backlash free synchronous torque transmission while absorbing misalignment loads between coupled equipment. The continuous symmetry of the formed stainless steel bellows provides for highly accurate output rotation, even when slightly misaligned. The precision manufacturing process of mounting both hubs onto a common assembly mandrel, and bonding the bellows between them, guarantees concentricity between the hub bores, while ensuring no bending or crimping stress is placed on the bellows. The result is very smooth running and accurate transmission and measurement results, even at very high speeds.
MK series couplings are available in 8 body sizes corresponding to torque ratings ranging from 0.05 to 10 Nm, and bore diameters (inch or metric) from 1 to 28mm. Special versions can be made balanced to run at speeds of up to 200,000 rpm. Various hub mounting options are available including custom versions.
