NEW PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT: MINIATURE VIBRATION DAMPING DRIVE SHAFT
The precision coupling specialists at R+W have expanded upon their proven designs of vibration damping drive shafts, series EZ2, with a new miniature design, size 5. Depending on which elastomer insert is used, these shaft couplings can transmit peak torques of up to 24Nm, within a major outside diameter of only 25mm.
Available with elastomer Shore hardness values of 98A or 64D, they can compensate for axial, lateral, and angular misalignment, in addition to absorbing vibration and torque spikes, while transmitting motion precisely with zero backlash. The fully split clamping hubs facilitate easy lateral mounting between installed components. Customer specified bore diameters (inch or metric) and overall coupling length can range from 5 to 12,7 mm and up to 3 meters, respectively.
In addition to this new smaller size there are also new larger sizes, expanding the R+W range of vibration damping drive shafts to include torque capacities up to 25,000 Nm, bore diameters up to 140 mm, and overall lengths up to 4 meters.
