Precision couplings from R+W are used in many areas of marine technology. The huge super post-Panamax ships of today, for example, achieve a breathtaking propulsion power of up to 110,000 hp and boast propeller diameters of 10 meters. With its coupling solutions, R+W is an industry partner for this high-performance technology of the future.
Numerous manufacturers in the field of shipbuilding and marine technology rely on light weight, resilient and completely maintenance free R+W torque limiting couplings for efficiency and perfect power transmission to their azimuth thrusters. Sophisticated drive shafts also span long distances inside the hull, ensuring power transmission without losses, and while compensating easily for shaft misalignment.
