New Product: Precision couplings

The CD couplings, with zero-backlash precision and high-torsional stiffness, are designed with clampstyle hubs for increased torque capacity on shafts without using keyways.

The couplings handle speeds to 17,000 rpm with torque ratings to 10,666 Nm (94,400 lb-in.). A large size range is available. Users can choose combinations of inch and metric hub bore sizes to meet specific needs. The CD couplings are for use in packaging machines, pick-and-place systems, printing machinery, machine tools, and systems that use servomotors.
