It has proven itself among others in presses, stamping, machine tools as well as in fixture construction and equipment design. There are 4 standardized series of different sizes and graduated thread diameters available, as well as a special series Read more about A strong piece[…]

Use of torsionally rigid metal bellows couplings in Special high-speed test benchs

Special high-speed test benches are used to test bearings. In these tests, the effects of different lubricants on the sliding properties of the bearings in the endurance test are checked. The structural design of such a test rig must meet different requirements. The drive is subject to special conditions. In addition to a lateral force-free Read more about Use of torsionally rigid metal bellows couplings in Special high-speed test benchs[…]

Suitable for high speed!

The "Simple-Flex" series from JAKOB Antriebstechnik is a novel, innovative distance coupling that can be manufactured up to 6m in length and requires no additional intermediate storage. A sophisticated composite tube with a multi-layer, angle-specific fiber configuration allows a particularly simple design. As a result, the otherwise necessary clutch compensation elements, as well as the Read more about Suitable for high speed![…]

ZSF – Fully clamped

The hydromechanical spring-loaded cylinders of the ZSF series from JAKOB Antriebstechnik offer robust and reliable clamping elements. These spring-loaded systems can be used wherever displaceable or movable machine parts must be temporarily clamped or locked. Other applications can be found in jig construction and for workpiece or tool clamping. The spring-loaded systems interact mechanically-hydraulically. The Read more about ZSF – Fully clamped[…]

Even more resistant

The long-proven metal bellows couplings of the ‘KG’ and ‘MKG’ series from JAKOB Antriebstechnik have burnished hubs, which offer improved rust protection and greater resistance to environmental influences. This type of surface refinement is not an overlying layer such as nickel plating, chrome plating or painting, but a chemical reaction with the material. The substrate Read more about Even more resistant[…]

Think laterally – clamp laterally

With the MDR series, JAKOB Antriebstechnik presents a new universally applicable power clamping nut with a laterally arranged operating hexagon. The MDR series supplements the two types of clamping nut MCA and MDA, which have proven themselves over many years in a wide range of applications. The main design feature of the MDR clamping nut Read more about Think laterally – clamp laterally[…]

Disengagement desired

To protect machine tools, safety couplings have been indispensable for many decades in many applications in drive technology. As collision protection, they protect machines and users from damage, downtime and thus also expenses.The SKB-KS series for direct drives is backlash-free and thanks to the metal bellows construction flexible to compensate for misalignments. The bellows-side conical Read more about Disengagement desired[…]

Plug-in shaft coupling for high-speed applications

In order to meet the ever increasing demands for higher performance, JAKOB Antriebstechnik offers the metal bellows coupling KPP. Its rated torque is above 600 Nm and the maximum torque at approx. 1200 Nm. It has to withstand operating speeds of up to 10,000 rpm and thus extremely high dynamic loads. The connection of the Read more about Plug-in shaft coupling for high-speed applications[…]

Servo couplings for bridging larger distances without an intermediate bearing support

As well as servo bellow couplings as standard and miniature couplings and couplings for fitting in tight spaces or with high torques, JAKOB also manufactures servo couplings for long wheelbases of up to 6 m. These distance couplings, also referred to as prop shafts or intermediate axes, are used to bridge large shaft distances without Read more about Servo couplings for bridging larger distances without an intermediate bearing support[…]

Short and good

The coupling series KP with 4-corrugated bellows and two radial clamping hubs, is a version with shorter overall length in the JAKOB metal bellows coupling range. This makes it particularly suitable for applications with minimal shaft spacing and limited installation conditions. In addition, the very high torsional rigidity values ​​and the easy-to-install clamping hub design Read more about Short and good[…]
