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[…]

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 Read more about Disengagement desired[…]

At a distance

In addition to the WDS, WDE and WD-VA series connection shafts, Jakob offers another standard series and customer-specific solution for bridging large center distances: the EKHZ series based on elastomer couplings of the EKH series. The range of application of the EKHZ series is mainly in applications with medium operating speeds. It covers a torque Read more about At a distance[…]

New Cooperation in the Pump Sector

As a very attractive alternative to the classic peristaltic pump, ROWASOL, in cooperation with the machine builder OPM Mechatronic, Hörstel-Riesenbeck, is presenting the DSL1K piston pump, which was specially developed for coloring plastic parts with liquid color. At the previous K trade fair in Düsseldorf, ROWASOL and OPM had great success presenting three synchronously operated Read more about New Cooperation in the Pump Sector[…]

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[…]

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[…]

Plug and Play for optical data transmission

The joining of glass fibres – the so-called splicing – requires a lot of experience and fine motor skills. And once the fibres are connected they can only be separated again by cutting. Pluggable connections are therefore better suited for the variable connection of terminal devices in industrial plants. For this purpose there are splice Read more about Plug and Play for optical data transmission[…]
