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[…]

Reliable and cost-effective

The SKW safety coupling ensures reliable overload and collision protection. It comes with a low-cost keyway connection and an integrated deep groove ball bearing for high bearing forces. Made of tempered steel, it can be used in temperature ranges from -30 ° C to + 200 ° C. The release torque is adjustable from 2 Read more about Reliable and cost-effective[…]

Lasting safety for food production protection

In the food industry, metal detectors are used for quality assurance and to protect against contamination. However, achieving the most accurate detection results requires more than simply using the best technology. Optimal handling and calibration of your metal detection system are of equal importance. In the White Paper “Lasting safety for food production protection“, Sesotec provides five useful tips handling and calibrating metal detectors to ensure their best possible performance and thus guarantee product purity. The White Paper describes the following five Read more about Lasting safety for food production protection[…]

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[…]
