Orbit Drive Technology has expanded its product range with the range of axially fixed joint couplings. These combine the properties of cross slide couplings and shaft joints. In addition to the compensation of angular misalignments up to 7 °, the axially stiff couplings offer radial compensation options up to 0,5 mm. The coupling hubs are either clamping hubs or made of aluminum and additionally anodized.
The girder-like center element is made of stainless steel. The mating of the nickel-plated pins and plain bearings ensures minimal restoring forces and is adjusted to minimize rotational play. The couplings are available in an outside diameter range from 12,7 to 40 mm and offer, depending on the size, a rated torque transmission up to 5 Nm. The program of these axially fixed joint couplings offers a variety of bore diameters from 3 to 15 mm.
