This Mechanical Variator Is Explosion Proof

This Mechanical Variator Is Explosion Proof

Explosion proof variable speed requirements have limited options. Friction drives won't apply and electrical controls need to be remote. The Plaromaster is a unique elastohydrodynamic drive that provides explosion proof speed control at the point its needed. With infinite variability down to zero rpm, full torque can be delivered over the entire speed range...

Ruland Introduces Clamp Style Shaft Collars for Medical Equipment

Ruland Introduces Clamp Style Shaft Collars for Medical Equipment

Ruland clamp style shaft collars are manufactured from select materials with fine finishes, high holding power and a precise face to bore relationship making them ideal for the demands of medical equipment. They are used for guiding, spacing, stopping and component alignment. Medical equipment manufacturers benefit from the tightly controlled face to bore perpendicularity of Ruland shaft collars (TIR of ≤ .002" or .05 mm) which is critical when the collar is used as a load-bearing face or for aligning components such as bearings or gears.
