NEW LP-SURVIVOR SERIES DISC PACK COUPLINGS FROM R+W

In July of this year R+W announced the launch of its new LP-SURVIVOR series disc pack couplings, for torques ranging from 300 to 20,000 Nm. The unique advantage of the LP-SURVIVOR series is that it drives purely by friction, even in the larger sizes. This is beneficial over driving on the cross sections of the discs and the shanks of shoulder bolts, as it increases torsional stiffness, allows for smoother transmission, and more evenly distributes stress for extended life. Standard keyway and set screw designs are available for quick delivery out of Bensenville, IL and custom designs are available on request...
