R+W Adds LPZ Short Spacer Into Disc Coupling Line

Both ends of this spacer connect via a precision machined stainless steel disc pack, which transfers torque through a pure friction-drive design.

In its effort to fill in and complete its flexible disc coupling offering, R+W has added a standard coupling adapter which provides customers with more configuration and connection options when selecting couplings for industrial applications.  

The LPZ spacer accompanies a quickly expanding product line and offers lateral misalignment capabilities in a very small package.  It is available in six sizes ranging from 500 Nm to 12,000 Nm and is able to mate with any LP coupling hub R+W has to offer within the corresponding size.  Both ends of this spacer connect via a precision machined stainless steel disc pack, which transfers torque through a pure friction-drive design.  This ensures that shear force on the fastening bolts is eliminated and the assembly is completely backlash-free.  

While this spacer is made entirely of steel, all R+W coupling components can be made from special materials and balanced for higher speeds if the applications demands it.
