Ruland Manufacturings Couplings Resistant to Wind-Up
Couplings feature six beams as configured by two sets of three spiral cuts. Compared to typical beam couplings that have fewer spiral cuts, the beams are shorter and have a steeper helix angle to make the F-series coupling more resistant to wind-up and have a higher torque capacity.
According to the companys press release, this makes the couplings suitable for light-duty power transmission applications such as coupling a servo motor to a lead screw in a motion control system.
Ruland manufactures the torsionally rigid F-series couplings in five different body sizes with outside diameters ranging from 5/8" (15.9 mm) to 1 1/2" (38.1 mm). Available bores range from 3/16" (5 mm)to 3/4" (19 mm). Both set screw style and clamp-style hubs are offered. The F-series range is manufactured in both aluminum and stainless steel. In addition to added corrosion resistance, the stainless steel couplings have even higher torsional rigidity than aluminum versions.
