7 Couplings: Designed to Carry the Pay(load) (August 2018)

Couplings. There certainly is no shortage of couplings - or things to couple them with. There also seems to be no lack of applications for them. You say you need to reduce the transmission of shock loads from one shaft to another? That's a classic application for shaft couplings; but really, couplings are application-intensive. They're everywhere.

9 Smart Couplings Remove Guesswork from Measurements in Machinery Applications (March 2020)

Quite often, the collection of precise data in drive technology applications can be problematic. Data monitoring in a rotating drivetrain is difficult because a direct networking cable connection is often not an available option. Nothing sends shivers down the spine of for example, a production line manager or a system integrator like uncertainty. That's why achieving precise measurement of things like torque and other parameters in machinery applications is, while daunting, a dearly desired goal, especially if those measurements are only available at the drive and motor.

Downtime, downtime, downtime. When it's planned, it's bearable. When it's not, it's not. To maintain machinery, planned downtime is necessary. To fix broken equipment, unplanned downtime is excruciating, especially when your factory is running closer and closer to full capacity.
