One of our goals at Power Transmission Engineering is to help you understand, identify and select the best technology for your mechanical power transmission or motion control applications. With every project, you have to decide which components to use, and which suppliers, based on functionality, quality and price. We aim to help you make those decisions informed by providing the latest information on current technology, especially when it comes to mechanical components.

9 Precision Bellows Couplings (March 2015)

Bellows couplings first began to be widely used by machine tool builders in the mid-to-late 20th century. With the advent of CNC technology, machine engineers started looking to improve upon some of the negative influences traditional power transmission couplings can have on a precision rotary / linear motion system.

13 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.

39 The American Industrial Renaissance (December 2014)

At SKF, we believe in the longterm development of the U.S. industrial economy. The reindustrialization is supported by a strong university-based research network, a competitive workforce and energy supply from domestic energy resources. However, there are still challenges, particularly regarding the availability of skilled labor. Business, education and governments have a responsibility to work together to ensure this is not the bottleneck in U.S. industrial development. I am particularly pleased with and support the work the National Association of Manufacturers is doing in this area.

40 The Efficient Drive System (December 2013)

It's a fact that drive systems wouldn't function properly or efficiently without couplings. They quietly go about their business of transferring motion from one drive element to the next. In the PT market today, couplings have the unique challenge of satisfying a variety of customer needs including tighter tolerances, higher speeds and a more versatile selection process.
