Ball-detent safety element couplings are used to protect industrial power transmission drivelines from damage due to torque overload. They provide a rapid safety disconnect in the event of a machine jam or crash, along with a simple mechanical reset, preventing costly downtime and repairs.
Enhance your fundamental understanding of disc coupling technology through our new whitepaper, outlining how they are constructed, why they are ideal for certain applications, and how they are configured. These designs have been refined for decades for the ultimate in zero maintenance power transmission. Learn how they can work for you!
Precision line shaft couplings are well known for providing smooth stable running over longer distances between shaft ends. Cut to length with fully split clamping hubs for easy drop-in lateral installation, and with reduced hardware requirements, their simplicity can be hard to resist.
Preventing unplanned downtime in industrial processes only gets more important during times of high demand. The cost of gearbox, motor and drive shaft replacement often pales in comparison to that of the lost production resulting from mechanical torque overload failures caused by jams, collisions and binding in the driveline. This makes mechanical circuit breaking technology more important than ever since a fast, tool free reset and recovery from torque overload minimizes interruption.
