Public Transportation Gate Applications

Products used: ALS coupling and 111 Model Brake.

The ALS coupling is a cost-effective means of connecting two shafts, with moderate precision and ease of installation. The 111 model Brake is used for holding the gateway in place when moved to the open or closed position.

Models used: ALS shaft coupling + 111 Brake     

Application benefits: The ALS coupling offers easy installation and minimal backlash, while the 111 model brake has a long service life.  This is important in this application, where frequency of operation is high.

Medical Equipment Applications

Products used: SFC and BXW

The SFC is a good choice for precision linear movement on demanding Medical applications. The BXW brake stops a linear actuator from back-driving when power unexpectedly fails. Its compact design also reduces the equipment footprint.

Models used: SFC shaft coupling + BXW Brake     

Application benefits: The SFC coupling performs with zero-backlash, while the BXW model brake stops rotation when power is dis-engaged.

CNC Machine Tool Applications

Products used: SFC and BXW

The PSL shaft lock bushing and SFC precision coupling can be used to precisely control head movement with zero-backlash. Using a BXW provides back-drive stoppage when power fails. Its compact design also reduces the equipment footprint.

Models used: BXW Brake.   

Application benefits: BXW model brake halts rotation, thereby stopping ball screw back-drive.

Pump Applications

Products used: AL

AL couplings are designed with cost vs performance in mind. Pumps usually do not require high precision, but do require a high quality, reliable coupling.

Models used: ALS shaft coupling

Application benefits: The ALS jaw & spider coupling has an elastomer element that mitigates vibration of the motor to the pump.

CNC Lathe Applications

Products used: SFF

SFF couplings are explicitly designed for high speed, Machine Tool applications. With high torque values, and speed ranges in excess of 20,000 RPM, the SFF coupling is well suited for machine spindles.

Models used: SFF-N shaft coupling

Application benefits: The SFF shaft coupling is capable of operating at high RPM, while maintaining zero-backlash on starts and stops. This is provides precision cutting head movement.

Wind Turbine Applications

Products used: BXW

Large BXW brakes are ideal for holding blade pitch on wind turbines.

Models used: BXW brake   

Application benefits: The BXW brake is lightweight, and has a long lifetime with frequent operation.

Robotic Arm Applications

Products used: BXR

During a catastrophic power failure, it is important that robotic arm movement is captured and stopped to prevent mechanical collapse and equipment damage. The BXR is designed with a thin profile, thus saving space on articulating joints. There is also a significant reduction in idling wear due to the lightweight construction.

Models used: BXR brake

Application benefits: The BXR brake is designed with a very low profile, which reduces weight and heat.  This is essential with cantilevered loads on robotic arms.  This BXR is used as a power-off safety brake which stops movement during a catastrophic power failure.
