Power Transmission

Zero-Max ServoClassCouplings feature low thermal transfer.

Zero-Max announced that its ServoClass Couplings minimize heat transfer and reduce variations in system accuracy caused by thermal expansion. The coupling features stainless steel discs designed into the center of the coupling that dissipate heat generated from a connected servo motor. By minimizing heat transmission to the connected shaft, thermal expansion is prevented.

Three new sizes have been added to the Zero-Max ServoClass coupling line. They handle bore diameters from 0.875 in. (20mm) to 1.378 in. (35mm) and operating torque from 3937 to 9843 in. lbs (100 to 250 Nm). Many additional sizes are available starting with the smallest bore size 0.157 in. (4 mm) and larger.

All ServoClass couplings are manufactured of RoHS compliant materials. They are lightweight and are designed with 304 stainless steel disc packs and 7075-T6 aluminum hubs and center members. They are available in single and double flex models in inch and metric sizes. All models and sizes feature clamp style hubs with corrosion resistant socket head cap screws.
