Zero-Max “Schmidt” offset couplings feature zero maintenance bearings.
Zero-Max announced that its “Schmidt” offset couplings now feature needle bearings with internal micro-poly lubrication that do not require periodic maintenance. The couplings are designed to handle parallel offsets up to 17 inches and are available with torque capacities up to 459,000 in-lbs. They impose no side loads on shafts or bearings and eliminate radial shaft vibrations.
