New Shaft Couplings for Stepper Motors

Shaft couplings are actually the mechanical device that connects or couples the two drive element or shaft together for transmitting the power from one end to another. Couplings do not allow any shaft interruption during operation. Anyway, with the torque limiting couplings can disconnect when the limit of the torque is exceeded.

STEPPERONLINE provides rigid shaft couplings and flexible shaft couplings.

Advantages of Shaft Coupling

• Transfer the power from one end to another end
• Provide connectivity of shaft with the other units that are manufactured such as motor and generators
• Provide shaft misalignment and mechanical flexibility
• Decreases the shock load transmission from shaft one end to another
• Provide protection against overload
• Adjust the rotating unit vibration characteristics
• Connect the driving part
There is the number of applications based on coupling in automobiles such as drive shaft connecting the engine, and the rear axle is just the universal joint. And based on the area of application, there are various types of couplings. These shaft couplers are divided into following categories:

Types of Shaft Couplings

• Rigid Couplings
• Flexible or compensating couplings
• Clutches couplings

Schmalz Technology Development - Vacuum Generation without Compressed Air - Flexible and Intelligent

• Vacuum generation that's 100% electrical; • Integrated intelligence for energy and process control; • Extensive communication options through IO-Link interface; Schmalz already offers a large range of solutions that can optimize handling process from single components such as vacuum generators to complete gripping systems. Particularly when used in autonomous warehouse, conventional vacuum generation with compressed air reaches its limits. Compressed air often is unavailable in warehouses. Schmalz therefore is introducing a new technology development: a gripper with vacuum generation that does not use compressed air. The vacuum is generated 100% electrically. This makes the gripper both energy efficient and mobile. At the same time, warehouses need systems with integrated intelligence to deliver information and learn. This enables the use of mobile and self-sufficient robots, which pick production order at various locations in the warehouse. Furthermore, Schmalz provides various modular connection options from its wide range of end effectors in order to handle different products reliably and safely.
