New rubber mixture for temperature critical tasks
Resistant to high temperatures and significantly cheaper than silicone, CENTALAN HT from Centa is a newly developed synthetic elastomer which eliminates the need to use expensive silicone elements in a wide range of applications. The novel material from the company’s own rubber production is (more...)
Your next big brake...
Controlling loads in the heaviest engineering applications can require brakes capable of generating torque measured in the millions of newton meters. Tony George of Twiflex explains how these giant brake systems are engineered and looks at design considerations. As the quest to improve (more...)

A smooth path to drive coupling selection
David Proud of Reich Drive Systems UK explains how to navigate through what can sometimes be seen as a technical minefield for designers and engineers. Engineers and designers working on power transmission applications can often face a daunting task when it comes to specifying the most appropriate (more...)
Coupling replaced without the need to dismantle the drive
What do you do when one of the most versatile and reliable flexible couplings reaches the end of its working life and you need to fit a replacement, quickly? As part of the CENTAFLEX-A range, the CENTAFLEX-AR from Centa is designed for use on 'O’ type couplings size 25 to 600, enabling (more...)
Servo couplings for high torque applications
KTR has developed a steel lamina coupling for servo drives in the higher power range. The backlash-free and torsionally rigid RADEX-NC High Torque (pictured below) covers speeds up to 27,500rpm while transmitting torques up to 2,000Nm. Main application ranges are machine tools as well as measuring (more...)
KTR adds thruster brakes to industrial product range
KTR has extended its range of industrial brakes products by adding a new line of electro-hydraulic thruster brake systems. The KTR-STOP TB line is available as disk or drum brakes. The spring-actuated thruster brakes are designed for use with lifting devices of Ed 230/50 to Ed 3000/120 and can be (more...)
Electromagnetic clutch saves military vehicle
SG Transmission has designed and manufactured a magnetic clutch for a military vehicle. With a diameter of 118mm, the non-conventional friction clutch has a multi-pole design which gives a comparatively high torque of 35-40Nm for its diameter. SG Transmission was approached when the existing (more...)
Clutch replacement boosts reliability of bucket elevator
When a bucket elevator manufacturer was experiencing reliability problems with its backstop clutches, resulting in intensive maintenance and frequent replacement, it turned to Tsubaki for a solution. Replacing the trapped roller design with a sprag clutch delivered higher torque capacity and longer (more...)
Couplings take the heat in fire pump systems
Fire pump systems must operate in some of the most extreme environmental conditions imaginable. Called into use in emergency situations, where lives or property may be at risk, it is essential that these systems operate at the highest levels of performance and reliability. A key component within (more...)
Flexible couplings for diesel pump drives
The new Centax-K range from Centa is a torsionally-soft coupling designed for diesel-driven compressor, pump or hydraulic drives, features a rubber element that’s vulcanised to a steel adapter plate with several steel and reinforced plastic options on the output side. The coupling can be (more...)
