Bellows couplings for high speed applications

Bellows couplings for high speed applications Ruland Manufacturing offers bellows couplings that combine stainless steel bellows and aluminum hubs for highly accurate performance in motion control applications. The properties of stainless steel bellows make them ideal for transmitting torque with a high level of torsional stiffness. The thin walls of the bellows allow the coupling to flex easily, yet remain rigid under torsional loads. Parallel misalignment, angular misalignment and axial motion are accommodated by bellows. The combination of aluminum hubs with the bellows results in an extremely lightweight, low inertia coupling. Since the couplings have no moving parts, zero backlash and a long, maintenance free life are assured. An important feature of the couplings is a balanced design to reduce vibration in high rpm applications. Applications include encoders, where the high accuracy of these couplings ensures optimal performance, and servomotors, where the torque capabilities as well as the accuracy of these couplings are required.
