Couplings designed for high voltage applications
To meet the specific motion control needs of high voltage systems Huco Dynatork is exporting its expertise to Japan. Its customer specialises in the design and manufacture of high voltage capacitors, one application for which is in an electronic assembly for plasma screens. A miniature misalignment coupling is also part of this assembly but standard materials of manufacture are unsuitable for this high voltage application.
The answer was to machine the required couplings in a non-standard, high dielectric constant material to prevent voltage leakage across the drive. Victrex PEEK proved ideal for the job, being characterised by excellent mechanical properties maintained to high temperatures. Trials of the special couplings proved successful and resulted in a substantial ongoing order for a range of the Huco Dynatork MultiBeam couplings made from the material.
