The combination of aluminum hubs with the bellows results in an extremely lightweight, low inertia coupling; customized size available upon request
The bellows are made of stainless steel, which makes them ideal for transmitting torque
Zero backlash and a long, maintenance-free life are assured since the bellows coupling has no moving parts
The bellows coupling is a balanced design to reduce vibration in high rpm applications of up to 10,000 rpm
Due to the bellows' thin walls, the coupling is able to flex easily while remaining rigid under torsional loads
Technical specifications: Material: Aluminum alloy hubs and stainless steel bellow Product Type: Set Screw style bellows coupling Dimensions: large bore: 6mm(15/64 inch), small bore: 6mm, outer diameter: 22mm(55/64 inch), overall length: 32mm(1-17/64 inches) Cap Screw: M3-4 Nuber of Screws: 4 ea Angular Misalignment: ≤ 2° Parallel Misalignment: +0.1mm/-0.1mm Axial Motion: +0.6mm/-1.8mm Rated Torque: 1.5Nm Maximum Torque: 3.0Nm Maximun Rotatonal Speed: 18000RPM Application: Bellows couplings are especially suited for high-end servo, stepper, encoder and positioning applications.
Notes Note 1: Performance ratings are for guidance only. The user must determine suitability for a particular application. Note 2: Torque ratings for the couplings are based on the physical limitations/failure point of the metal bellows. Under normal/typical conditions the hubs are capable of holding up to the rated torque of the metal bellows. In some cases, especially when the smallest standard bores are used or where shafts are undersized, slippage on the shaft is possible below the rated torque of the metal bellows.
