"Use of torsionally rigid metal bellows couplings in Special high-speed test benchs " by JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH

Special high-speed test benches are used to test bearings.

In these tests, the effects of different lubricants on the sliding properties of the bearings in the endurance test are checked. The structural design of such a test rig must meet different requirements. The drive is subject to special conditions. In addition to a lateral force-free storage, the coupling is a not to be underestimated component. Essential features in this case are the absolute torsional rigidity, the good damping properties and, of course, the precise and almost powerless compensation of all offset errors between the shaft ends.

For such applications, torsionally rigid flexible couplings are generally ideal. The thin metal bellows have in addition to the balancing, also vibration-damping properties. The high flexibility of Jakob's KSS couplings with its 2-wave bellows and straight adapter and the easy mounting option of the coupling through the use of cone bushings as a shaft-hub connection guarantee a safe transmission of all forces and torques, even with small shaft diameters and torques without additional feather key. The rotationally symmetric design ensures excellent, dynamic operating behavior, even at very high speeds. The high torsional rigidity and the very low restoring forces with shaft misalignment as well as the low moment of inertia characterize the coupling type. Torques from 25 to 2500 Nm are possible. Highest quality in processing and the materials used make the KSS couplings a reliable and economical component. It is used, in addition to the test stands as a highlighted example, also particularly often in servos and actuators.

The flexible, backlash-free safety coupling of the SKW-KP series is a combination of safety coupling and servo metal bellows coupling attachment for direct drives.
The modern, innovative mechanical engineering aims at decreasing external dimensions and higher performance potential of the building components. More and more compact drive elements with maximum power density are required. But also the safety aspect, such as Collision protection in the event of a machine crash continues to gain importance due to increasing automation and dynamization.
With the SKX-L and SKB safety couplings, JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH offers a safety coupling generation for overload limitation or for collision protection for indirect drives, which meets the most modern requirements.
JAKOB Antriebstechnik offers the metal bellows steel coupling KGH, which is manufactured in the extremely easy-to-assemble split-hub design, also as a stainless steel version (KGH-VA).
The SKW safety coupling ensures reliable overload and collision protection.
