Higher, faster, further!

"Higher, faster, further!" by JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH

The "Simple-Flex" series from JAKOB Antriebstechnik is a novel, innovative distance coupling that can be manufactured up to 6m in length and requires no additional intermediate support.

An ingenious composite tube with a multi-layer, angle-specific fiber configuration allows for a particularly simple design that works without the otherwise necessary coupling compensation elements on the two tube ends. With elaborate simulation calculations and test series, a composite pipe has been developed which has both flexural flexibility and high torsional rigidity. The very low weight and the associated low moments of inertia can guarantee the highest operating speeds and torques with excellent smoothness, without neglecting the compensation of shaft misalignments.

 "Simple-Flex" is available with either rotationally symmetrical cone clamping ring clamping or with assembly-friendly half-shell hub. The two available composite pipe sizes cover torques up to 1000Nm.

The "Simple-Flex" will be presented for the first time at EMO 2019 at the booth of JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH, Hall 005 - Stand D89.

How to clamp the largest and heaviest workpieces easily
The hydromechanical spring-loaded cylinders of the ZSF series from JAKOB Antriebstechnik offer robust and reliable clamping elements. These spring-loaded systems can be used wherever displaceable or movable machine parts must be temporarily clamped or locked.
Elastomer couplings are pluggable, backlash-free and flexible shaft couplings. The connection and compensation element consists of a plastic spider with involute teeth and a high Shore hardness. This elastic coupling spider is electrically insulating and has good oscillating damping behavior. It is inserted form-fitting and slightly preloaded into two claw-shaped hubs with high precision.

About JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH

JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH is an internationally leading manufacturer of servo couplings, safety couplings, and mechanical clamping elements. For more than 40 years JAKOB has been developing and producing various types of torsionally stiff metal bellows couplings and safety couplings for the servo drive industry. Throughout our history we have earned ourselves a reputation of being a reliable and competent partner in the motion and drive industry.

JAKOB is the market leader in the area of mechanical tool and component clamping with its innovative and unique clamping technology.

The JAKOB wedge clamping technology provides the highest clamping forces with low actuation torques and, at the same time, maximum operational safety. The goal of our servo and safety coupling catalog is to provide a general overview over our standard product range. Highly trained engineers and technicians at our facility in Kleinwallstadt are always ready with a solution to best meet your requirements.
