"At a distance" by JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH

In addition to the WDS, WDE and WD-VA series connection shafts, Jakob offers another standard series and customer-specific solution for bridging large center distances: the EKHZ series based on elastomer couplings of the EKH series.

The range of application of the EKHZ series is mainly in applications with medium operating speeds. It covers a torque range from 20 to 1600 Nm and allows maximum speeds of 3500 rpm at the minimum length of 50 cm. It is suitable for shaft diameters from 10 to 100 mm. Generally, the achievable maximum length of the EKHZ series is three meters. The EKHZ series makes it possible to reduce vibrations efficiently. The degree of vibration damping can be adjusted by the Shore hardness of the compensation elements. The plastic stars used have two advantages: even without the half-shell design, the couplings can be easily installed because they are pluggable. In addition, the plastic acts thermally and electrically insulating. Due to the properties of the material used, these couplings can only be used up to 90 ° C, whereby the permissible transmission torque is reduced with increasing temperature.

The long-proven metal bellows couplings of the 'KG' and 'MKG' series from JAKOB Antriebstechnik have burnished hubs, which offer improved rust protection and greater resistance to environmental influences.
To protect machine tools, safety couplings have been indispensable for many decades in many applications in drive technology. As collision protection, they protect machines and users from damage, downtime and thus also expenses.
The SKW safety coupling ensures reliable overload and collision protection.
The coupling series KP with 4-corrugated bellows and two radial clamping hubs, is a version with shorter overall length in the JAKOB metal bellows coupling range.
Modern, innovative mechanical engineering is characterized by decreasing external dimensions with constant or increasing overall performance. This development is not at least prescribed by the drive technology and here the required fasteners should not be underestimated.

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.
