Distance Coupling (EKZ)

Distance Coupling (EKZ) by JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH

This category is comprised of several coupling series which can cover axial distances of up to 6 m of length. The common main feature of all types is an intermediate part, which is variable in length and can precisely fit the required specifications of the customer. In many cases, they can be used as connecting shaft (synchronizing shaft) and can substitute for conventional constructions of conncecting shafts with complicated additional intermediate bearings.

Misalignments, especially parallel misalignments, can be compensated to a higher extent. Furthermore, the stainless material and the easy assembly of all series are valuable assets. A secure, frictional connection with easy operation is assured because of the design in split-hub version (series WDS, WDE) or with sliding hub (series EKZ).

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.
