Printing application couplings
09 June 2015
Ruland manufactures zero-backlash oldham couplings that accommodate high amounts of parallel misalignment with low bearing loads and have a balanced design for reduced vibration at higher speeds.
Print equipment manufacturers benefit from the combination of flexibility and accuracy of motion. The three-piece design allows for in place servicing without machine disassembly, a useful feature for removing or changing out rollers.
Oldham couplings are highly customisable and can easily combine clamp and set screw hubs with inch, metric, keyed, and un-keyed bores. Hubs are standard in black anodised aluminum for improved lubricity, increased life, and low inertia.
