Plymouth, Minnesota: Zero maintenance bearings are now available as an option for Schmidt Offset couplings from Zero-Max. This new coupling feature eliminates the need for periodic coupling lubrication and the resulting system downtime.
Schmidt Offset couplings provide the utmost in precision for parallel offset shafts. They transmit constant angular velocity and torque in a wide range of parallel shaft misalignments.
With a time-proven design, they are used in a wide range of machine applications such as printing, embossing, paper converting, pharmaceutical, and automated assembly systems.
The new Schmidt sealed bearing coupling feature incorporates needle bearings with internal micro-poly lubrication. There are no lube fittings making for a cleaner coupling setup.

Compact in design, Schmidt Offset couplings with the new zero maintenance bearing option keep out contaminants and foreign matter, enabling the couplings to be used in less than ideal operating environments.
Schmidt Offset couplings are designed to handle high amounts of parallel offset up to 17 inches and are available with torque capacities up to 459,000 in-lbs. They impose no side loads on shafts or bearings and eliminate radial shaft vibrations.
"More and more system designers are specifying the zero maintenance bearing feature for their Schmidt Offset couplings," reports Robert Mainz, Zero-Max sales manager.
