Shock Absorbing Coupling Solutions for High Acceleration/Deceleration Applications

Marlborough, Massachusetts, February 2008. Ruland offers shock-absorbing jaw couplings for high acceleration/deceleration applications. High acceleration/deceleration applications create shock loads to system components. If not absorbed, the shock can result in excessive vibration and increased settling time, with a resulting loss in machine efficiency. In some more extreme cases, undampened...
