Couplings enhance high-speed automation.

Press Release Summary:



Safety Couplings provide jam-free accuracy for inserting, stacking, bundling and storage/retrieval operations. They are designed with Belleville spring, and disengage in 2 to 4 ms in jam situations. Torque-limiting couplings incorporate precision roller guides and ensure zero-backlash motion control. They are available in bore sizes from 0.25 to 3.50 in. with torque capacities from 9 to 14,160 in-lb.



Original Press Release:


Rimtec safety couplings enhance high-speed mailroom automation


Automated, high-speed inserting, stacking, bundling and storage/retrieval operations now may safely achieve exceptional, jam-free accuracy by installing Rimtec Corporation's torque-limiting, pre-stressed safety couplings.

Rimtec safety couplings, designed with a Belleville spring, disengage in an exceptional 2 to 4 ms in a jam situation -- before the jam can cause expensive damage to the drive or automation equipment. The coupling can then re-engage at the precisely correct angular position, in just one revolution, to maintain continued mailroom speed and accuracy.

The Rimtec couplings incorporate precision roller guides with a broader contact surface compared to conventional ball guides. This design provides high stiffness, even with today's fast acceleration, and also ensures zero-backlash motion control.

Rimtec torque-limiting safety couplings are available in bore sizes from 0.25 to 3.50 inches (six to 90 mm), with torque capacities from 9 to 14,160 in-lb (1 to 1600 Nm).
