Press Release Summary:
SERVOMAX TX1 molded thermoplastic insert couplings are suited for pump drive and servo applications. Couplings feature elastomer element press fit between 2 precision molded coupling halves, giving it zero backlash. Sizes are available with bore diameters from .375-1.75 in., with torque capacities from 17.7-5,841 lb-in., and in various shore values to meet application needs.
Original Press Release:
Thermoplastic Servo Coupling
Unifying the goals of enhancing technical performance and durability with cost savings, R+W has developed the SERVOMAX TX1 series of molded thermoplastic insert couplings. The most significant technical advantages are a dramatically reduced mass and moment of inertia, accompanied by a high level of chemical compatibility and tolerance for heat, making the TX couplings ideal for both pump drive and servo applications. These plastics also provide tremendous cost reduction compared to metals, as the result of decreased production times and relatively low material cost.
R+W TX couplings have an elastomer element that is press fit between two precision molded coupling halves giving it zero backlash and guaranteed concentricity. The elastomer insert is available in several shore values allowing the customer to choose how great of a damping effect is required for the application. The TX1 series coupling is designed for a pure keyway connection and is bored to customer specifications. Shaft mounting is achieved via a keyway and a set screw.
Sizes are available for torque capacities ranging from 2Nm (17.7 lbs/in) to 660Nm (5841 lbs/in) and bore diameters from 8 to 45mm and .375 to 1.75 inch.
