The chief advantage of direct drive products is the ability to attach a load directly to the servo motor, allowing a full range of motion control without the need for a shaft coupling or gearhead.
Power transmission component manufacturer KTR says it has developed a new backlash-free, vibration-reducing shaft coupling for drives with severely high speeds.
The combination of a large diameter shaft with wide spacing between the bearings, and a flexible shaft coupling, prevents vibration even at high speeds under heavy imbalanced loads, according to the manufacturer.
Using a ROBA-topstop brake system with a hollow shaft and an integrated, insertable shaft coupling eliminates the need for separate compensation coupling and coupling housing.
This apparatus consists of two direct-current engines, whose shafts are connected together by a fixed shaft coupling. A shaft coupling rotation speed is an output value of this laboratory model and it is possible to measure it either by a tachometer generator or an incremental position sensor.
Wide spacing between bearings, a large diameter shaft, and a flexible shaft coupling combine to prevent vibration, even at high speeds under heavy, imbalanced loads.
Shaft coupling are used in machinery for a several purposes, the most of common which are listed as follow [4]:-
Wide spacing between the bearings, a large diameter shaft and a flexible shaft coupling are said to combine to prevent vibration, even at high speeds under heavy, imbalanced loads.
