Zero-Max provides imaginative solutions for virtually every coupling need. We manufacture over 100 standard models and sizes of Composite Disc (CD) Coupling models, including single flex CD couplings, double-flex CD couplings,  and floating shaft CD couplings, but also recognize that every application is unique. With experience from thousands of different applications, our team can quickly design and build a custom CD Coupling for those situations when a standard solution isn't perfect.

The key to Zero-Max composite disc couplings is the patented disc-pack design that we have perfected over several decades. The result is a
dependable, high-performance product that can be made to your exact specifications. Whether you need greater torque capacity, higher misalignment capacity, a compact design, or large bore diameters, we will produce your custom CD couplings cost-effectively and for any quantity.


CD Coupling Customization Options

In the world of motion control and power transmission, “good enough” is not acceptable. For applications where a standard CD coupling model will not satisfy your requirements, we offer the following customization options:
 
  • Higher Torsional Stiffness
  • Higher Flexibility Disc Packs
  • Higher Torque Capacity
  • Material and Plating
  • Special Bores
  • Custom Hubs
  • Mounting Features
  • High-Speed Operation
  • Phase-Adjustment
  • Integrated Features
  • Larger Sizes
  • Small Space Requirements
  • Longer Floating Shafts
  • Many More Customizations

Design Engineering Assistance
 Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

Zero-Max Engineering is continually involved in custom projects using the latest technology available to solve your coupling needs.  Using Finite Element Analysis (FEA), the disc design can easily be tailored along with changes in the composite material to fit your application requirements. State-of-the-art CAD, machining, test, and analysis systems allow us to design solutions reliably for unique needs. Using these technologies and our decades of coupling and industry expertise, we make design recommendations to help you achieve the best mechanical performance. Present us with your motion control challenges, and we will deliver a solution.


Quality-Driven Design and Production

We are ISO 9001:2015 Certified and have an international reputation for producing durable, high-quality components. Strict quality control processes, paired with in-house design, testing, and production, ensure your custom CD couplings meet your design and performance requirements at the lowest cost and in the shortest lead-time possible. Our after-sale service and support show our dedication to customer service long after you receive your product.


In-House Testing for Quality Control

Our engineers have various types of static and dynamic testing available to ensure your design specifications are met. Using an in-house test lab saves time and ensures our design engineers have all the right information they need. Rest assured, you will receive custom composite disc couplings matching your specifications exactly.

No application is too large, too small, or too difficult for custom composite disc coupling from Zero-Max. Contact us for more information and to start designing your custom composite disc couplings.
