The New Zero-Max ServoClass® Brochure Features New Coupling Sizes And Clamp Style Hubs – Also Has Hysteresis Analysis To Help in Coupling Selection

Jan 31, 2013

Plymouth, Minnesota: Zero-Max’s new brochure featuring their ServoClass® couplings introduces new Single and Double Disc coupling sizes, giving designers even more options when planning their systems. The expanded ServoClass coupling product line also features improved clamp style hubs for handling larger shafts and higher torque. The new brochure makes selecting the right coupling easier because today’s servomotor applications are more demanding than ever.

ServoClass high performance couplings are designed to meet precision positioning requirements and high reverse-load characteristics of today’s servomotor applications. This new brochure illustrates how the coupling’s low inertia design enhances motor performance, making higher system acceleration possible.

This brochure explains the oscillation phenomena of servomotors and shows how to evaluate resonant frequency of a ball-screw system, which is an important consideration in the selection process of couplings.  A simple and helpful illustration and mathematical equation shows how the correct coupling can be selected to eliminate oscillation problems.

All twelve sizes of ServoClass couplings are lightweight and designed with 304 stainless steel disc packs and aluminum hubs and center members. All coupling materials are RoHS compliant. ServoClass couplings feature clamp style hubs with ISO 4762 CL12.9 corrosion resistant socket head caps screws on all models and sizes.  Operating speeds of up to 10,000 rpm, 12 sizes in single and double disc models can handle torque ratings ranging from 0.5 to 250 Nm.
