Couplings: Designed to Carry the Pay(load)

Couplings. There certainly is no shortage of couplings — or things to couple them with. There also seems to be no lack of applications for them. You say you need to reduce the transmission of shock loads from one shaft to another? That’s a classic application for shaft couplings; but really, couplings are application-intensive. They’re everywhere.

Drive Train Mining Application

Stromag Periflex® tyre couplings accommodate misalignment and minimise maintenance

In many industrial environments the transmission of power through the drive train requires couplings that are able to carry high torque while also accommodating misalignment and vibration. Stromag’s range of Periflex® Shaft Couplings use a highly flexible, rubber-fabric ‘tyre’ element to transmit up to 15,000 Nm of torque, while compensating for radial, axial and angular misalignment. Further, wear is limited to the rubber element to minimise the burden of maintenance.

Case Study: Intelligent Braking System for Corn Transportation on the Mississippi River

The value and importance of the Mississippi River as a shipping network is hard to exaggerate. The river network extends throughout many of the central states and eventually deposits into the Gulf of Mexico, making it a key route for exported goods into central and southern America. With corn export being a key product for the USA’s economy, it’s vital that this transport network operates efficiently.
