Coupling enables precision material handling

04 February 2008

A fully automatic conveyor belt system consisting of transport, acceleration and deceleration belts ensures reliable transport, interim storage and distribution of the packaged freight. In this application, a compact shaft coupling design with a high torsional stiffness was essential due to the compact dimensions in the belt conveyor drives and the precision of the whole system. A backlash-free shaft connection and an easy installation of the coupling were additional requirements.

The coupling chosen, the Semiflex Compact Plus C 230 from Schmidt-Kupplung provides a combination of high torsional stiffness, a very short design and a high radial misalignment capacity up to 1,6 mm to compensate the amount of shaft displacements between drive motor and belt rollers. The coupling has a nominal torque capacity of 230 Nm to meet the high torque values which occur at the transitions between the transport belt and the acceleration and deceleration belts. With clamp-hubs, the all-metal coupling provides a press-fit hub version and is easy to mount due to radial clamping screws.
