Company Profile: A prime source of drive-line components
01 December 2008
Huco Dynatork - it specialises in small misalignment couplings, doesn't it? Indeed it does but this is no longer the limit of its expertise. Whilst it's certainly true that the design and manufacture of couplings remain the cornerstone of the Huco Dynatork business this is now just one of the company's five main product groups
Huco was the first manufacturer to adapt the properties of engineering plastics in combination with metals to create a range of innovative misalignment couplings. Since then its products and processes have been continually developed. Now the company is recognised as a world leader in this specialist field with an enviable record of application engineering success.
Whether the need is to compensate for intentional misalignment in light duty and manual drives or high precision control in sophisticated positioning systems, Huco Dynatork has the coupling solution. Its mechanisms include the Oldham and Uni-Lat sliding disc couplings - both Huco Dynatork original concepts. Another Huco Dynatork innovation is the Step Beam with stepped radial slots combining the high torsional stiffness of a straight beam coupling with the lateral flexibility of its helical counterpart. The breadth of coupling choice from Huco Dynatork is unmatched in the industry.
These products are in high demand as they are the only air motors that can be used for precise motion control. They are exceptionally energy efficient and, thanks to continuous development, are now suitable for use in any operating environment, particularly those that are hazardous or sensitive.
The floating piston design of the Huco Dynatork air motor transmits the maximum torque on start-up which can be adjusted to fine limits by standard air-flow valves. Pulse counters can be specified to allow programming of direction of rotation, speed and number of revolutions, and even fractions of a revolution. This means the motors can provide near instant stop/start/reversal and drive under load with characteristics similar to those of a stepper motor.
For tensioning, winding, capping and accurate positioning applications Huco Dynatork has a comprehensive range of electromagnetic, magnetic particle and permanent magnet clutches and brakes. This range also includes a variety of linear motion products including Kerk leadscrews whose screw thread form is designed for maximum life, quiet operation and compatibility with Kerk's anti-backlash nut designs. Space saving linear rails - a comprehensive range of linear shafts and precise shaft 'quick-locks' - complete this product group.
To meet customer demand for more products from a single, trusted supplier Huco Dynatork continues to expand its power transmission range with products that have distinct design and performance benefits over other products on the market. For example, in addition to standard and customdesigned ac and dc motors, units are also available that are waterproof and ventilation-free. These are complemented by a range of high-quality gearboxes. Other products include power transmission couplings and engine couplings for hydrostatic drives, stock gears, rod ends, linkages, clamps and collars.
Spacers, pillars, stand-offs they're simple but important components in electronic assembly and surprisingly they form a significant part of the Huco Dynatork business. The range is now extensive in terms of standard sizes and materials and all products are available for immediate delivery.
Huco Dynatork continues to impress its quality hallmark onto a growing range of engineering components with the express purpose of becoming a reliable source of supply for a comprehensive selection of drive-line components.
