New Couplings Take Center Stage at BAUMA 2019
The new steel spring coupling from Stromag, which takes the shock loading out of drive transmission, will be on show at BAUMA 2019. The latest product development from Stromag, which is part of Altra Industrial Motion Corp., offers a robust solution that can be tailored to suit any application in the off-highway and construction sectors.
For earth-moving and road construction equipment, there are considerable challenges for the power transmission and braking components on vehicles operating in these harsh environments. Providing compact and effective power transmission between the engine and the drive train is crucial to the reliable operation of this equipment.
Stromag has a long and successful history of delivering reliable power transmission products for industrial applications and this latest development builds on this. Designed to minimise shock-loading in the drivetrain, the new spring-loaded coupling can improve the service life of transmission components and improve vehicle reliability.
This latest product development complements the extensive driveline coupling portfolio that is offered by Stromag. Designed to dampen torsional vibrations and to absorb high shock loads, the coupling delivers optimum power efficiency without being affected by heat or the surrounding environment. In addition, the coupling can compensate slightly for shaft misalignment. Stromag couplings can be specified for a wide variety of applications.
Of course, downtime in any machinery needs to be kept to an absolute minimum, so reliability must be at the foundation of every component. Stromag has the design expertise and manufacturing facilities to ensure that every product is optimised for its application. In this way, the company ensures that it delivers another component that will continue to extend productivity and reliability.
From the 8th – 14th April, Stromag will be exhibiting at BAUMA 2019 in Messe München, Munich. Along with many premier brands from Altra Industrial Motion Corp., Stromag will be displaying a range of solutions for the construction and off-highway sectors.
