High horsepower in a small envelope


Composite Disc Coupling

Zero-Max’s Composite Disc Couplings are precise, robust solutions for today’s most demanding high-speed servomotor and motion control applications and allows you to transmit high horsepower in a small envelope.

These high speed flexible shaft couplings are ideal for cyclic applications where speed and repeatable accuracy are critical for keeping systems going 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Withstand the punishment and stress of a servo motor. In comparison, other couplings may have high torsional stiffness specifications; however they can be too brittle to withstand the punishment of high speed reversing applications.

The working part is made of high precision composite material. The Patented design has high torsional stiffness and yet allow for misalignment in high stress applications. Composite Disc Couplings have excellent Chemical and moisture resistance and oprate without maintenance in hostile environments.


Composite Disc Coupling

  • Zero backlash operation: required for reversing loads and precision applications
  • High torsional stiffness: excellent for precision applications
  • Maintenance free: no lubrication required
  • Compact design: does not require a large space between shaft ends
  • Longer life than metal discs: designed and rated for infinite fatigue life; no disc failures due to fretting
  • Broad operational temperature range: -70° to 250°F (-57° to 121°C)
  • Unitized disc pack: no loose bushings or discs for easy replacement
  • Laser cut discs: precision cutting process can be modified for specialized and custom designs that require higher torque, torsional stiffness, or misalignment capabilities
  • Disc material exhibits excellent chemical resistance and electrical insulating properties
  • Black oxide coatings on steel hubs and black anodizing on aluminum hubs inhibits corrosion in normal industrial atmospheres
  • Precision bore in disc bushings allows for a tight fit between shoulder bolt and bushings, keeping the assembly concentric and ensuring smooth high speed operation
  • Precision machined hubs provide further concentricity for quiet operation
  • RoHS compliant: manufactured from RoHS-compliant materials and contain no banned substances


Composite Disc Coupling

Standard and Custom Composite Disc Couplings are available for every application.

Do you need higher misalignment and greater torque capasity in your coupling? Need more flexibility and torsional stiffness? Need a very large bore diameter coupling? Or a long spacer coupling?
Zero-Max’s Composite Disc Couplings are available in a full range of styles, models and sizes. Or Zero-Max will design and build a custom Composite Disc Coupling to handle your needs.

Ideal for high precision applications including packing machines, Pick and place systems, printing machinery, machine tools and most systems using servo motors.
