Flexible Shaft Couplings

Zero-Max flexible shaft couplings handle large misalignments in today’s most demanding high-speed servomotor and motion control applications while delivering zero backlash, maintenance-free operation. Our high-quality shaft couplings are RoHS compliant and available in several models and sizes to meet a wide range of mechanical needs. Zero Backlash Composite Disc Couplings from Zero-Max is the reliable choice for companies, who want to keep their systems going 24 hours a day, 7 days a week without breakdowns. That’s why our slogan is “Install and forget”. ServoClass® Couplings provide high torsional stiffness for precision positioning in servo motor demanding applications. Control Flex Shaft Couplings accommodate high parallel, angular and axial misalignment between shafts while providing constant transmission of torque in feedback device applications. Schmidt Couplings enable a variable parallel offset between two shafts and are adaptable to wide variations in radial displacement.

Over Hung Load Adaptor

Zero-Max is one of the world's leading experts in load adapter technology:

 Our Last adapters (OHLA) set the standard for OHLA design and include standard SAE mounts and non-SAE mount options.

The OHLA is developed to protect a hydraulic system and thus prevents breakdowns and expensive repairs by absorbing radial and axial loads on pumps and motors in a hydraulic system. In addition, the OHLA protects against the ingress of water, dirt and other foreign particles at pumps and motors in a hydraulic system.

The OHLA can also function as a transition piece between a PTO outlet and oil motor/pump.

From the smallest model 200 SAE A version to the largest model 1500 SAE F version, OHLA is supplied with a robust steel cast housing, quality ball or roller bearings and many different designs and steel grades on shafts.

All models can be both flange and foot mounted.

On request, Zero-Max can supply customized solutions for all models, even with very low unit quantities.

Wind Turbine Products

Wind Couplings 

Our flexible composite disc wind couplings feature a unique, patented composite disc design that can withstand harsh environmental conditions.

Our flexible, dielectric composite disc couplings provide electrical insulation to nullify current leaks from the generator into the gearbox, thus preventing damage to bearings and teeth.

Intelligent design minimizes reaction loads while providing the required torsional stiffness value to suit drivetrain requirements.

The couplings themselves are fully tested and refined to handle loads well beyond the needs of the application.

They have been proven to perform with no maintenance for 20-plus years through testing under conditions simulating a 20-year torque load spectrum of continuous operation.
