The new compression device makes the installation space of bellows coupling smaller
The dynamic balance of this coupling is relatively good, and it is suitable for use in high-speed situations. In addition, it can also continue to be dynamically balanced according to the specific operating conditions of the customer to increase the speed. In the installation method, because the conical sleeve locking method is adopted, in order to ensure the uniform force on the bellows, it is necessary to use a torque wrench to tighten the screws. It should be noted that before connecting the two shafts, the two shafts need to be Check the coaxiality to better protect the ripples.
Suitable for industry:
High-precision positioning: When it comes to rotary positioning, the advantages of the bellows coupling's zero backlash and high torsional stiffness come to the fore. Running losses due to backlash are eliminated and torsional forces between the input and output ends of the coupling are minimized. Bellows couplings have the highest torsional stiffness among common flexible couplings. Another advantage is its continuous symmetry. Most flexible power transmission elements have some asymmetry, which means that due to misalignment, the coupling is at different stress distributions at different points in a single rotation. They accumulate and release energy to varying degrees as they spin out of alignment, with slight variations in output speed. In most applications, this is almost negligible. However, the continuous symmetry of the bellows offers measurable advantages for precision applications requiring optimized positional accuracy.
High Dynamic Motion: Bellows couplings are also ideal for high dynamic motion applications. High torsional stiffness translates into shorter settling times when the load starts, stops and reverses suddenly. As the weak link in most direct drive systems, the elastic coupling often determines the stiffness of the entire drive shaft. Couplings with higher torsional stiffness can increase the natural frequency of the system and reduce the amplitude for faster motion. When selecting the proper coupling, bellows couplings allow designers to increase cycle rates in cam and reverse applications. Since bellows couplings are also preferred in system configurations with a low moment of inertia, they also play a role in minimizing the moment of inertia.
High Speed: For high speed applications, the same geometry of the coupling will come into play. Light weight, continuous symmetry, and uniform stress distribution all contribute to the smooth operation of the equipment at high speed. Standard bellows couplings are rated at 10,000 rpm and their limiting factor is the clamping sleeve. Higher rotational speeds can be achieved by balancing the coupling assembly. In some cases, bellows couplings can rotate in excess of 10,000 rpm.
Extreme Temperature Resistance: Metal couplings are often preferred over elastomeric couplings when mechanical equipment is subjected to extreme temperatures because their mechanical properties remain essentially unchanged even over a wide temperature range. When using welded joints instead of glued joints, bellows couplings can meet customer requirements. Its unique advantage is that, unlike other types of maintenance-free metal couplings such as diaphragm couplings, bellows couplings have a higher tolerance for axial movement. This enables them to absorb axial motion that may be caused by thermal expansion and other structural changes in the driveline. Therefore, high torque bellows couplings are often used in the drive shafts of heavy equipment installed in remote locations.
