Effectiveness, safety, customization, profitability – the diverse and complex requirements in drive and damping technology are constantly increasing and changing. How do development engineers approach them? What specific solutions do they create for different industrial and technological sectors? How are pioneering innovations successfully achieved that provide real added value? We discuss this and much more in our The Engineer's Blog.

All Couplings are not Equal: Smart Engineering Considers Both Technical and Economic Requirements

Bending stress, torque shock, natural frequency and resonance: all the machinery elements in drive systems – i.e. above all axes, shafts, bearings and couplings – must withstand such strains. The coupling plays a prominent system-influencing role which it continues to fulfill better and better due to advanced development.
