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.
As we already mentioned in previous blog posts RINGFEDER® Couplings not only play an important role in heavy-duty equipment like cranes and hoists or pumps and compressors. But also our couplings can make or break applications requiring advanced, precision motion control—like surgical robots, medical device manufacturing, medical imaging, lab automation, semiconductor equipment, and industrial robots.
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.
Typically, engineers focus on the smallest of details. From time to time, however, it is worth taking a look at the big picture – or even beyond it. What are the concerns of the market? What is being talked about and above all: where does the journey lead to? Here is our overview.
