Miki Pulley has introduced its “Paraflex” Pin-Hub Couplings for direct sale to OEM’s in North America. Key features of these couplings include high allowable misalignment, extremely low backlash, and resonance dampening.
With a pin-bushing type design, these Paraflex Couplings are available in two models. The CPU model has a maximum torque of 25 Nm and allows angular misalignment up to 4°. The CPE model has a maximum torque of 10 Nm and allows angular misalignment up to 1°. Available bore sizes range from 3.0 mm to 22 mm.
An important feature of these Paraflex Couplings from Miki Pulley is the ease of installation, according to the company. Clamp-style hubs made of sintered aluminum slip easily onto two connecting shafts with the coupling locked into position with recessed tightening screws.
Handling system speeds up to 6000 rpm depending on the model, Paraflex Couplings are RoHS compliant. They operate in temperature environments from -30°C to +100°C. They are ideal for automated packaging systems, chip mounters, electric discharge machines, and similar applications.
In addition to the Paraflex Coupling line, Miki Pulley designs and manufactures a complete line of motion control components. These include clutches, brakes, flexible shaft couplings, shaft hub locking devices and speed control devices.
