R+W has added LPZ short spacer into its disc coupling product line

R+W has added LPZ short spacer into its disc coupling product line 

In its effort to fill in and complete its flexible disc coupling offering, R+W has added a standard coupling adapter which provides customers with more configuration and connection options when selecting couplings for industrial applications. 

The LPZ spacer accompanies a quickly expanding product line and offers lateral misalignment capabilities in a very small package. It is available in six sizes ranging from 500 Nm to 12,000 Nm and is able to mate with any LP coupling hub R+W has to offer within the corresponding size. Both ends of this spacer connect via a precision machined stainless steel disc pack, which transfers torque through a pure friction-drive design. This ensures that shear force on the fastening bolts is eliminated and the assembly is completely backlash-free.


While this spacer is made entirely of steel, all R+W coupling components can be made from special materials and balanced for higher speeds if the applications demands it.
