High Precision Servo and Safety Couplings Featured in New Catalog from GAM

High Precision Servo and Safety Couplings 2008 Catalog Mount Prospect, Illinios, March 18, 2008 — GAM's complete line of bellows couplings, elastomer couplings, direct drive safety couplings and indirect drive safety couplings is featured in a new full-color 36-page catalog available now. An easy-to-follow product selection chart guides users through bore and torque ranges, hub style, bellow connection method and other major features for each series in the product line.

Select couplings offer several unique features. GAM's patented EASY Clamp System prevents damage to hubs and allows easy shaft mounting/dismounting while compensating for tolerance differences between shaft and hub. The brass wire press-fit connection is mechanically formed between hub and multi-layered bellow for zero backlash. No glue insures the brass wire press-fit connection in high temperature and/or chemical sensitive applications. The micro plasma weld connection offers even heat distribution which results in a long-lasting connection between hub and bellow and is ideal for high temperature applications.

GAM's safety couplings are spring loaded form fit couplings that transmit torque through the use of a degressive cup spring. This design results in a very low disengagement mass when an overload occurs. Degressive spring curve, automatic re-engagement and bearing support safety coupling mechanisms are available.

GAM offers same day delivery on several standard couplings as well as custom bored couplings.
