Especially for the challenging application in a high-performance bottling plant with an output quantity of more than 10,000 bottles per hour, RINGFEDER® designed a locking assembly of the RfN 7012 series. This guarantees the customer an extremely reliable connection of the drive shaft of the flange star with the drive itself as well as the required transmission of maximum torques. Furthermore, the locking assembly was dimensioned in a stainless material in order to comply with the cleanliness and hygiene standards that are required in this field of application, even with regard to the resistance capacity to aggressive cleaning agents.
Elastomer and metal bellows coupling acting as a connection between the drive and output, e.g. for connecting a geared motor and a screw conveyor, are RINGFEDER® solutions that are typically used by customers of packaging units of any type and size. The backlash-free, high-precision RINGFEDER® coupling systems compensate for radial, axial and angular misalignment and, when dimensioned optimally, are wear-free and maintenance-free. All around the word, users utilise them to significantly increase the efficiency and service life of their packaging machines.
