The production of labels and packaging, e.g. for everyday necessities, today is carried out in highly complex, multifunctional plants, integrating diverse pressure, punching and processing techniques. They mainly work in continuous operation and at a high productivity, the top priority in these processes being to provide for an optimum drive and synchronisation of the individual machining stations in order to ensure a permanently reliable and exact production process. In the plants of a globally leading manufacturer, this is ensured by cutting-edge servo drive technology, which, as a standard, is equipped with specially designed coupling solutions by RINGFEDER®. The pressure unit uses compact, torsionally rigid metal bellows couplings of the RINGFEDER® GWB series for zero-backlash, high-precision torque transmission in both directions of rotation. Within the punching unit, elastomer couplings of the RINGFEDER® GWE type, which compensate for misalignments, ensure the effective vibration damping of impacts caused by intermittent operation. Furthermore, the tailor-made RINGFEDER® couplings contribute to ensuring a stable and profitable production process, also due to their exceptional installation and maintenance friendliness – from the paper or carton line to the ready label or the folded box blank.
