Flexure Attachments That Make Cents
Custom attachments are the key to making a flexible coupling or machined spring perfect in a design engineers application. When overall cost is considered there can actually be a savings if other factors are evaluated such as:
• Cost to modify a standard part to make it work.
• Time & expense of changing other system components to accept a catalog standard coupling.
• Ordering and maintaining inventory for additional components necessary to allow using catalog standard coupling.
Custom attachments can take many forms and are normally dictated by the customer’s design requirements. These custom attachments can be in the form of the mating features or method of fixation to the customer’s component. Helical specializes in tailoring a flexible solution for thousands of applications.
Examples of mating features include:
• Keyway in round bore
• D or Double D bore
• Hex bore
• Tapered bores
Examples of fixation:
• Integral Clamp
• Set screw(s)
• Removable Cap on clamp for drop-in installation
• Bolt circle
• Tangs, slots, etc.
