— FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE —

New KHS Coupling Series from GAM

Mount Prospect, IL -A torsion-resistant coupling series tested to unparalleled speeds of 25,000 RPM and designed to operate even faster is available from GAM. No other metal bellows coupling in the industry is able to operate in applications above 15,000 RPM. The innovative KHS Coupling Series features a four-corrugated, stainless steel bellow and aluminum conical bushing hubs.

With an unsurpassed low moment of inertia and high torsional stiffness, this coupling series is ideal for test stands, spindle drives and other high-speed applications. The degree of torsional stiffness ranges from the KHS-15 featuring a nominal torque of 15 Nm at a moment of inertia of 0.03 10-3kgm2 to the KHS-600 with a nominal torque of 600 Nm at a 5.3 10-3kgm2 moment of inertia. The four additional KHS models feature nominal torque ranging from 40 to 400 Nm at a moment of inertia ranging from 0.13 to 2.5 10-3kgm2.

Because of their unique design to achieve a high level of torsional stiffness, metal bellows couplings like the GAM KHS Series are also capable of accommodating significant misalignments between powertrain components. No other coupling style balances these two design requirements so well. For these reasons, the metal bellows are often specified to compensate for assembly misalignments, bearing wear, vibration and thermally induced dimensional changes.

The high-precision GAM KHS Series features maximum lateral misalignment of 0.1 inches and a maximum axial misalignment ranging from 0.5 to 0.7 inches. The couplings range in size from 1.56 to 4.8 inches. GAM's torsion-resistant couplings are maintenance-free, with durable parts and frictional shaft-hub connections.

Due to its patented press-fit connection method to lock the bellows to the hub, GAM's couplings transmit torque around the coupling's entire circumference. This design is more reliable at high temperatures than adhesive connection methods. It also avoids the problems of spot welding where a connection is not in place around the entire coupling circumference.
