The Hydraulic Shrink Disc provides high integrity keyless fit joints using convenient, low cost slip-fit designs. Our design eliminates heat at assembly as well as keys, splines, and the need for plug/ring gauges. Shaft ends are simplified therefore reducing design, manufacturing and maintenance costs.
When used on a straight shaft, the Shrink Disc allows for infinite axial adjustment of the hubs position on the shaft eliminating the need for shimming the coupling length
Retrofit To Existing Hardware
In high power density applications, it is the total overhung moment that impacts rotor dynamics. The Shrink Disc allows for designs with smaller shafts and shorter interfaces which translates into reduced overhung moments.
Hydraulically Applied Clamp Pressure For High Torque Capacity
High performance equipment often requires high power density. The Hydraulic Shrink Disc provides ultra-secure clamping of shaft elements with reduced a shaft diameter.
