06 Apr STM introducing new couplings for UMI Series
The new pin elastic coupling is now available on UMI worm gearboxes, which has a number of performance related advantages.
The coupling reduces heat transmission through the motor shaft, dampens high motor vibration, increases flexibility and stock rotation without any increase in geared motor dimensions.
STM’s UMI gear boxes cut down on maintenance and minimise production downtime.
The UMI range is relatively new and the outer gear case is to industry standard dimensions, so it easily interchanges with common units.
The system, which connects the electric motor to the gearbox, prevents fretting of the key way, vibration and also corrosion caused by environmental conditions such as moisture.
