12 Jul Unleashing the power of couplings
In the fast-paced world of paper and board production, the spotlight often falls on the machinery that tirelessly creates the products people rely on daily. However, hidden behind the scenes, an essential component ensures smooth operations: couplings. These unsung heroes bridge the gap between misaligned shafts, enabling conveyors, pumps, fans, and rolls to seamlessly collaborate. In an industry characterised by misalignment, vibration, shock loads, and torsional variations, these couplings must effortlessly withstand these challenges.
