R+W metal bellows coupling

EMO Hannover – The world of metalworking

From 18 to 23 September 2017, the EMO trade fair takes place in the German city of Hanover. Over 2050 exhibitors from 45 countries will be coming to showcase their products and services at the world's leading trade fair for metalworking. EMO's motto this year – “Connecting systems for intelligent production” – conveys current topics and trends.

The industry is presenting innovations from the fields of machine tools, precision tools and automation components, all the way up to systems with a customer focus. A wide range of events and special shows round off the trade fair's programme. Naturally, coupling manufacturer R+W from Klingenberg will also be in attendance as an exhibitor. In hall 25, stand C36, R+W will be using proven and new methods alike to present the world of precision couplings as a key connection element for systems that work with and machine metal.

R+W elastomer coupling

Thanks to the virtual reality function in the R+W app, the user experiences the wide variety of couplings in a more vivid, authentic and detailed manner than ever before – only actually touching them would get you closer! A number of selected exhibition pieces have been made available for this very purpose. The torsionally rigid metal bellows couplings are available from 0.05 Nm to 100,000 Nm as well as in different hub connections.

R+W safety coupling

Vibration-damping elastomer couplings from the EK series are available with different elastomer shore hardnesses – up to a maximum of 25,000 Nm depending on their size and design.

R+W disc pack coupling with integrated cooling lubricant grommet

Zero-backlash precision safety couplings protect against damage and reduce downtimes. R+W disc pack couplings are also available with an integrated cooling lubricant grommet, providing valuable benefits to manufacturers of machine tools with a long spindle design. Consultation appointments at R+W's stand at the EMO trade fair can now be arranged at www.rw-couplings.com/exhibition-dates/emo-hannover.
