Schmidt-Kupplung offers a variety of compact couplings designed for use in the production and processing of baked goods, meat products and cheeses, as well as the packaging of finished end products.

Rack ovens with rotating racks and turntables are used to maintain uniform baking quality.

For this application Schmidt-Kupplung designed a special version of the Loewe GK in steel.

This coupling is designed to offer generous angular and radial misalignment compensation and also to resist axial motion, ensuring the transmission of push and pull loads.

The couplings combine the technical features of a single universal joint, such as angular misalignment capacity and being axially fixed, with the radial misalignment capacity of a coupling.

The coupling’s crossed pins slide easily in the bearings, which allows a pivotal and radial displacement of the two hubs with lowest side and bearing loads.

The axially stiff coupling has a special spigot shaft design, allowing it to perform the function of turning and lifting the inserted racks.

Here, very high standards are required of the axial stiffness and of the parallel and angular compensation.

Torsionally stiff couplings of the Semiflex range are employed in continuous systems in the production of meat products.

In this application, the products to be processed run through several different chambers for different treatment procedures, such as the heat-treatment and refrigeration sections.

The chambers are driven outside the product area by worm gears.

Different temperature ranges cause shaft misalignment and tension that are compensated by the compact precision coupling.

The radial shaft misalignment is compensated for via pivoting parallel movement of two pairs of coupling links.

The torsionally stiff coupling for large, variable radial displacement is also suitable for systems that are subject to frequent washing processes.

For packaging machines in the food industry, Schmidt-Kupplung produces couplings made completely of VA stainless steel and equipped with advanced-performance plain bearings.
