R+W America, Coupling Technology (Bensenville, IL) offers maintenance- free disc pack couplings in seven new sizes from 350 Nm to 24,000 Nm. Additional connection methods allow for easier installation and maintenance. The spacers are customizable, and can be designed for any length.

The LP series is a backlash-free coupling driven through pure friction force. The connecting flanges are pressed to the disc pack faces using high-strength bolts. When properly assembled, the torque is transmitted purely through the disc pack, and no additional stress is placed on the bolt shanks.
