Product Announcement from Ameridrives Couplings
SL SF Series
The SL and SF Series spindles are designed for medium duty mill applications and auxiliary equipment. Quick or frequent disconnection, and some of the advance design technology incorporated into more expensive type spindles, are made available in these series.
SL Series Spindle
The SL Spindle is for medium torque applications where high misalignment capacity is required and where equipment must be disconnected quickly and/or frequently. Typical applications include drives for auxiliary equipment such as levelers, uncoilers, side trimmers, tension, run-out tables, pinch rolls, brush rolls, bridles, flatteners, and scale breakers. SL Spindles can also be used on applications where shaft center-to-center spacing is minimal and where diameters are limited.
SF Series Spindle
The SF Spindle is for medium torque applications where high misalignment capacity is required. It is used on applications where equipment is not subjected to frequent disconnecting of drive components. Typical applications include auxiliary equipment such as pinch rolls, tension bridles, continuous casting equipment, plastic and rubber calenders, rotary side guides, paper mills, as well as electrolytic cleaning, pickle and galvanizing lines. The Ameridrives Amerigear Series SF Flexible Spindle is similar to a tandem arrangement using flange-type couplings (Series F) except the gearing will accommodate higher misalignment. The gear teeth are heat treated to provide higher torque ratings and special molded high angle lip seals are used.
