When over 2,000 exhibitors from 45 countries gather to showcase their products and expertise at the world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector, you can be sure that R+W Antriebselemente GmbH is at the heart of the action. This subsidiary of Poppe + Potthoff was at EMO Hannover 2017 to showcase its latest coupling portfolio for metalworking. As well as metal bellows couplings, elastomer couplings and safety couplings that deliver the ultimate in precision, the company also exhibited a special version of a disc-pack coupling. This coupling with integrated cooling lubrication is set to be particularly useful to manufacturers of machine tools with a long spindle assembly.
A further highlight at the R+W stand was the updated R+W app. This uses virtual reality to enable unprecedented immersion into the R+W product range and break down the boundaries between the real and virtual worlds. With the latest update, users now also have access to new, much sought-after features such as setting the torque for a safety coupling.
