Candy Controls CL18 couplingsAggressively priced, new Coup-Link economy disc and curved-jaw couplings—as components of servo motors in packaging machinery—exhibit identical bi-directional rotational characteristics, and are torsionally stiff to ensure accuracy and repeatability while at the same time absorbing various types of misalignment. The CL18 Economy Disc Series single- and double-disc couplings come in nine sizes, with a torque range of 12-in. pounds to 4,500-in. pounds. The CL18's clamp-type locking collar accommodates a bore range from 3/16- to 1-3/4-in. The torque range of the CL16, CL17 and CL 20 Economy Curved Jaw Series is from 9.7 to 7,600-in. pounds, with a bore range of 1/8- to more than 2-in.
