Packaging Machinery

Drive Technology for Packaging Machinery

Speed, precision and reliability are crucial to packaging applications. The faster a product can be packaged, the higher the value of the packaging machine. Zero-Max offers several motion control products that will help packaging machine designers achieve higher performance. Designing with Zero-Max components will improve machine speed and ensure that the system is less prone to breakdowns.

Large companies worldwide and across all industries trust the Zero-Max® brand in their high-performance packaging machinery. Our motion control products are designed for high precision and are proven to help packaging machine designers achieve superior performance, especially in high speed and torque registration applications. Designing your packaging machinery with our motion control components will improve machine speed, precision, product quality, and ensure that the system is durable and reliable.

Field-Proven Designs for Packaging Machinery

Zero-Max zero-backlash flexible shaft couplings, overload protection devices, and keyless shaft bushings help you achieve consistent and high-volume throughput with their high precision designs and construction. Designed for reliability and low maintenance, our motion control components also reduce equipment downtime, equating to better profitability. With extensive stock and complete in-house machining capability, we can also provide short lead-times on both standard and custom designs.

Achieve Higher Throughput

Packaging machinery designers have many options for connecting a servo motor to a ball screw, gearbox, or other driven devices. Still, time and again, they prefer the reliability and high performance of our flexible shaft couplings. Our packaging machinery couplings handle parallel, axial, and angular misalignment while damping noise and reducing vibration.

CD Couplings

These composite disc flexible shaft couplings feature zero backlash and high torsional stiffness for reliable indexing and high cycle rates.

Servoflex Couplings

These metal disc flexible shaft couplings enable ball screw actuators to acquire a position faster and smoother with added reliability and lower bearing reaction loads.

Prevent Overload Damage

The high operational speeds of servomotors and other packaging machinery components can make your equipment susceptible to jams, overloads, and other damage-causing issues. Our Overload Safety Couplings respond to these issues by disconnecting the power source and protecting the equipment and product being packaged.

Torq-Tender – Safety Couplings

Torq-Tender® Overload Safety Couplings are tamper-resistant mechanical torque limiters that provide reliable overload protection, including single-position reset to maintain you packaging machine’s synchronization.

Torque Limiter – H-TLC

H-TLC Overload Safety Couplings are field-adjustable mechanical torque limiters that are inherently corrosion-resistant for harsh environments.
