Coupling Selection for Linear Guides & Actuators

As a complement to our Design on Demand series, we are releasing a new series of videos from our Engineers to yours featuring tips, application tricks and maintenance procedures on our YouTube Channel. We call this our Engineer to Engineer  (E2E) Series!

Our first video is from Senior Motion Systems Engineer Chuck Leonard, and will cover how to choose the correct coupling for your actuator or linear guide. Chuck will be using a torque wrench to test the flexibility of two of our most popular couplings, the Oldham style coupling and the slit type coupling to see how they compare.

Want to learn more about MISUMI’s coupling options? Check out our full 19-Minute Webinar on Couplings, or you can email Chuck directly about your application.
