Presstek, a manufacturer of digital printing equipment, was looking for an improvement in the design of a drive pulley used in one of their Laser Imaging machines. The pulley attached at the end of a shaft using clamp collars was prone to slipping, causing vibration and runout, resulting in a loss of productivity and increased maintenance costs.
CMT’s Solution for Digital Printer Equipment
By integrating the CMT connection system CMT was able to remove the clamp collars and reduce the overall size and weight of the part. The new component was more cost-effective to manufacture, resulted in improved concentricity and increased productivity.
