Industrial Motion Control Products
For over 70-years, Zero-Max, Inc. has designed and manufactured servo-rated shaft couplings, SAE and non-SAE overhung load adaptors, adjustable speed drives, keyless shaft bushings, and other innovative motion control and power transmission technologies. With an international reputation for innovative designs, you can count on motion control products from Zero-Max delivering the quality, durability, and performance required for demanding applications.
OEMs use Zero-Max high precision-engineered solutions in automation machines worldwide, including packaging, printing, CNC machine tools, wind turbines, forestry and construction equipment, servo motor-driven machines, and more.
High-Quality Power Transmission Products
Zero-Max’s power transmission products include variable speed drives, right angle gearboxes, keyless shaft bushings, and other products designed for high performance applications. Adjustable Speed Drives are ideal for lower-speed applications and are easy to operate with a lever or screw control. Crown® Right Angle Gearboxes are available in both standard and IP65-Rated/nickel-plated versions with counter-rotating, two-way or three-way options featuring a compact design with smooth, quiet operation.
Overload Safety Devices provide dependable overload protection to prevent system damage and come in six different configurations. Roh’Lix® Linear Actuators convert rotary motion into linear motion and are designed for horizontal or vertical applications. Phase Adjusting Hubs are an easy way to change the phase relationship between a drive component and shaft for fine-tuning timing adjustments.
Flexible Shaft Couplings
Zero-Max flexible shaft couplings handle large misalignments while delivering zero backlash, maintenance-free operation. Their high-quality shaft couplings are RoHS compliant and available in several models and sizes to meet a wide range of mechanical needs.
Aerospace-grade Composite Disc Couplings provide high torsional stiffness and high dynamic load capacity for 24/7 operation. ServoClass® Couplings provide high torsional stiffness for precision positioning in servo motor applications.
Control Flex Shaft Couplings accommodate high parallel, angular and axial misalignment between shafts while providing constant transmission of torque in feedback device applications. Schmidt Couplings enable a variable parallel offset between two shafts and are adaptable to wide variations in radial displacement.
Overhung Load Adaptors for Hydraulic Systems
Zero-Max Overhung Load Adaptors set the standard for OHLA design and include SAE and non-SAE mount options. Rugged cast iron housings and 130,000 PSI stress-proof steel shafts are standard and provide durability while protecting the motor and pump components from excess loading and hydraulic fluid contamination.
Overhung load adaptors from Zero-Max are available with various shaft options in face or foot-mounting configurations. Order standard overhung load adaptors from stock or work with an application engineer to design a custom solution to your unique material, mounting, load, and/or speed specifications.

Keyless Shaft Bushings
Keyless shaft bushings from Zero-Max enable precise mounting, create secure shaft-to-hub connections, allow for frequent mountings or adjustments, and eliminate the need for milled keyways in the shaft. Select from several easily adjustable models featuring zero backlash operation to reduce stress and wear on mounted components.
ETP® Keyless locking devices mount and dismount in seconds for fast changeovers and easy fastening and adjusting.
They provide excellent axial and radial runout and feature double-walled sleeves and low-profile dimensions. Posi-Lok® Keyless Shaft Bushings are ideal for positioning and locking shaft components in a system. They offer high torque transmission and radial load capacity in various configurations and shaft mount applications.
