Flexible couplings are designed to accommodate various types of load conditions. No one type of coupling can provide. the universal solution to all coupling problems; hence many designs are available, each possessing construction features to. accommodate one or more types of application...

...that, they are not felt by the operator. However rigid coupling can also be a problem typically requiring heavier duty and more costly precision components & more difficult assembly. Loose fitting parts can result in noise or lead to premature failure. What is needed is a flexible solution between...

Mechanical Engineer, New Product Development However rigid coupling can also be a problem typically requiring heavier duty and more costly precision components & more difficult assembly. Loose fitting parts can result in noise or lead to premature failure...

A prospective customer wanted to replace a traditional torque-limiting coupling, which was expensive, delicate, and inflexible, with an inexpensive, robust, flexible coupling. The coupling needed to completely decouple driving and driven sides at approximately 150 inch pounds of torque, in order...

...freedom: Limitless possibilities in position motor and driven components. High efficiency: Flexible Shafts are 90 %-95% efficient. Gears, U-Joints, Belts and Pulleys have much lower efficiencies due to greater frictional losses. Large off-sets: Flexible couplings allow only 5 degrees of off-set...

...by a clearer understanding of the coupling's functions. Stiffness values of couplings in both torsional and misalignment directions, as well as damping of couplings in the torsional direction, have a substantial, often determining, effect on the drive system dynamics. Torsionally flexible couplings are often...

...in alignment—and should be designed that way—unanticipated. misalignment is a given, whether it be from installation, swing of the shaft itself, or heat deformation during. operation. Thus, it is the flexible coupling that usually worries designers. Flexible Couplings: Selection Checklist. Before selecting...

As compared with flexible couplings, rigid couplings have limited application. Rigid couplings do not have the ability to compensate for shaft misalignments and are therefore used where shafts are already positioned in precise lateral and angular alignment. Any misalignment between shafts...
