Shaft couplings, collars, and U-joints join components and shafts together to transmit mechanical power. Shaft couplings join two shafts together to transmit rotary motion from one shaft to the other. They include elastomeric flexible couplings and fluid couplings. Elastomeric flexible couplings compensate for shaft misalignment and deformation and do not require lubrication. Fluid couplings use hydraulic fluid to transmit rotational power between shafts. Shaft collars attach components to a shaft, while U-joints are universal couplings that form joints in shafts to allow movement in any direction.
Elastomeric Flexible Coupling (1)Elastomeric flexible couplings are non-lubricated, material-flexing couplings that are used in a variety of environments. These products provide excellent vibration-dampening capability, high-misalignment capacity, reduced maintenance costs and downtime, and designs for specific applications.
