Advantages of Flexible Couplings:
– Flexible, fail-safe coupling for medium up to highest torques; allows shifting of critical speeds.
– Compact design, low weights, and mass moments of inertia.
– Suitable for plug-in assembly.
– Hub-hub design.
– With brake drum.
– With brake disk.
– Optionally out of cast iron or steel.
Applications of Flexible Couplings
Flexible couplings are designed to transmit torque from one shaft to another. The flexibility of these connections allows them to accommodate a certain degree of shaft misalignment, and they are used in a variety of applications.
Flexible couplings are the ideal solution for all kinds of power transmission systems. It is an inexpensive solution and can be easily installed. It is field replaceable and has good lateral and axial misalignment capabilities.
A flexible coupling can be used to connect the motor to the torque sensor. They are commonly used in motion control applications. They are easy to install and offer good torsional rigidity.
