Working Principle of Rigid Coupling

Rigid spacer couplings function by physically connecting two shafts to transmit torque and rotation. Unlike flexible couplings, they do not accommodate misalignment but ensure a fixed, precise connection.

The coupling consists of two hubs, connected by a spacer, that are attached to the respective shafts. When torque is applied to one shaft, it is directly transferred to the second shaft through the coupling, ensuring synchronized rotation.

This direct connection is essential in applications like virtual reality hardware, where accuracy and response time are critical to the user experience.

How to Choose the Right Rigid Coupling

  • Application Requirements: Consider the specific needs of your virtual reality hardware, including torque requirements and alignment precision.
  • Shaft Size and Type: Ensure the coupling chosen fits the shaft sizes and types in your application.
  • Environmental Conditions: Select a coupling that can withstand the operating environment of your virtual reality system.
  • Material: Choose a material that offers the durability and performance needed for your application.
  • Installation and Maintenance: Consider ease of installation and the maintenance needs of the coupling in your virtual reality hardware.

Maintenance of Rigid Coupling
