Mfg4: Flexible Shaft Couplings

Precision electrodeposited flexible shaft couplings provide low torque capabilities and ensure accurate positioning between motors, driven loads and feedback devices. for shaft sizes ranging from 0.090 to 1”(2.2-25.4 mm). They are also laterally flexible to accommodate shaft misalignment up to 31//deg// or parallel misalignments (shafts parallel but offset) up to 0.076” (1.9 mm). For attachment to shafts, standard set screw hub, split hub with clamping collar or integral clamp hub styles are available. Nickel alloy bellows feature zero backlash, vibration damping capability, zero cyclic speed variation during 360//deg// rotation, very low elastic windup, due to torsional rigidity, and low side thrust on bearings because of lateral flexibility. Bellows couplings are ideal for use in critical applications such as resolvers, encoders, servos, and motion control devices, or in other precision motion control applications that require mechanically tight systems.
