Types and Functions of Flexible Couplings

What is Flexible Coupling?

In situations where two shafts of a given mechanism are misaligned, flexible couplings are used to transmit torque from one shaft to another. These couplings can accommodate differing degrees of misalignment approximately up to 3°. In addition to this feature, the couplings are also used for noise reduction and vibration damping.

There are three Basic Functions involved under this category, and they are:

1. Transmit Power: Basically couplings are used to transmit mechanical power from one device to another. This power is in the form of mechanical torque which is found at some given speed. However, the power lost by a coupling is very small in amount, but still exhibit some efficiency as compared to others. Continue reading »
