Which couplings are interchangeable? Can you switch coupling types? This article provides a summary of how Lovejoy approaches these questions.
The Basics of Jaw Coupling Technology
This companion piece to the “Spiders are Key” article explains the difference between rubber-in-compression and rubber-in-shear coupling technology. It also offers an overview of the advantages of the rubber in compression technology for many applications.
Spiders are Key to Jaw Coupling Performance
An essential component of couplings, flexible elastomeric spiders transmit torque and accept misalignment. Design and material options for these flexible elements let you tailor them to the application.
Sorting Out Flexible Couplings
Don’t order couplings by mechanical specifications alone; first be sure you’ve selected the correct type. This tutorial steers you through the different categories of couplings and spells out the capabilities of each type.
