Motion-Control Couplings

May 25, 2006
A new line of motion-control couplings provides accurate transfer of motion between two rotating shafts, compensating for parallel, angular, and axial misalignments.

To cover multiple markets, the line includes Beam, Oldham, Mini-Jaw, Bellows, Mini-Soft, Mini-Disc, and Curved Jaw styles with zero backlash requirements. Maximum temperature tolerances on some styles reach 300°F. For high-speed operations, the GS Curved Jaw mini coupling has a maximum of 31,800 rpm, while the Bellows clamp style is designed for higher torque and bore capacities.
