Zero-Backlash Couplings

An extended range of miniature couplings as small as 1/4-in. (6.35-mm) diameter suits shaft sizes down to 3/32 in. (2.38 mm).

The onepiece units have zero backlash and can transmit rotational torque in angular, parallel, and/or skewed modes. Available in aluminum, stainless steel, or plastic, the units can be used in precision engineering applications. They are especially able to accommodate tight or skewed connections.
