The Difference Between: High-Gain Rubber and All-Metal Couplings

May 31, 2024
Which type of couplings, all-metal or high-gain rubber, facilitate high-speed precision positioning?

Shaft couplings that efficiently transmit the rotational energy of a motor to a shaft while absorbing system misalignment come in all-metal and high-gain rubber designs. To take advantage of high servomotor gains, engineers must account for vibrations as well as positioning accuracy when choosing a coupling design for motion control applications.

Read on to learn about the difference between all-metal and high-gain rubber couplings in positioning accuracy, vibration control, speed, and industrial productivity.
