Coupling types and alignment standards part 2

- Dec 01, 2019-

Flexible couplings without elastic components can only compensate the relative displacement of the two axes, but they cannot play a cushioning role. Common types are slider couplings, tooth couplings, universal couplings and chain couplings.

Flexible couplings with elastic elements have the effect of buffering and compensating the relative displacement of the two axes, but the transmitted torque is limited by the elastic elements, which is not as good as flexible couplings without elastic elements. , Plum-shaped couplings, tire-type couplings, snake-shaped spring couplings and reed couplings, etc.
