Coupling is a mechanical component that connects the drive shaft and driven shaft of the motor to transmit power. The shaft coupling is mechanically flexible and can provide tolerance for shaft misalignment. As a result, the flexibility of this coupling can reduce uneven bearing wear, equipment vibration and other mechanical failures caused by misalignment.
Shaft couplings are mainly used in factory automation and can be used for large-scale power transmission, such as feeding conveyor equipment.
Even if the motor and workpiece are directly connected and correctly fixed, slight misalignment can occur over time due to changes in temperature and changes over a long period of time, causing vibration and damage.
Shaft couplings serve as an important link to minimize impact and vibration, allowing smooth rotation to be transmitted.
