Vibration causing coupling failures – Causes and solutions

Vibration causes coupling failure for a number of different reasons Couplings provide a vital function of mechanical power transmission from engine source to equipment. Traditional coupling technology is broken into 2 sections, high speed low angular misalignment or lower speed and higher angular misalignment. Traditional high speed coupling need precise installation High speed coupling like […]

Grid couplings are they the right choice for you?

Grid coupling or Biddy Coupling replacement

Grid couplings or Biddy Couplings are flexible couplings used in high torque low misalignment applications. Biddy couplings were originally invented by Dr James Biddy in 1917, by mating two shafts together with hubs and a specially wound and tempered spring to allow the two shafts to become angularly misaligned. Grid couplings small amount of angular […]

Twin Spring Coupling adds North American sales representatives

north american sales representatives for twin spring coupling

Twin Spring Coupling is proud to announce its North American sales representatives servicing the US and Canadian marketplace. Twin Spring Coupling would like to announce the following list of sale representative companies to support the expansion of our product range out into the Industrial distribution marketplace. The North American sales representative agents are AF Industrial […]

New single direction Coupling now available, great for motors, pumps and conveyors application

Universal joint alternative -Twin Spring Coupling products alternatives to all other flexible shaft couplings

Single direction coupling by Twin Spring Coupling to add to our range of couplings. Traditionally the couplings with its 2 springs, had one counter wound, so allowing the couplings to be multi directional. We have had a number of customers in the industrial sector especially ask for a single direction coupler, especially as they didnt […]

Cardan Joints or Universal joints, how about something better

Cardan Joints or Hooke joints? The Cardan joint was invented by Gerolamo Cardano in the 15th century, or at least the gimbal mountings that a modern day Universal joint contains. The Cardan joint gimbals are what we see today in the cross or bearings cross of a universal joint, the actual universal joints themselves were […]

Spring Couplings – Something new to replace your other spring couplings

Spring Couplings alternative

Spring couplings are nothing new on the power transmission coupling marketplace until now. Their maintenance free design makes them a good alternative to the likes of a jaw coupling or universal joint. They are varied in their appearance, size, torque capability, price points and flexibility. Spring in outer hub. Multiple layer springs. Spline cut from […]

Twin Spring Couplings now offering a T6061 Aluminum constructed version of their spring couplings

Twin Spring couplings flexible coupling replaces universal joints, servo, beam, bellows and elastomeric couplings

We are proud to announce that our 3 Twin Spring Coupling ranges are now also available in T6061 High strength T6 aluminum. We have looked like any good mechanical engineer for ways to save weight but without losing strength or longevity. The artificially aged and precipitation hardening makes this tempered aluminum stronger that 304 Stainless […]

Mechanical power transmission couplings replaces uni joints, jaw couplings, grid couplings too

Spring couplings - flexible coupling replaces universal joints, servo, beam, bellows and elastomeric couplings

Mechanical power transmission couplings by Twin Spring coupling is stronger, runs faster and is more flexible than all other spring couplings. Spring Couplings are another form of flexible shaft coupling but usually down at the lower end of the market, as they usually have a low ability to transfer torque and to run at high […]

Elastomeric couplings – The 2 insert trade offs

Elastomeric Couplings - Twin Spring Coupling components

Elastomeric couplings come in many shapes, sizes and capabilities. Lets break these down into what’s currently available and how they work or don’t work for the average user. So why use Elastomeric couplings then? What’s the options, there are a number of elastomeric type couplings. It depends a lot on what the industry is. Is […]

Elastomeric Couplings – Spider insert flexibility verses Torque

Elastomeric couplings

Elastomeric couplings, Couplings long used in different industries like food, beverage, mining, industrial. The common contaminants factor in their usage such as water, dust makes them the better choice over uni joints. A coupling to avoid breakdown due to contaminants like moisture. These kind of contaminants are problematic with other couplings such as universal joints […]
