High speed power transmission flexible shaft couplings – couplings, beam and elastomeric can only run at 4° misalignment before they cause equipment failure through increased vibration and the general failure of the couplings themselves, Twin Spring’s Coupling can run at high speed and high torque and still be torsionally rigid at 15°, meaning less downtime for flexible coupling replacement and less wear and tear on belts, shafts and other components.

Best Industrial power transmission couplings

Best Industrial power transmission couplings for 2021 The best industrial power transmission couplings for the mass industrial market are broken roughly into these 5 types of couplings, some have subsets as well, the elastomeric couplings have jaw couplings as segment where some people treat them as a category by themselves. These couplings are also constructed […]

Jaw Couplings vs Twin Spring Coupling

Jaw Couplings vs Twin Spring Coupling Jaw coupling is an elastomeric coupling used in a number of different industries, Industrial, distribution, agriculture to power servo motors, pumps or other motors. The Jaw coupling is made up of 3 pieces, a input hub, a insert to absorb shock/vibration (there are 4 types of spider inserts SOX […]

Universal joints by Ruland vs Twin Spring flexible shaft coupling

Ruland Universal joints Ruland universal joints like all universal joint manufacturers all revolve around the same design, so all u joints are the same, some of the internal components are different, the hubs can be made stronger but that also increases the price. The universal joint is all the same whether a friction bearing block […]

Lovejoy Universal joint couplings verses Twin Spring Coupling flexible shaft couplings

Lovejoy universal joints The flexible shaft coupling we will discuss today is the universal joint. Originally invented in the 1683 by Robert Hooke the Hooke joint became the universal joint when patented in 1905 by Clarence Spicer. The Spicer joint then with Spicer’s business partner Charles Dana turned into the current day Dana Holdings. Lovejoy […]

Happy holidays and happy new year

Twin Spring Coupling producers of the revolutionary hybrid mechanical power transmission couplings would like to wish you all a happy holiday season and a joyous new year. Here’s hoping that 2021 is a better year for us all. We are going to be making some announcements in early January about a design change for our […]

Flexible shaft coupling TSC300 replaces BOTH Universal Joints and Jaw Type couplings

Twin Spring Coupling TSC300– Flexible shaft coupling to replace U joints & Jaw couplings The Twin Spring Coupling offers the following advantages over a Universal joint or a L Jaw type coupling. No internal components that need to be greased and replaced when worn Flexible to 35° One-piece design so no bearing kits to replace, […]

Coupling Solutions for Industrial power transmission coupling failures

Replace Lovejoy Universal Joints, Jaw Type couplings and other couplings like Beam and Bellows  With the 24/7 demands on industrial couplings especially now with the COVID 19 virus meaning less service people and OEM MRO supplies are available, the service manager of these industrial companies have decisions to make. How do I get the most […]

Covid 19 and coupling maintenance

Less people means less coupling maintenance means more breakdowns In times of crisis like we are living through now we have less people to do the work that needs to be done as most people are at home trying to steer clear of contracting or worse spreading the Covid 19 virus. This included maintenance of […]

The true cost of universal joints

The true cost of universal joints are not so simple, a low initial price but with ongoing maintenance means it becomes a lot more expensive Lets face it, its an old technology, 115 years old to be exact, the first use of the word by inventor Robert Hooke in 1676 shows the coupling is far […]

Spring’s here – its universal joint maintenance time.

Universal Joint and power transmission couplings So the weather is changing, the short cold days of winter are starting to recede. Now is the time of the service manager starting to his maintenance schedule for plant and equipment. Couplings come into play here as the constant greasing of universal joints and replacement of worn bearings/yokes […]
