Industrial power transmission coupling entail couplings like uni joints, jaw couplings.

Traditionally used at high speed but with minimal angular misalignment in applications like conveyor belts and other industrial machinery. They have their limitations, uni joints bearings and block and pin need to be greased and replaced, and increased misalignment during use also wears out bearings but also spider inserts found in jaw couplings.

Twin Spring Coupling offers a high speed, high torque and highly flexible industrial coupling to replace uni joints and jaw couplings. Size shafts range from 1/2″ to 1 3/4″

 

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 […]

Spring Couplings – Different coupling types using springs, replaces uni joints and jaw couplings too

Spring couplings - flexible coupling replaces universal joints, servo, beam, bellows and elastomeric 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 speeds, so they normally aren’t considered to replace couplings like uni joints or jaw couplings. Spring couplings have one thing in […]

Elastomeric Couplings – Spider insert flexibility verses Torque

Elastomeric couplings

Elastomeric 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. These kind of contaminants are problematic with other couplings such as universal joints due to the bearings used to make these coupling flexible failing […]

Best Industrial power transmission couplings for 2021

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 […]

Lovejoy Uni joints vs Twin Spring Couplings

Lovejoy Uni joints replacements

Lovejoy uni 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 […]
