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″

 

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 […]

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 […]

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 – 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 […]

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 coupling Uni joints vs Twin Spring Couplings

Lovejoy Uni joints replacements

Lovejoy coupling 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. […]
