TSC500 Industrial 5/8″ mechanical power transmission coupling.
A new alternative for universal joints and jaw couplings in any industrial application.
Couplings in an industrial power transmission setup have a number of issues to contend with, annual maintenance, fundamental design flaws coming from a century old technology, industry has evolved but the technology that makes up the standard coupling and universal joint has not.
Twin Spring Coupling TSC500 Industrial offers something different.
Industrial power transmission couplings are broken into two main areas, high speed low angle of misalignment and lower speed higher angle of misalignment. Traditionally these two needs have been service by two different couplings.
Motion control couplings like jaw, elastomeric type couplings and universal joints.
The problem with both couplings are their fundamental design weaknesses, for motion control coupling they can run fast but cannot work at over 4 degrees of misalignment before they start to wear out.
Jaw couplings are only able to flex to 1 degree with a “soft” spider insert like Buna-N or Urethane. Hytrel or Bronze is half that. The spider inserts compress over time and with use so the vibration that it absorbs diminishes over time and will need replacing.
The universal joint can run at more than 4 degrees but needs constant maintenance to keep the bearings and pivot point greased or they too will wear out quickly.
Worn bearings are the main factor in universal joint replacement either the pre lubricated or the greased version. The cheap cost of the bearing cross for most people think its a worthwhile coupling.
Unfortunately the amount of labor involved in regards to monthly maintenance, greasing and eventual replacement means it makes it not as cheap as initially thought.
The other aspect of the bearing cross is the availability of them as well, if they aren’t in stock then the machinery cannot be used until they are replaced.
On top of that they traditionally cannot run over 8 degrees before technical issues like balancing and bearing wear become issues. In a 24/7/365 situation like industrial power transmission that’s going to create interruption and a increased annual maintenance bill.
TSC500 Industrial is different to all other couplings.
Twin Spring Coupling TSC500 Industrial range has no internal components so no annual maintenance and can run at high and low speed as needed.
Our TSC500 Industrial 5/8″ coupling is available in all the standard industry splines for easy replacement or retrofit for OEM.
Flexible up to 25 degrees.
Speeds up to 7000 rpm.
Constructed of either 4140 Alloy or T6061 T6 Aluminum.
