Compare your current coupling solution to that of Twin Spring Coupling
There are numerous coupling solutions on the market, Universal Joints, Beam couplings, bellows coupling, L Jaw type and Elastomeric couplings.
All claim they are the best but the technology is the same across the different manufacturers. Each have their advantages in different applications and even the advantage can also come with its own issues, for example a conveyor needs to be able to handle a certain amount of misalignment but universal joint with its increased maintenance of bearings and yokes may make the change uneconomical.
The cost of a mechanical coupling unit may be cheap but when adding the lifetime ROI can turn into being very expensive, constant greasing, constant replacing of worn bearings, constant replacement of urethane spiders in L jaw couplings. These component costs in addition to labor costs turns a cheap coupling into an mechanical coupling with a low ROI

A industry standard that has been in its current form since 1905 making it the oldest flexible coupling solution but it is also one of the most widely used. Made up of 2 hubs and a internal cross joint containing 4 bearings.
Also called a servo or flex coupling, beam couplings are predominately used in the industrial sector or industries where a coupling that only slight misalignment is need to overcome. Examples like motors and motion control are its main uses.
Very similar to beam coupling, it allows for a slightly larger angle of misalignment (but only 1-2 degrees) it also falls into the same marketplace as the beam coupling.
A coupling that has a specific use, it is a coupling that if it fails will keep running, without damage to equipment until it can be replaced it also can only run at up to 2 degrees out of alignment. It is mainly used as its components dont need maintenance and keeps working if its internal insert fails. Made up of 2 hubs and internal “spider” to absorb shock and misalignment, which means the more the misalignment the quicker it wears.
These constitute over 97% of the coupling marketplace and close to 99% of the ‘common” flexible couplings units (Elastomeric is another but normally falls into the jaw type coupling since it required little maintenance but traditionally they are very large couplings and are used in only very specific applications)
