Jaw couplings are power transmitter couplings designed for both general purpose and motion control or servo applications.
Jaw couplings are made from two metallic hubs and an elastomer insert called a spider or an element.
The three parts fit together with a jaw as each hub fits alternatively with the lobes of the spider.
This design creates a flexible and secure connection that can transmit torque while dampening vibrations, protecting components from damage and compensating for any misalignment.
When used with a stiff straight tooth elastomer, this design can also maintain a zero-backlash fit, making it an excellent option for motion control applications that rely on a stop-and-go movement to perform precision tasks.
Jaw couplings are an excellent solution for shock absorption and torque transmission and are available in a range of customisable options to get the best fit for your mechanical or plant engineering application and keep your company moving forward.
