Flexible Coupling compensates the relative deviation of coupling to reduce vibration

Flexible Coupling

The Flexible Coupling has the ability to compensate the relative deviation of the coupling and the buffering and damping performance, and has the impact noise at high speed or when the speed is unstable or often positive and negative. The Flexible Coupling has good cushioning and damping performance when the speed is unstable, has good cushioning and damping performance, and has large bearing capacity. It is suitable for occasions with large speed and load changes, high temperature or low temperature. When the actual load exceeds the predetermined limit load, the insurance link changes, cutting off the movement and power transmission, protecting the rest of the machine from damage, and has the overload protection function, which converts the load start of the machine motor into a similar no-load start.

When disassembling the Flexible Coupling, the connecting bolts are usually removed first. Due to a layer of oil dirt, corrosive products and other deposits deposited on the thread surface, bolts are not easy to disassemble, especially for bolts with serious corrosion. Select a suitable tool to remove the connecting bolt, because the stress surface of the outer hexagon or inner hexagon of the bolt has been damaged by slipping. For bolts with much corrosion or oil stain, the solvent often sprays the connection between bolts and nuts to make the solvent penetrate into the threads. Under normal circumstances, the service life of the Flexible Coupling is determined by the elastic element or the Flexible Coupling accessories.

Elastic Coupling

These problems may occur during the use of the Flexible Coupling. The axial displacement of the gear ring is relatively large, and it can not mesh basically, and some even break the teeth, which has caused great damage to the Flexible Coupling. Pay more attention to the Flexible Coupling to avoid damage due to improper use. The causes of gear wear of Flexible Coupling are basically similar. In addition to being affected by the normal force, the connecting bolts are also subject to additional bending moments, so they are broken. This mainly occurs in the horizontal height difference between the left and right sides of the main shaft of the reducer. The thin diameter, insufficient strength or poor material of the bolts can also cause the bolt to break.

The Flexible Coupling consists of two halves, which are respectively connected with the driving shaft and the driven shaft. Most power engines use Flexible Couplings to connect with the working machine. The shaft drive is usually composed of one or more Flexible Couplings to connect the driving shaft and the driven shaft to form a shaft drive system to transmit rotation or motion. There is a gap between the meshing teeth of the flexible coupling, so the axial movement is allowed. The flexible element flexible coupling adjusts the movement between the equipment shafts by the stretching and bending of similar spring materials. The gasket is usually installed on the middle flange to adjust the spacing, so that the Flexible Coupling will not be overstretched due to the spacing difference.
