Flexible couplings

It is a well-known fact that the connection of shafts is a lengthy, and therefore costly, operation of accurately aligning the respective machine parts. With machine base plates and foundations made of sectional steel there is the additional need to compensate for the misalignment of individual components caused by the tightening of the fastening screws. Variations in heat expansion and sudden alterations of the foundation level can cause further problems to the mounting operation.

Even more serious are the failures from incorrectly mounted flexible couplings – under the influence of torque the radial forces produced by the displacement can result in overloaded bearings, excessive hest in the friction bearings, and broken shafts.

However, by using a TAS flexible coupling for shafts, excessive costs for fitting, loss of production and repair can be avoided.
