OEM Factory Supplied High Precision Machining Metal Jaw/Clamp/Gear Coupling
Coupling refers to a device that connects 2 shafts or shafts and rotating parts, rotates together during the transmission of motion and power, and does not disengage under normal conditions. Sometimes it is also used
as a safety device to prevent the connected parts from bearing excessive load, which plays the role of overload protection.
Couplings can be divided into rigid couplings and flexible couplings. Rigid couplings do not have buffering property and the ability to compensate the relative displacement of 2 axes. It is required that the 2 axes be strictly aligned. However, such couplings are simple in structure, low in manufacturing cost, convenient in assembly and disassembly, and maintenance, which can ensure that the 2 axes are relatively neutral, have large transmission torque, and are widely used. Commonly used are flange coupling, sleeve coupling and jacket coupling.
Flexible coupling can also be divided into flexible coupling without elastic element and flexible coupling with elastic element. The former type only has the ability to compensate the relative displacement of 2 axes, but cannot cushion and reduce vibration. Common types include slider coupling, gear coupling, universal coupling and chain coupling; The latter type contains elastic elements. In addition to the ability to compensate the relative displacement of 2 axes, it also has the functions of buffering and vibration reduction.
Our leading mainly including universal couplings, drum gear couplings, elastic couplings etc.
Main production equipments:
Large lathe, surface grinder, milling machine, spline milling machine, horizontal broaching machine, gear hobbing machine, shaper, slotting machine, bench drilling machine, radial drilling machine, boring machine, band sawing machine, horizontal lathe, end milling machine, crankshaft grinder, CNC milling machine, etc.
1) Mobility. The movability of the coupling refers to the ability to compensate the relative displacement of 2 rotating components. Factors such as manufacturing and installation errors between connected components, temperature changes during operation and deformation under load all put CZPT requirements for mobility. The movable performance compensates or alleviates the additional load between shafts, bearings, couplings and other components caused by the relative displacement between rotating components.
(2) Buffering. For the occasions where the load is often started or the working load changes, the coupling shall be equipped with elastic elements that play the role of cushioning and vibration reduction to protect the prime mover and the working machine from little or no damage.
(3) Safe, reliable, with sufficient strength and service life.
(4) Simple structure, easy to assemble, disassemble and maintain.
Dynamic balance tester, high-speed intelligent carbon and sulfur analyzer, Blochon optical hardness tester, Leeb hardness tester, magnetic yoke flaw detector etc.
It is widely used in metallurgical steel rolling, wind power, hydropower, mining, engineering machinery, petrochemical, lifting, paper making, rubber, rail transit, shipbuilding and marine engineering and other industries.
How to select the appropriate coupling type
The following items should be considered when selecting the coupling type.
1. The size and nature of the required transmission torque, the requirements for buffering and damping functions, and whether resonance may occur.
2. The relative displacement of the axes of the 2 shafts is caused by manufacturing and assembly errors, shaft load and thermal expansion deformation, and relative movement between components.
3. Permissible overall dimensions and installation methods, and necessary operating space for assembly, adjustment and maintenance. For large couplings, they should be able to be disassembled without axial movement of the shaft.
In addition, the working environment, service life, lubrication, sealing, economy and other conditions should also be considered, and a suitable coupling type should be selected by referring to the characteristics of various couplings.

Are There Any Safety Considerations When Using Gear Couplings in Rotating Machinery?
Yes, there are several safety considerations to keep in mind when using gear couplings in rotating machinery:
- Guarding: It is essential to provide adequate guarding around gear couplings and other rotating parts to prevent accidental contact with moving components. Proper guarding helps protect personnel from potential entanglement, pinch points, or other hazards.
- Maintenance and Inspection: Regular maintenance and inspection of gear couplings are critical to ensure their safe and reliable operation. This includes checking for signs of wear, lubrication levels, and any abnormalities in the coupling's performance.
- Lubrication: Proper lubrication of the gear coupling is essential to reduce friction, wear, and heat generation. Follow the manufacturer's guidelines for lubrication intervals and use the recommended lubricant type.
- Temperature Monitoring: In high-speed or high-temperature applications, it is advisable to monitor the temperature of the gear coupling during operation. Excessive heat can indicate issues with lubrication or alignment that need immediate attention.
- Alignment: Ensure proper alignment of the connected shafts and gear coupling during installation. Misalignment can lead to increased wear, vibration, and premature failure of the coupling.
- Torque and Speed Limitations: Adhere to the specified torque and speed limitations provided by the gear coupling manufacturer. Operating the coupling beyond its rated capacity can result in failures and safety hazards.
- Emergency Shutdown: Machinery equipped with gear couplings should have an accessible and effective emergency shutdown mechanism to quickly stop the equipment in case of emergencies.
- Training: Provide proper training to personnel who work with or around machinery equipped with gear couplings. Training should cover safety protocols, coupling maintenance procedures, and the potential hazards associated with the equipment.
- Replace Damaged Couplings: If a gear coupling shows signs of damage, excessive wear, or malfunction, it should be replaced promptly to prevent potential accidents or equipment breakdowns.
Following these safety considerations can help ensure the safe and efficient operation of rotating machinery equipped with gear couplings. Regular maintenance, adherence to safety guidelines, and proper training contribute to a safer working environment and prolong the service life of gear couplings and the connected equipment.
