Rigid Clamp Couplings
Rigid clamp couplings join or align two shafts to create a permanent joint. These shaft coupling options are used mostly in transmissions, and offer greater torque capacity, while minimizing shaft and equipment damage. Conversely, a flexible coupling is a sleeve that actually flexes at the joint, to help absorb vibrations. This type of flex coupling is typically seen in the power transmission industry and heavy machinery. Shaft collars are used to hold bearings and sprockets tightly on the shaft, and are used in motor and gearbox assemblies. We also carry a wide variety of shaft couplings and grid couplings.
