Flexible Couplings and its Applications

by Smriti G. Technical Consultant

flexible coupling exists to transmit control (torque) starting with one shaft then onto the next; to make up for minor measures of misalignment; and, in specific cases, to give protective functions.

Thus, industrial power transmission regularly calls for adaptable as opposed to rigid couplings.

Keep in mind that each flexible coupling configuration has qualities and shortcomings and related tradeoffs. The key is to discover the structure most appropriate to your application and budget.


At first, flexible couplings separate into two essential groups, metallic and elastomeric.

Metallic types utilize freely fitted parts that roll or slide against one another or, on the other hand, non-moving parts that bend to take up misalignment.

Elastomeric types, then again, gain flexibility from resilient, non-moving, elastic or plastic elements transmitting torque between metallic hubs.
