Drive couplings are power transmission components used to couple the shafts of various mechanical devices, and to compensate for shaft misalignment, reducing stress on shafts and bearings. Jaw, double loop, Oldham, and servo-application couplings are available.
It is very common to see rotating shafts on industrial machinery. Oftentimes these are misaligned as it is nearly impossible to make a perfect alignment when coupling two shafts together. Drive couplings can be used to couple the shafts of various mechanical devices and to compensate for shaft misalignment, reducing stress on shafts and bearings.
SIM and SureMotion drive couplings are available in a range of styles and sizes to meet shaft coupling needs.

Jaw-style drive couplings are popular and cost-effective components for low-inertia applications. Choose spiders of specific durometers for different degrees of shock and vibration reduction.
Oldham drive couplings are designed for applications where high axial misalignment exists, acting as a mechanical fuse to prevent damage to other components in over-torque conditions. Select a torque disc to match the coupling size.
Servo beam drive couplings are designed for high-speed servo applications, offering the flexibility of bellows couplings plus torsional stiffness, zero backlash and the strength of disc couplings.
Servo high-gain drive couplings are designed for high-speed servo and stepper applications, offering zero backlash, increased control gain, high durability and a wide torque range.
Outstanding resistance to acids, alkalis, solvents, oils, grease, ozone.
