Disc Couplings For Accurate Systems
29 October 2012
For highly accurate systems found in industries such as test and measurement, medical, semiconductor, solar, and liquid handling, Ruland offers both single and double disc style couplings. Disc couplings have low inertia and are torsionally stiff making them suitable for precise zero-backlash systems with speeds up to 10,000rpm.
The thin disc springs allow for a substantial amount of misalignment between shafts, while remaining rigid under torque loads. Parallel misalignment is accommodated by the double disc style or by two single disc couplings used in tandem.
Ruland single and double disc couplings are available in both clamp style and set screw style with bore sizes ranging from 3 to 30mm.
