How flexible is your supplier of shaft couplings?

How flexible is your supplier of shaft couplings?Any coupling manufacturer can provide a range of bores sizes within its ranges of shaft coupling ranges. After all, this is the essence of the generic products adaptability. However, the list of suppliers probably starts to shrink dramatically when you require small adaptations to the standard range of shaft couplings. Then, when more thought and attention is required to determine how the shaft coupling performs and physically connects to the application, help is harder to find.

Abssac says its helical beam shaft couplings take the hassle out of connecting drive shafts. Commonly used to transmit rotation from one shaft to another, the coupling's simplistic single-piece construction eliminates any form of friction wear during operation, while also ensuring zero backlash and no loss of torque during operation.

The company's range of standard products cater for shaft sizes from 1mm up to 50mm. Moreover, adapting the standard product to a bespoke design is straightforward and common practice for Abssac. In fact the helical beam coupling can serve the design engineer a whole lot more. End attachments such as splines, gears, timing belts, clutches and threaded bores can also be added to the basic design. Another string to the bow is the product's capability to utilise a single-, double- or triple-beam configuration to change torsional and torque capabilities while maintaining the same physical dimensions.

Abssac takes the time to identify the functionality of the coupling and often amalgamates different parts of the working design into the single-part shaft coupling.

Stacey Taylor at Abssac comments: "Many of our customers are now on fifth-revision shaft coupling designs, as we move and evolve with their product development."
