Spider Coupling Suppliers In South Africa

These spider/jaw couplings for mechanical power transmission are torsionally flexible shaft couplings, the operating characteristics of which are two hubs with concave claws, transmitting the torque by meshing with an elastic involute gear ring.

What is another name for a spider coupling?

Jaw Coupling

Jaw Coupling: Also known as a spider coupling, this is a common choice with designers as a general flexible coupling, despite the fact that it’s not very flexible. It doesn’t accommodate very large misalignment and it exerts strong reactive forces when two shafts are misaligned.

What is the difference between Oldham and Spider coupling?

In contrast to the Oldham coupling, the torque disk is in shear under torsional loads, and the jaw coupling’s spider operates in compression.

Flexible couplings are usually used to transmit torque from one shaft to another when the two shafts are slightly misaligned. They can accommodate varying degrees of misalignment up to 1.5° and some parallel misalignment. In addition, they can also be used for vibration damping or noise reduction.

In rotating shaft applications a flexible coupling can protect the driving and driven shaft components (such as bearings) from the harmful effects of conditions such as misaligned shafts, vibration, shock loads, and thermal expansion of the shafts or other components. BI carries an extensive range of flexible couplings, including elastomeric and metallic, for all application requirements.
