flexible coupling

flexible coupling

[‚flek·sə·bəl ′kəp·liŋ]
(electromagnetism)
A coupling designed to allow a limited angular movement between the axes of two waveguides.
(mechanical engineering)
A coupling used to connect two shafts and to accommodate their misalignment.

flexible coupling

A coupling, used in rotating machinery, having high transverse or torsional compliance.

The crusher is driven directly via a flexible coupling to the electric drive motor, eliminating the need for sheaves and v-belts and allowing for simplified operation and maintenance.
An extended flexible coupling, the SilverBack XL is a trenchless product that will serve as a useful tool for municipalities and underground contractors to create --permanent, strong pipe connections.
The modular assembly allows many designs-for example, with a hollow shaft, with a flexible coupling, with an additional safety clutch for torque limiting, or with two individual brakes.
A main component that helps keep the "spin" in wind turbines is the flexible coupling. Flexible couplings connect rotating members while allowing misalignment in the angular or parallel offset orientation.
In the case where the flexible coupling does not have to assume misalignment of the coupled shafts, the stresses caused by the torque transmission, centrifugal loading and the disks' circumference displacement do not have dangerous values at any node of the structure.
During a 28-day special inspection, Petty Officer Wright was inspecting the flexible coupling of the engine's output shaft for cracks.
They are Flexible Coupling Alignment, Steadyrest Alignment and Horizontal Boring Mill Alignment.
The X Series stainless steel, flexible coupling is designed to meet the exacting positioning requirements of servo motor applications.
The flexible coupling permits a limited amount of linear and angular movement at the pipe joint to accommodate expansion, contraction and deflection.
Custom units, such as flexible coupling drive shafts, are illustrated and described.
The hydraulic pump is attached to the rengine via a bell housing and flexible coupling. One pump powers a hydraulic motor, through an in-line planetary gearbox, to the capstan while the second pump drives the rope take-up drum through a hydraulic motor.The hydraulic oil tank is fitted with double filtration protection, sight glass and filler/breather.The rope take-up drum is removable and can be split to enable rope removal.
