Curved Jaw Type CJ CJ-1 Curved Jaw Type Curved Jaw Couplings From Lovejoy CJ Introduction For over 100 years Lovejoy Inc. has set the standard for straight jaw couplings in the United States and around the world. Now, Lovejoy Inc. is proud to present the CJ and GS Series, a full line of curved jaw products for the world market. The CJ Series curved jaw coupling provides highly reliable service for light, medium, and heavy duty electrical motor and internal gas combustion engine applications. The GS Series provides a coupling solution for the motion control industry This product offering will continue Lovejoy's long history of being the world's premier coupling supplier. The Curved Jaw Design The three-piece design incorporates a radial curvature to the jaw face and both radial and axial curvature (crowning) to the elastomer (spider). The curved jaw hubs are offered in sintered iron, steel, aluminum, cast and nodular iron materials. The CJ Series curved jaw coupling and the variety of urethane elements allows for angular, parallel, and axial misalignment. The simplicity of the three-piece design makes it easy to assemble. Unlike some metallic coupling designs, the CJ Series design requires no lubrication. When assembled, the CJ Series offers no metal to metal contact of parts. The elastomer in compression design offers the benefit of continuing to function even after the elastomeric element fails (fail-safe design). The torque range of the CJ Series product is 67 to 247.800 in-lbs. Lovejoy offers the CJ Series in a range of product with finished stock metric bores and keyways for sizes 14 through 75/90. Sizes 100-180 are also available with metric bores on a made-to-order basis. Elastomers (spider materials) Lovejoy offers four types of spiders for the CJ Series curved jaw coupling product line. Urethane spiders provide high abrasion resistance and elasticity, along with good damping characteristics. The spiders are offered in a variety of shore hardnesses, each providing a different level of torque capacity, damping, and chemical resistance. The 92 shore spider (white or yellow) is standard, offering excellent torque carrying capacity. The 80 shore spider (blue) offers the best damping characteristics. The 95/98 shore spider (red) offers the highest torque carrying capacity. The 64 shore spider (green) is offered for high humidity environments. The standard spiders also feature an open center to accommodate small between shaft end measurements. All standard spiders have a rated temperature capacity of 212 °C. (See page 12 for GS spider temperature ratings.) The urethane material also resists oil, dirt, sand, grease, moisture, many solvents, as well as the atmospheric effects of ozone.

Make sure that the spider/coupling size values are larger than the application values. Step 6: Once the size is selected using the torque values, check the table on page CJ-6 to make sure the bore size needed will fit in the coupling. Step 7: Double check the overall dimensions of the coupling to ensure that it will fit in the space allowed for the coupling in the application. in-lbs = Tkn = HPx63025 rpm Step 2: Calculate your Application Service Factor using the charts below. The total Service Factor (K) will be: K = K1 x K2 x K3 Step 3: Calculate the design torque (DTkmax) of your application. Design Torque (DTkmax) = Nominal Torque x service factor. Step 4: Using the Elastomer performance data charts on pages CJ-4 & CJ-5 select the urethane shore hardness which best corresponds to your relative damping needs in the application. Application Service Factor for Starts per Hour (K2) Application Service Factor (K1) Application Service Factor Uniform operation with small masses to be accelerated. Hydraulic and centrifugal pumps, light generators, blowers, fans, ventilators, belt/screw conveyors. Uniform operation with medium masses to be accelerated. Sheet metal bending machines, wood working machines, mills, textile machines, mixers. Irregular operation, with medium masses to be accelerated. Rotating ovens, printing presses, generators, shredders, winders, spinning machines, pumps for viscous fluids. Irregular operation and shocks, with medium masses to be accelerated Concrete mixers, drop hammers, cable cars, paper mills, compression pumps, propeller pumps, rope winders, centrifuges. Irregular operation and very heavy shocks, with large masses to be accelerated. Excavators, hammer mills, piston pumps, presses, rotary boring machines, shears, forge presses, stone crushers. Irregular operation and very heavy shocks, with very large masses to be accelerated. Piston type compressors and pumps without speed variations, heavy roll sets, welding machines, brick presses, stone crushers. *This selection process is based on application factors only. A selection process is also available using DIN 740 part 2 standard. Consult with Lovejoy Engineering for details.

Careful installation (i.e. alignment) and periodic inspection should be provided to provide the optimum life of the coupling. Special consideration should be given as to the position of the shafts and the amount of axial movement the coupling will be exposed to. The more accurate the alignment of the coupling, will result in greater life of the elastomer. A coupling guard and rotating equipment safety procedures should always be followed.

CJ-11 Curved Jaw Type CJ Technical Description For The GS Series The GS Series curved jaw coupling offers zero backlash capability in a 3-piece design. The coupling is provided assembled under prestress. The GS Series can be used in a variety of different applications requiring precision and accuracy. The GS Series spider features a straight center of the spider tooth, providing higher stiffness due to coupling prestress. The crowning of the ends of the spider legs allows for misalignment, while the curved jaws and solid spider center provide high-speed capability. The jaws of the hubs and the spider legs are chamfered to provide easy assembly. The GS Series coupling design also allows the blind assembly in tight spaces. Raised spider dots on the legs of the spider ensure proper spacing of hubs and spider. Proper installation of the coupling can provide isolation of electrical currents. Check the CL dimension listed on page 19 to ensure the proper spacing between spiders and hubs. The GS Series coupling has spiders available in four different shore hardnesses. Each spider offers benefits for different vibratory, environmental, and torque transmission requirements.

The low torques of these applications gives the GS Series the ability to provide zero backlash due to the elastomer pre-stress. Servo And Positioning Drives Main Spindle Drives The GS Series coupling is used in main spindle drives for machine tools. Torque spikes and cyclical loading are handled by the GS Series by damping or by shifting the vibratory frequency range to a non-critical speed range.

An added benefit of the GS Series is its damping capabilities. For applications that have vibrations at critical speeds, the GS Series coupling can provide a zero backlash solution for vibration problems.

CJ-16 Curved Jaw Type GS Series Misalignment Information The GS Series coupling handles the following types of misalignment: axial, angular, and radial. The coupling retains its zero backlash properties due to its spider design. GS Series Misalignment Table Misalignment Axial misalignment can be caused by different shaft tolerances or by thermal expansion of shafts. The GS Series coupling handles axial misalignment while keeping reactionary forces low. Size 14 19 Radial Misalignment Kr Radial misalignment can be defined as a measure of the offset distance between the centerlines of the driving and driven shafts. This type of misalignment, due to the forces involved, causes the highest stress. 24 28 38 Angular Misalignment Angular misalignment can be defined as a measure of the angle between the centerlines of the driving and driven shafts, where those centerlines would intersect approximately halfway between shaft ends. The GS Series coupling can handle a specific amount of angular misalignment for each given size (refer to chart on right). 42 48 55 65 95 Axial +0.039 -0.019 +0.047 -0.019 +0.055 -0.019 +0.059 -0.027 +0.070 -0.027 +0.078 -0.039 +0.082 -0.039 +0.086 -0.039 +0.102 -0.039 Radial 0.008 0.006 0.003 0.002 0.006 0.004 0.002 0.001 0.005 0.004 0.003 0.006 0.004 0.003 0.007 0.005 0.003 0.007 0.005 0.004 0.009 0.006 0.004 0.009 0.007 0.005 Angular 1,1 1,0 0,9 0,8 1,1 1,0 0,9 0,8 1,0 0,9 0,8 1,0 0,9 0,8 1,0 0,9 0,8 1,0 0,9 0,8 1,0 0,9 0,8 1,0 0,9 0,8 0.007 0,9 CJ-17 CJ Axial Misalignment Spider shore 80 92 98 64 80 92 98 64 92 98 64 92 98 64 92 98 64 92 98 64 92 98 64 92 98 64
