Mechanical Couplings
Couplings are used to join two shafts Rigid couplings are simple and low cost. But they demand almost perfect alignment of the mating shafts. Misalignment causes undue forces and accelerated wear on the shafts, coupling, shaft bearings, or machine housing.

It comes from such sources as bearing wear. thermal expansion. When misalignment is expected. structural deflection. . misalignment is the rule rather than the exception. or settling machine foundations. a flexible coupling must be used.Mechanical Couplings In connecting two shafts.

Mechanical Couplings Selection factors include: y Amount of torque (or power & speed) y Shaft Size y Misalignment tolerance .
