Shaft misalignment can limit the performance of machines, cause excessive wear, and often lead to premature failure. Flexible shaft couplings can help prevent these issues by transmitting torque while also accommodating for parallel, axial, and angular misalignment between drive components. High performance flexible shaft couplings can also reduce vibration, dampen noise, and protect drive shaft components from overload. Flexible shaft couplings handle large misalignments without causing high radial stress and perform better than rigid couplings in high-performance applications. EPT also offers flexible shaft couplings that do not require lubrication, creating a virtually maintenance-free solution for motion control applications.
