The Solution for High-Speed Applications

At high rotational speeds, special considerations must be made for the design and manufacturing quality of a coupling, as any inaccuracies in machining and balancing become magnified as velocity increases. A high level of concentricity is crucial to ensure smooth and precise transmission of the rotary motion.

Couplings also need to be able to withstand high levels of torsional strain from acceleration and occasional shock loading in these applications.  The compensating buffer and wear resistance of the elastomer are important to ensuring reliable performance of the complete system.
