Shaft Couplings accommodate misaligned shaft positions.
Electronic Components & Devices

Shaft Couplings accommodate misaligned shaft positions.

Featuring low-backlash design, Schmidt 5D Couplings simplify adjustment to any misaligned shaft position without imposing heavy side loads on machinery. They accommodate up to 5° angular misalignment and as high as 1.5 in. parallel misalignment while maintaining undisturbed power transmission at constant angular velocity. Mounted to shaft hubs or to machine flanges, units are available in...
