Couplings connect parallel offset shafts.

Press Release Summary:




Schmidt Offset Couplings are suited for parallel offset shaft applications where misalignments may be encountered. Products impose no sideloads on shafts or bearings and eliminate radial shaft vibration. Increasing offset distance does not result in performance loss. Available for shaft displacements of 0.156-17.29 in. and torque capacities from 55-459,000 in.-lbs, couplings maintain undisturbed power transmission at constant angular velocity.

Plymouth, Minnesota: Schmidt Offset Couplings from Zero-Max are designed for large parallel offset shaft applications where possible damaging sideloads or misalignments may be encountered. They impose no sideloads on the shafts or bearings and eliminate radial shaft vibration. There is no performance loss for increasing the offset distance.

Available for shaft displacements of 0.156 inches to 17.29 inches and torque capacities from 55 to 459,000 inch-pounds, Schmidt Offset Couplings are designed for printing, paper conversion, robotic, electronic, optical and business machine applications.

Designed to provide flexibility in shaft displacement, Schmidt Offset Couplings maintain undisturbed power transmission at constant angular velocity. Most important, they provide a smooth, quiet flow of power for maximum system torque and performance because of their clean, dynamic offset design.

Additional features include: space-saving design; no performance loss by increasing shaft offset; coupling can be mounted to shaft hubs or directly to existing machine flanges -- no need to reposition either shaft being coupled; several different models and specials to handle a wide range of applications.
