Zero-Backlash Shaft Couplings

Candy Coup-Link features a complete line of zero-backlash shaft couplings for precise, high-speed automation applications. The line includes Beam, Bellows, Curved Jaw, Disc, Encoder, Oldham and Rigid type couplings, each with different inertia, misalignment and torsional rigidity characteristics to suit motion control applications that require accurate, repeatable transmission of torque and position. Coup-Link can help improve productivity by reducing maintenance time and costs while extending the life of more valuable machine components.

Not all couplings are created equal. A seemingly simple component in the drive chain, couplings are integral in keeping operations moving. Couplings must be able to contend with the performance requirements of the application. In addition to speed and torque transmission, misalignment among connecting shafts must be considered, among other conditions. Enter flexible-shaft couplings. While their rigid counterparts are specified when precise alignment is required, flexible couplings are employed when axes are at a slight angle or slightly displaced, either as a result of tolerance build up or the rigors of operations, including bearing wear or structural deflection.
