Efficient power transmission and driveline component durability are among powertrain designers’ most important concerns. Increased durability and up-time are two characteristics demanded by purchasers of today’s complex and expensive machinery. These demands can only be met with reliable, trouble-free, smooth-running powertrains free from damaging loads which compromise component life.
(45) For Low Frequency Vibration Isolation and Misalignment Accommodation Compact, one-piece flexible couplings economically constructed to isolate low frequency vibration and accommodate multi-directional misalignment.
Elastomeric bushing-type couplings accommodate misalignment, cushion torsional shock, and do not generate or transmit noise. Since relative motion is taken in the elastomer rather than sliding metal surfaces, no lubricant is involved or ever required. Dirt and grit cannot effect the coupling bushings. The elastomer has been compounded to provide long service life.
