A shaft coupling is a device used to join two shafts for the purpose of transmitting power and/or rotational motion, and may be designed to permit some degree of parallel, axial, or angular misalignment. Typically, shaft couplings do not allow for shaft disconnection during operation; however, certain models with torque limiting capabilities permit slipping or automatic disconnection when a specified torque limit is reached; these devices are also known as “torque limiters”. Selecting and installing the right coupling for the application at hand can provide significant savings through improved performance and reduced downtime and maintenance requirements.
High Performance, High Reliability Shaft Couplings
Miki Pulley’s shaft coupling lineup encompasses solutions for a wide variety of machine applications. Our couplings are engineered for superior performance, using finite element analysis (FEA) paired with decades of power transmission experience. All couplings are rigorously tested for quality, durability, and longevity. We leverage worldwide production and engineering assets to stay abreast of emerging industrial technology and requirements. Our shaft couplings are available in a variety of styles and configurations to provide high precision and operational efficiency.
