Shaft Couplings & Brakes for Passenger Terminal Equipment

The airport and public transportation industries utilize a wide range of equipment requiring accurate, reliable motion control to ensure proper performance and passenger safety.

Miki Pulley designs and manufactures high-precision motion control solutions for numerous public transportation applications. We help transportation industry OEMs solve mechanical challenges with standard and customized shaft couplings and brakes engineered for durability, low maintenance, and long-lasting performance.

Shaft Couplings & Brakes for Transportation Applications

Shaft Couplings & Brakes for Transportation Applications

In the above example, a Miki Pulley ALS shaft coupling and 111 model actuated brake are used in a subway terminal turnstile. Shaft couplings and brakes work together to provide dependable performance and long working life, which is important for high-repetition, constant-use applications.

Reduce Vibration with Low Backlash Shaft Couplings

Jaw and spider couplings provide a cost-effective, easy-to-install method of connecting two shafts in any transportation equipment. This simple, jaw-type coupling offers quiet operation, minimal backlash, and more than ample precision for the task at hand.
Our Jaw & Spider shaft couplings absorb vibration and shock, and transmit more than twice the torque of our competitors’ couplings. Choose from models with curved jaw and straight jaw profiles and three spider elastomer options to meet your torque, torsional stiffness, and misalignment capacity requirements.
