Chain couplings: little maintenance, more power
Chain couplings are suitable for elastic torque transmission over a wide speed range. They are powerful, effective and robust e. g. as to higher temperatures and slight angle or parallel displacement.
Furthermore, they are low-maintenance products, they are easy to separate by merely opening the coupling chain, and they offer an excellent cost / performance ratio for numerous applications in machine and plant construction. The wide application range is due to the numerous coupling sizes that can be supplied.
Mounting of the special coupling sprockets with hardened toothing is carried out inversely on the two opposite shaft extensions. However, certain stipulated requirements as to angle deviation and parallel displacement have to be met. The coupling chain – a measured duplex roller chain according to ISO 606 – is placed around the toothing of the two sprockets and closed by means of a connecting link.
