An extensive range of standard and customized couplings are available for use in power-transmission applications. The couplings, combined with a wide range of sizes and bores, allow the mechanical connection of two rotating shafts so power can be transmitted from one shaft to the other. They also compensate for shaft misalignment that could adversely affect velocity and acceleration of the driven shaft. Standard couplings include jaw, grid, gear, flex, FRC, rigid, and universal joints.
