Presentation Description

Flexible couplings are used to transfer the torque from one axis to the next if the two axes are slightly misaligned. Flexible coupling can prevent fluctuation misalignment up to 3 ° and some parallel misalignment. It can also be used to dampen vibrations or reduce noise. Coupling to allow limited precise movement between the axis of the two wave-guides.

Title:- Flexible Coupling Flexible couplings are used to transfer the torque from one axis to the next if the two axes are slightly misaligned. Flexible coupling can prevent fluctuation misalignment up to 3 ° and some parallel misalignment. It can also be used to dampen vibrations or reduce noise. Coupling to allow limited precise movement between the axis of the two waveguides. Why Flexible Coupling There are flexible couplings to transfer control torque from one axis to the next. To compensate for some misalignment measurements in certain cases it provides protection. Therefore industrial power transmission regularly requires adaptability unlike rigid coupling. When the opportunity arises to replace flexible couplings it is human in nature to take a simple path and find the same way to compare with a failed coupling. Moderate but this training welcomes the disappointing or expensive system damage that is repeated too often. The smartest methodology first assumes that the last coupling failed considering the fact that it was the wrong type for that application. Even if you check previous designs it is good to take the time to decide the right type of coupling. But it can lead to something very surprising that can work better and last longer. In summary flexible couplings are used to transfer the torque from one axis to another if the two axes are slightly misaligned. In this example the test device is using a torque transducer as a torque sensor for torque measurement. In the given example flexible couplings are used to connect the motor and torque sensor to the work- piece. These two couplings should minimize alignment errors because the torque sensor must be as flat as possible. In addition the sensor must be protected against overloads. The main characteristics of flexible couplings are very low or zero clearance excellent lateral and angular misalignment good torsional rigidity suitable for various applications.

Estimation and Selection:- A variety of flexible and accessible couplings offers a wide range of performance compensation. When choosing between them oppose the compulsion to exaggerate the administrative factor. The coupling management elements plan to complement the various typical torque loads of various drive systems and accommodate the life of the coupling. Choosing it in moderation can confuse your choice. The insignificant dimensions increase the coupling costs and aggravate the damages in other parts of the system. If the system is overloaded malfunctions or does not meet the specifications correctly selected couplings should not break more frequently before progressively expensive operations. To determine the correct type of adaptive coupling you should profile its application as follows • Electric motors of main engines diesel engines etc. • The actual torque requirements for certain aspects of the system unlike the nominal power of the main motor: periodic or irregular loads start loads in the "worst case" and start switching behavior basic measurements during normal operation • Linear and torsional vibration • Shaft size keyway size and desired fit between shaft and hole • Misalignment between axes • Shafts movements input / output distances and other restrictions related to space. • Environmental conditions In any case even after identifying these basic professional details other selection criteria should be considered. Is it the idea of meeting or the simplicity of the establishment Are maintenance problems such as lubrication or periodic review appropriate Are field elements replaceable Or do I have to replace the entire coupling in case of disappointment How well is the coupling structure inherent in the speed of a particular application Is there a recoil or free play between the coupling parts Can the equipment withstand the reactive load caused by the coupling due to misalignment Each flexible coupling configuration has quality and disadvantages and associated advantages and disadvantages. The key is to find the best structure for your application and budget. Application:- • Initially flexible couplings are separated into two mandatory groups: metallic and elastic. • Metal types use parts that are not bent slid or freely aligned with each other. • Elastomer types gain flexibility with elastic stationary or plastic elastic elements that in turn transfer the torque between the metal cubes.
