SKF offers an extensive range of standard and customized couplings engineered for high performance and reliability in power transmission applications. A wide variety of coupling types combined with a wide range of sizes and bores equips users with suitable solutions to mechanically connect two rotating shafts and transmit power from one shaft to the other. They additionally can compensate for shaft misalignment that otherwise could adversely affect velocity and acceleration of the driven shaft.
The couplings join a growing portfolio of SKF power transmission products delivering optimized performance and long service life for equipment in the food and beverage, mining and cement, metal forming, and steel industries, among many others. The standard SKF coupling product line includes jaw, grid, gear, flex, FRC, rigid, and universal joints for quick and easy mounting directly on the shaft or using various compatible bushings or weld-on hubs.
For heavy-duty applications, large-size couplings can be supplied to provide optimum contact with shafts, accommodate high torque values, reduce power loss, and minimize the effects of misalignment. All SKF couplings benefit from proven designs and materials to withstand vibration and shock loads encountered in most motor, turbine, or engine-driven applications. Customized coupling products, supported by more than 100 years of SKF power transmission industry knowledge, can be developed to satisfy the most demanding or specialized application requirements.
