Zero-Max's Schmidt 5D Couplings handle axial, angular and parallel shaft misalignments
Schmidt 5D Couplings from Zero-Max are well suited for applications requiring large axial, angular and parallel shaft misalignments. This “all-in-one” coupling design will handle all shaft displacements, providing low backlash for precision high-torque applications.
The coupling can accommodate up to five degrees of angular misalignment and 1.5-inch parallel misalignment while maintaining undisturbed power transmission at constant angular velocity. Acting forces within the coupling can be calculated, assuring reliable, trouble-free system operation.
Couplings can be mounted to shaft hubs or mounted directly to existing machine flanges. Schmidt 5D Couplings are available in standard and inverted hub configurations in bore sizes from 1.500 inches to 6.375 inches (38 millimeters to 160 millimeters). The ten different model sizes handle speeds up to 1000 RPM and torque from 2800 to 500,000 in-lbs. Special design modifications are available.
