OMEGA JAW shaft couplings are available in steel, cast iron and aluminium and can come with other requested materialst to suit shaft sizes from 6mm to 100mm or supplied pilot bored. These are low cost, no fuss shaft couplings.
The curved jaw coupling design consists of an elastic Ã¢â‚¬Å“spiderÃ¢â‚¬ and two hubs. The spider, made of an advanced polyurethane material, provides dampening of impulse loads, minimizing shock to the motor and other sensitive equipment. These spiders allow the user to customize the jaw couplingÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s performance. Selecting a soft spider will give the jaw coupling the greatest dampening characteristics, while a hard spider will provide the greatest torque capacity and strength. The jaw coupling can also be considered as a fail safe device. If the spider fails, the jaws of the two hubs interlock allowing direct power transmission, allowing the application to be safely shut down for maintenance.
