Schmidt 5D Couplings suit applications requiring large axial, angular and parallel shaft misalignments. This “all-in-one” coupling design will handle all shaft displacements providing low backlash. They allow easy adjustment to any possible misaligned shaft position without imposing heavy side loads on shafts, bearings or other machine equipment.
The coupling can accommodate up to 5 degrees of angular misalignment and as high as 1.5 in. parallel misalignment while maintaining undisturbed power transmission at constant angular velocity. They tolerate high shock and reversing loads with minimal or no maintenance. Available in standard and inverted hub configurations in bore sizes from 1.500 to 6.375 in. or 38 mm to 160 mm. The ten different model sizes handle speeds up to 1000 RPM and torque from 2800 to 500,000 in-lb.
