Looking for couplings for packaging applications? These rigid couplings meet this application’s demanding needs. They have precision honed bores, anti-vibration hardware, and opposing hardware on two-piece styles to ensure fit, alignment, and holding power. They are available in a variety of sizes, styles, and materials to suit the needs of packaging applications such as case erectors, cartoners, baggers, web converters, and form, fill, seal equipment.
For shaft-to shaft connections and precise servo driven applications found in packaging, they do not introduce misalignment, vibration, or bearing noise into the system. Straight bore rigid couplings have precision honed bores for better fit, torque transmission, and alignment. The cross cut design accommodates slight deviations in the size of the shafts being connected for proper fit.
The rigid coupling hardware comes with proprietary Nypatch coating to resist vibration and maintain holding power. Nypatch provides even seating of the screw, repeated screw installations and prevents galling. Two-piece styles have opposing hardware for balancing, reduced vibration, and higher speed capabilities.
Rigid couplings are offered in one- and two-piece clamp styles with or without keyways in bore sizes ranging from 1/8 in. (3 mm) to 2 in. (50 mm). Materials include 1215 lead-free steel, 2024 lightweight aluminum for low inertia, and 303 stainless steel for corrosion resistance. All of these couplings are RoHS2 and REACH compliant.
