These miniature rigid couplings handle a variety of medical device applications, including test and measurement systems, imaging, patient positioning, and liquid handling such as chromatography.
Rigid couplings are zero-backlash, torsionally stiff, and have high torque capacity. They should be used when shaft misalignment is neither present nor desired, with the rigid coupling often used to help establish the alignment. These couplings feature precision honed bores on straight bore couplings for improved fit and straightness as well as Nypatch treated hardware that resists loosening in vibratory conditions. Rigid couplings with bore sizes as small as 3 mm are available in carbon steel, high grade aluminum for low inertia and 303 stainless steel.
These couplings are RoHS and REACH compliant.
