Shaft couplings are devices that connect two shafts together so that one shaft can drive the other.

Rigid shaft couplings accomplish this goal but they do not deal with angular and radial misalignment or axial movmenet that may exist between the shafts. When rigid couplings connect shafts that are mounted in bearing supports or are a component of a gearbox or motor, the misalignment will immediately or eventually cause premature damage to the bearings that support the shafts. The misalignment may also cause friction, heat, vibration, and noise.

Misalignment shaft couplings are designed to absorb the misalignment between the shafts. Ondrives offers various types of misalignment shaft couplings to solve every type of misalignment problem and to protect the supporting bearings.

Ondrives.US engineers have developed a White Paper “How to select Shaft Couplings” to assist you in the selection of the most appropriate shaft to shaft coupling for your application.

Couple to almost any shaft diameter with Ondrives.US Bore Reducers.
