KCP GEAR coupling
KCP Gear Couplings serve as a mechanical device which connect the shafts of two distinct machines and can accommodate large axial moments as well as small amounts of shaft misalignment.
Gear Couplings transmit more torque than other types of couplings of similar physical size. Because of this superior load transmitting capability
Gear Couplings have become widely used for higher speed applications, as well as for applications that require a combination of high torque capacity and a low inertia of the drive system.
Gear Couplings are torsionally rigid and couple two designs, one of which is completely flexible and one of which is rigid. Gear Couplings consist of two shaft hubs with external teeth, which are then connected by means of a sleeve, usually two pieces, containing internal teeth. A flexible spline with the hubs and sleeves rotating together is the working action of a Gear Coupling. The proper type of lubrication, applied frequently and adequately, is essential for the successful operation of this system.
This coupling is made up of one flexible geared half and on rigid half. A flexible & rigid coupling such as this is primarily used for "floating shaft" applications. The coupling accommodates angular misalignment but does not accommodate parallel displacement of shafts.
