Easily removable gear coupling. Teeth use high-frequency hardening and surface area uses chromate plating for high sturdiness. Tooth type uses crowning machining and can be used up to a optimum of 5°. Pilot hole items and shaft hole comprehensive items with keyway and tap available
Gear couplings transmit the best quantity of torque and the best amount of torque in the tiniest diameter of any flexible coupling.
Each coupling includes two hubs with crowned exterior equipment teeth. The hubs mesh with two internally splined flanged sleeves that are bolted jointly. Gear couplings support angular and axial misalignment by the rocking and sliding of the crowned gear the teeth against the mating sleeve tooth. Parallel misalignment is accommodated by having two adjacent hub/sleeve flex points. Gear couplings need periodic lubrication depending on the application. They are delicate to lubrication failures but if properly installed and managed, these couplings have something life of three to five 5 years and in some instances they can last for decades.
Gear Couplings’ triple-crowned teeth are crowned upon the root, tip and encounter to articulate freely and minimize wear due to misalignment. Through the elimination of tip-loading while reducing backlash and radial clearances,HEPT triple-crown teeth might help protect tools from damaging loads.
