Lovejoy "Spidex" Jaw Couplings
Love joy, Spidex, Jaw, Spider
Spider Couplings (or curved jaw couplings) are characterised by high torque capacity, light weight and low mass moments of inertia. Spider Couplings are torsionally flexible and designed for positive torque transmission, and they are geneally fail-safe. Operational vibrations and shocks are efficiently dampened and reduced, and two congruent coupling halves with concave claws on the inside are peripherally offset in relation to one another by half a pitch. They are designed to enable an involute spider to be located between them.
These couplings are capable of compensating for axial, radial and angular displacements of the shafts that are connected. The maximum torsion angle amounts to 5°, and they can be fitted both horizontally or vertically.
