Lovejoy "Spidex" Jaw Couplings

Lovejoy "Spidex" Jaw Couplings - Hubs & Inserts

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.


Hubs - Powdered Metal, Aluminum,  or Cast Iron
Spider - Polyurethane
Standard Spider Color - Yellow 92º shore hardness - ideal for General & Hydraulic


Optional spider colors:

Blue -  80º shore hardness - Good pampening Properties

Red - 95º/98º shore hardness - High Torque

Green - 64º shore hardness - Special - High Humidity
