Easily removable gear coupling. Teeth make use of high-frequency hardening and surface uses chromate plating for high sturdiness. Tooth type uses crowning machining and can be utilized up to a maximum of 5°. Pilot hole products and shaft hole total products with keyway and tap available
Gear couplings transmit the highest amount of torque and the best amount of torque in the tiniest diameter of any flexible coupling.
Each coupling includes two hubs with crowned external gear teeth. The hubs mesh with two internally splined flanged sleeves that are bolted with each other. Gear couplings accommodate angular and axial misalignment by the rocking and sliding of the crowned gear tooth against the mating sleeve tooth. Parallel misalignment is usually accommodated by having two adjacent hub/sleeve flex points. Gear couplings need periodic lubrication depending on the application form. They are delicate to lubrication failures but if correctly installed and managed, these couplings have something life of 3 to 5 5 years and in some instances they can last for decades.
Gear Couplings’ triple-crowned teeth are crowned on the root, tip and face to articulate freely and minimize wear caused by misalignment. By eliminating tip-loading while reducing backlash and radial clearances,HEPT triple-crown teeth can help protect Gear Couplings Inner Hub And Ring Gear devices from damaging loads.
