    Different types of couplings

    A coupling is a device that connects two shafts for the transmission of power. According to the alignment accuracy and torque required, couplings are rigid or flexible. The shaft coupling is a mechanical component that transmits power by connecting two spinning shafts, such as the driving shaft and the driven shaft. It’s found in motors,…
