Coupling Selection Guide
●Mechanical characteristics of the motor
The mechanical characteristics of the motor have a certain influence on the entire transmission system.Diferent types of motors should select the corresponding motor coefficient K according to their characteristics.Choosing the best coupling suitable for the system,the category of the motor is the fundamental factor in choosing the type of coupling.The power of the motor is an important basis for determining the size of the coupling.lt is proportional to the torque of the coupling.
Due to the diferent construction and materials,the couplings used in the transmission systems of various mechanical products vary greatly in their bearing capacity.The load category mainly forms different types of loads for the impact vibration,forward and reverse,braking,freguent starting,etc.Of the working load of the working machine.For ease of calculation, the load of the drive system is divided into four categories,as shown in the followina list：
●Coupling rotational frequency
The allowable rotational frequency range of the coupling is determined by calculation based on the allowable line speed,maximum outer size and diferent materials of the coupling.Couplings of diferent materials,varieties and specifications have different allowable rotational frequency ranges.Changing the material of the coupling can increase the allowable rotational frequency range of the coupling.
●Relative misalignment of two shafts connected by the coupling
The two shafts connected by the coupling are deformed due to manufacturing errors,assembly errors,mounting errors,shaft-detormation,pedestal deformation,bearing wear,temperature changes(thermal expansion and contraction),relative movement between components,etc.Factors that produce relative misalignment.
●Coupling transmission accuracy
The small torque and the shafting transmission based on the transmission motion require the coupling to have a high transmission tip,and the metal fexible coupling should be selected.Large torque and transmission-based shafting drive also need high transmision tip,if high-speed should avoid the use of non-metallic components flexible couplings or flexible couplings with space between movable components,and Disc-Coupling should be selected.
●Coupling size,installation and maintenance
The overall dimensions of the coupling,is the maximum radial and axial dimensions,must be within the allowable installation space of the machine.Should choose the coupling that convenient assembly and disassembly maintenance free or easy maintenance,replace the wearing parts without moving the two shafts,easier centering.
Couplings are used in a variety of different host products the surrounding working environment is complex,like temperature,limit,watevapor,dust, sand,radiation,etc.are one of the important factors that must be considered when selecting a coupling.
