SYPT H-EUPEX high flexible couplings are for shaft connection of machines,they compensate for shaft misalignment,generating only low restorative forces.
The torque is conducted through elastomer flexibles, so the coupling has typically flexible rubber properties.
The flexible inserts of the H-EUPEX coupling are subjected to compression. If the flexible inserts are irreparably damaged, the hub parts come into contact with metal. This “emergency operation capability” is required, etc., in the case of fire pump drives.
The motor torque is transmitted to the hub at the drive end via the shaft-hub connection, which is mostly designed as a keyway connection. The torque is transmitted to the hub on the output side with the aid of elastomer flexible inserts. The hub on the output side further transmits the torque to the driven machine or a gear unit placed in between. Because of the primarily compressionloaded elastomer flexible inserts, the coupling has a progressive torsional stiffness.

How Does a Gear Coupling Handle Angular, Parallel, and Axial Misalignment?
Gear couplings are designed to handle various types of misalignment, including angular, parallel, and axial misalignment. Here’s how they handle each type:
- Angular Misalignment: Angular misalignment occurs when the two connected shafts are not collinear and form an angle with each other. Gear couplings can accommodate angular misalignment due to the flexibility of their gear teeth. The gear teeth allow a slight angular movement between the shafts without causing significant stress on the coupling.
- Parallel Misalignment: Parallel misalignment occurs when the two connected shafts are offset along their axis but remain parallel to each other. Gear couplings can handle parallel misalignment to some extent due to the slight axial movement allowed by the gear teeth. However, for larger parallel misalignments, special gear couplings with spacer elements or other features may be required.
- Axial Misalignment: Axial misalignment occurs when the two connected shafts are not in the same axial plane and have an offset along their length. Gear couplings can handle a certain degree of axial misalignment because the gear teeth can accommodate small axial movements without causing damage to the coupling or connected equipment.
The ability of gear couplings to handle misalignment is one of their key advantages over other types of couplings. The gear teeth act as flexible elements that can compensate for minor misalignments, reducing the stress and wear on the coupling and the connected equipment. However, it is essential to ensure that the misalignment remains within the allowable limits specified by the coupling manufacturer to maintain optimal performance and reliability.
