The Oldham coupling from Huco Dynatork can now be manufactured — in small batches from bar — in as little as two working days.

According to the company, the Oldham is precision engineered throughout and comprises two hubs with inward-facing tenons; these engage with matching slots spaced at 90° in a central lightweight torque disc. 

As the coupling rotates, the disc compensates for any parallel shaft offset by sliding the commensurate distance along each tenon in turn. 

Key benefits

  • The disc is precision moulded from high-grade engineering polymers and is the main element in the drivetrain. 
  • If severely overloaded, the torque disc will break, acting as a mechanical fuse, thereby protecting associated equipment from damage.
  • A replacement torque disc quickly restores the drive without the need to dismantle the drive system.

Huco Dynatork is a world-class manufacturer of flexible couplings.

Whether the need is for high torsional stiffness, generous misalignment capability, high-speed operation or a capacity for operating in push/pull mode, Huco Dynatork can help. And if your requirements fall outside our standard range, we offer a customised service and cost-efficient small-batch production. 

Our range is highly comprehensive, comprising membrane and bellows high-performance couplings; Oldham and Uni-Lat general-purpose motion control couplings; Single-Beam, Multi-Beam and Step-Beam brands; and jaw/spider and double loop light power drive couplings. We also stock stainless steel and plastic universal joints.

Although the design and manufacture of couplings remains the cornerstone of our business, this is just one of the company's five main product groups. Huco Dynatork piston air motors is one of them, the only brand that can be used for precision motion control. 

Our quality hallmark is also impressed onto a huge range of power transmission and motion control components that have distinct design and performance benefits over other products in the market. In addition to an extensive choice of stock gears, racks, ground shafts and spline shafts, the product programme also includes the comprehensive BSA range of leadscrews and ballscrews.
