Zero-Max has launched Schmidt 5D couplings that are said to be ideal for applications requiring large axial, angular and parallel shaft misalignments.

The ‘all-in-one’ coupling design is said to handle all shaft displacements, providing low backlash for precision high-torque applications such as roll forming and similar heavy duty fabricating equipment.

Zero-Max said the 5D couplings have been designed to fulfil an important need in its family of torque-rigid couplings.

They are said to allow for easy adjustment to any possible misaligned shaft position without imposing heavy side-loads on shafts, bearings or other machine equipment.

The coupling can accommodate up to 5-deg of angular misalignment and as high as 1.5in parallel misalignment while maintaining undisturbed power transmission at constant angular velocity.

Acting forces within the coupling can be precisely calculated, assuring reliable, trouble-free system operation, which is especially important in heavy-duty applications.

This design is said to tolerate high shock and reversing loads with minimal or no maintenance required.

Zero-Max said additional features include a space-saving design and easy installation – couplings can be mounted to shaft hubs or directly to existing machine flanges and there is no need to reposition either shaft being coupled).

The couplings are available in standard and inverted hub configurations in bore sizes from 1.500in to 6.375in (38mm to 160mm).

The company added that custom designs can take this coupling design beyond the catalogue specifications.

The 10 different model sizes handle speeds up to 1000rev/min and torque from 2800-500,000in/lb.

Special design modifications are available.
