Information about the different couplings is discussed in this module. Couplings are classified and the applications of each type is explained. The concepts and functions are detailed with a description of its construction and the reason for its structure. Advantages and disadvantages are compared and the operation of each type is illustrated.
Couplings are an important method to connect driver and driven. Couplings come in different shapes and sizes. The application of couplings has a wide variety, and the construction of couplings differs according to its application. Couplings should be able to endure the extreme stress the couplings are exposed to. Designing a coupling is derived from the need for the different situations the couplings are applied in. Environmental factors influence the choice of couplings. Couplings simplify complex connection and couplings can operate under extreme conditions not all equipment can handle.
