Motion Technology: Vibration Damping Precision Couplings

Jan. 7, 2014
Technical information for understanding how elastomer couplings can be used with drive technology.

Machine designers and mechanical engineers know that elastomer couplings can be used to damp rotational movement, especially in areas where vibration or impact loads are expected. Here is more information for understanding how these couplings can be used beyond transmitting rotary motion and compensating for misalignment between shafts. It covers sizing, selection and how elastomer materials are available in various hardness levels, measured on the Shore hardness scale.
