- Gear couplings have a small size yet provide high torque capacity. The design minimizes loss of power transmission.
- The hubs teeth are crowned over a large surface area which lowers stress under misaligned scenarios.
- Gear couplings permit the following misalignments:
- Parallel Misalignment- The driving and driven shafts are not parallel to each other, but not in the same straight line
- Angular misalignment- The driving and driven shafts installed with a limited angle
- End floating- The driving and the driven shafts slide slightly along with the gear teeth
- Composite misalignment- In most of the cases, above three alignment appear in mixed form
- Heavy load, but compact design coupling
- High speed up to 500rpm
- Low speed but high starting torque
- End floating application
- Spacer required, due to longer distance between shaft ends
- Low load and light weight application is not recommended
