Clutches in Drive Technology: Shaft Couplings, Gear Couplings, and Universal Joint Shafts

Clutches are fundamental components in machines and serve to connect two shafts. They are used in various industrial sectors for drive technology. RCT, as a specialist provider of high-quality drive elements, offers a comprehensive selection of corresponding shaft couplings, gear couplings, and universal joint shafts. These components are available in different materials.

Shaft Couplings

The shaft coupling is a mechanical element designed to transmit torque from one shaft to another. A coupling, especially a shaft coupling, is often designed to handle high torques securely. Depending on specific requirements and applications, a shaft coupling can be made from various materials, with aluminum being a popular choice due to its lightweight and strength. The use of aluminum allows couplings to ensure efficient torque transmission while reducing the overall weight of the system.

Polyester couplings find application in laboratory technology and the food industry, presenting themselves as lightweight and wear-resistant couplings. They are delivered ready for installation and prove to be excellent in shock absorption and vibration damping.

HFD-type shaft couplings are three-piece lightweight couplings. They are torsionally rigid with compensation for radial and angular misalignment. Such a coupling is delivered ready for installation with a finished bore and clamping screws. Easy installation without any special tools is ensured. The couplings are resistant to acids, alkalis, solvents, and fats, with a continuous operating temperature range of -20 °C to +60 °C.

MB-type shaft couplings are supplied with a metal coating to make the coupling wear-resistant. These couplings are particularly torsionally rigid, with compensation for radial and angular misalignment. They are used for operating temperatures from -40 °C to +120 °C. The installation is simple and requires no special tools.

Gear Couplings

Gear couplings consist of a hub part and a pocket part made of PA 6.6 (polyamide). They are used to connect two shafts or hubs for low to medium torques. The couplings are resistant to fuels, fats and oils, alcohols, esters, and ketones, as well as aromatic hydrocarbons. The operating temperature range is -25 °C to +100 °C, with short-term temperatures of up to +120 °C.

Universal Joints and Ball Joints

The range of drive elements, especially couplings, is complemented by UKM-type universal joints and GF-type plastic ball joints. All joints serve to connect two shafts with angular misalignment and represent single-piece elements of up to 35° or 45°. The chemical resistance of ball joints to acids and alkalis, oils, fats, and solvents is ensured. The operating temperature range is -20 °C to +60 °C.

Plastic UW-type universal joint shafts connect two shafts with offset at changing distances. They are extendable and thus multifunctional, with a maximum deflection angle of 40° per joint. They are reserved for low torques at medium speeds.

Universal Joint Shafts

Universal joint shafts and propeller shafts are special shafts used for transmitting torque and power in drive systems. They allow the drive through variable angles, enabling machines and vehicles to flexibly respond to different operating conditions. While propeller shafts are typically designed for more direct transmissions, universal joint shafts, through their special design, allow for greater angular displacement between the two connected shafts. In many drive systems, two or more of these joints are often connected in series to ensure optimal adaptability to movements or positions. The correct selection and execution of these parts are crucial for the efficiency and longevity of the entire drive system.

A sliding sleeve is a mechanical device typically used to connect or disconnect two shaft ends or components. By sliding the sleeve along its axis, a connection can be established or released. Sliding sleeves are often used in transmissions, especially in the manual transmissions of vehicles, to select different gears. They can also be used in conjunction with universal joints or other coupling systems to establish or release the connection between shaft sections.
