Amerigear® Standard Gear Couplings
American Jaw Flange Coupling
Jaw Flange Couplings - Sizes 3-13
Application: Meets requirements of standard medium duty applications for shaft sizes up to 3 5/8". Compensates for all three types of misalignments and is particularly suitable for vertical or blind assembly installation.
Description: The American coupling consists of three basic parts - two identical jaw flanges and a floating center member. The jaw flanges are positioned at right angles to each other and engage opposite parallel surfaces of the center member. American flexible couplings are normally furnished bored for a clearance or push fit on the shafts as specified, and with a standard keyway (when specified) in each bore and two setscrews for each hub. (Sizes 3,4 and 6 have one setscrew.)
