might not be considered flexible, the truth is that they are flexible couplings. Gear couplings are mechanical devices for transmitting torque between two non-collinear shafts
. This type of coupling is made of two joints, one fixed to each shaft. Then, the two joints are connected by a third shaft referred to as a spindle.The two joints are designed with a gear ratio of 1:1 for the internal to external pair. Then, the outer diameter and tooth flanks of the external gear are crowned to cater for angular displacement between the two gears. Gear couplings are designed in two main variations; continuous sleeve and flanged sleeve. The flanged gear coupling has short sleeves that are surrounded by a perpendicular flange. In the case of a continuous flange, the sleeve gear couplings have shaft ends abutted against each other.To see the full list of gear couplings
