A rigid coupling is a unit of hardware that is used for joining two shafts
within a mechanical system. For example, they can be used to connect a motor to a generator or repairing connections with single systems. In some cases, rigid couplings can also be added between shafts to reduce wear and shock where the shafts meet. Notably, rigid couplings do not have the ability to compensate for shaft misalignment and are, therefore, used where shafts are in precise angular and lateral alignment. Any misalignment between shafts can result in high stress to your system. Rigid couplings, because of their rugged design, can transmit additional power compared to the flexible couplings. There are three types of rigid couplings that you can use for your systems. First, you can go for browning rigid couplings that are used to join two shafts within a mechanical system. Other types include flanged rigid couplings and hydraulic shaft couplings. To make rigid couplings more effective, they are designed with cap bolts positioned near each other and articulately masterminded in sets. This means they are easy to fit and achieve high performance.
