If you want to transmit power from one shaft to another in an industrial facility, you need a coupling. One of the high-efficiency couplings
are the universal lateral. The coupling is unique because it is designed to combat angular and radial misalignments. It is engineered to use sliding mechanism and pivotal action, especially of universal joints, to address misalignments. This is why the coupling is preferred in industrial applications that require tolerance of large misalignments.
The couplings are constructed with pins
that engage pairs of molded annular rings that are controlled to eliminate backlash. Like other couplings, the universal lateral can be designed with a wide range of materials ranging from cast iron to allow steel. Depending on the material of choice, they can also be created to be electrically isolating.
