Bellows Couplings: Proper Selection for Optimal Performance - February 2009

Andrew Lechner

The article "Bellows Couplings: Proper Selection for Optimal Performance" appeared in the February 2009 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
For many years bellows couplings have been near the top of the list of flexible coupling choices for high-performance motion systems. Their high torsional stiffness, low moment of inertia and minimal restoring forces under misalignment make them a preferred choice for maintaining tight control over the load.

Keywords
