Plastic Replacing Metal in Coupling Applications - Spring 2007
Tobias Wolf and Andrew Lechner
The article "Plastic Replacing Metal in Coupling Applications" appeared in the Spring 2007 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.
When it comes to selecting a connecting element between a drive motor and a pump unit, engineers most often choose an elastomeric coupling because of its failure protection and its vibration damping capabilities. Elastomeric couplings, traditionally manufactured with metallic hubs, feature a rugged and robust design noted for its simplicity.
