SURE-FLEX CAPABILITIES
4-WAY FLEXING ACTION
absorbs all types of
shock, vibration and misalignment
TORSIONAL
Sure-Flex coupling sleeves have an exceptional ability to
absorb torsional shock and dampen torsional vibrations.
The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves wind-up approximately 15° torsionally at their rated torque. Hytrel
sleeves will wind-up about 7°.
ANGULAR
The unique design of the Sure-Flex coupling’s teeth
allows for the absorption of angular misalignment without
wear. Refer to page F1—18 for actual allowable
misalignment limits. These limits allow for the alignment
of the coupling using only a scale and calipers.
PARALLEL
Parallel misalignment is absorbed without wear or
appreciable energy losses. The lateral flexibility of the
coupling sleeve minimizes radial bearing loads normally
associated with parallel misalignment. This feature also
allows for easier installation by the use of components
bored for slip fits without fretting corrosion occurring at
the shaft. Refer to page F1—18 for parallel misalignment
limits. Only a straight-edge and feeler gage are required
to obtain these limits.
AXIAL
Sure-Flex couplings may be used in applications with
limited axial shaft movements. The axial compressibility
of the EPDM and Neoprene sleeves allows for shaft endfloat without the absolute transfer of thrust loads.
F1–2
SURE-FLEX FEATURES
EASY, QUICK
INSTALLATION
NO LUBRICATION,
TROUBLE-FREE OPERATION
Sure-Flex can be installed quickly and easily,
because there are no bolts, gaskets, covers
or seals. Alignment can be checked with a
straightedge placed across the outside of the
precision-machined flanges. No special tools
are needed for installation, alignment or
removal.
The teeth of the sleeve lock into the teeth of
the flanges without clamps or screws,
tightening under torque to provide smooth
transmission of power. There is no rubbing
action of metal against rubber to cause wear.
Couplings are not affected by abrasives, dirt,
or moisture. This eliminates the need for
lubrication or maintenance, provides clean,
dependable, quiet performance.

Types E and N
(Disassembled)
H-HS-U
H (Hytrel) and U (Urethane) sleeves,
designed for high-torque applications,
transmit four times as much power as an
equivalent EPDM or Neoprene sleeve.
Available in one-piece solid construction
(H or U) or two-piece split construction
(HS), these can be used only with S, C
and SC flanges. They cannot be used with
J or B flanges or as direct replacements
for EPDM or Neoprene sleeves.

*On applications involving varying torque loads, design around the maximum load. Then determine the resulting
service factor at minimum load. If this value is greater than 4.0, special coupling alignment will be required (see
page F1—18).
Caution: Applications involving reciprocating engines and reciprocating driven devices are
subject to rotational vibrational critical speeds which may destroy the coupling. The factory can
determine these speeds when the rotational inertia (WR2) of the driveR and driveN units is
known.

3. If coupling to the shaft of a 60 HZ AC motor, you may refer to page 8, locate
the correct chart & columns for your sleeve material, motor speed and service
factor; you can read the coupling size across from the motor horsepower.
Example: For 150 HP @ 1750 RPM and 1.5 Service Factor - Use #13 EPDM or
Neoprene or #10 Hytrel or Urethane.
4. For other speeds, use the following formula to calculate the required coupling
horsepower rating @ 100 rpm.
HP @ 100 rpm = HP x Service Factor x 100 / coupling RPM
5. Use the chart below to find a coupling with a HP @ 100 RPM rating which is
greater than calculated above.
Example: For 5 HP @ 55 RPM and 1.25 Service Factor:
HP @ 100 = 5 x 1.25 x 100 / 55 = 11.36
Use #12 EPDM or Neoprene or #9 Hytrel with rating of 11.4 HP.

TYPE J SURE-FLEX
BTS – FOR CLOSE COUPLED APPLICATIONS
FLANGES
Type J flanges size 3 and 4 are die
cast of high-strength alloy and are
furnished bored-to-size for a slip fit on
a standard shaft. The 4G40A zinc
alloy used has a tensile strength of
41,000 psi. Sizes 5 and 6 are made of
high-strength cast iron and are boredto-size for slip fit on standard shafts.
The outside diameter of the flange is
machined so the surface can be used
to check alignment without a special
tool. Type J flanges can be used with
sleeves of any construction except
the Hytrel. Each flange has a keyseat
and 2 setscrews.
COUPLINGS
Type J Sure-Flex Couplings are
bored-to-size. Normally, they employ
the one-piece JE sleeve, or the onepiece JES sleeve with saw cut to
permit replacement where there is
insufficient gap between shafts.
Spacing between internal flange hubs
equals G. Spacing between shafts
should be greater than 1/8 in. and
less than L minus .85 times the sum
of the two bore diameters.
To order complete couplings, specify
coupling size with flange symbol (J)
giving bore and keyseat. Refer to
page F1–3 to order the required
coupling.

TYPE S SURE-FLEX
BTS – FOR CLOSE COUPLED APPLICATIONS
COUPLINGS
Type S Sure-Flex couplings are
normally supplied with the twopiece E sleeve. However, any of the
sleeves shown on page F1—5 can
be used with Type S flanges.
Spacing between internal flange
hubs equals L minus 2 times C.
Spacing between shafts should be
greater than 1/8 in. and less than L
minus .85 times the sum of the two
bore diameters.
To order complete couplings,
specify coupling size with flange
symbol (S) giving bore and keyseat.
Refer to page F1—3 to order the
required coupling.

TYPE B BUSHED-FLEX
QD – FOR CLOSE COUPLED APPLICATIONS
FLANGES
Type B flanges are made of highstrength cast iron the same as Types
S, C and SC Sure-Flex flanges. Type
B, however, is designed to
accommodate Wood’s Sure-Grip
Bushing for easy installation and
removal.
BUSHINGS
Sure-Grip Bushings offer convenient
mounting of the flange to the shaft
securely without setscrews. They
are tapered and are split through
both the bushing flange and taper to
provide a clamp fit, eliminating
wobble, vibration and fretting
corrosion. This is the same bushing
used in Wood’s sheaves and pulleys
and is readily available everywhere.

SURE-FLEX® COUPLINGS
Installation Instructions
Sure-Flex flanges (outer metallic parts) and sleeves (inner
elastomeric members) come in many sizes and types. First,
determine the size and type of components being used.
Remove all components from their boxes, and loosely
assemble the coupling on any convenient surface. (Do not
attempt to install the wire ring on the two-piece E or N sleeve
at this time.) Also check maximum RPM values in the table
against operating speed. All rubber sleeves (EPDM and
Neoprene) have the same ratings for a given size and may be
used interchangeably. However, because rubber and Hytrel
sleeves have completely different ratings, they never should be
used interchangeably.
Inspect all coupling components and remove any protective
coatings or lubricants from bores, mating surfaces and
fasteners. Remove any existing burrs, etc. from the shafts.
Slide one coupling flange onto each shaft, using snugfitting keys where required. When using Type B flanges,
follow the instructions furnished with the Sure-Grip bushing.
Position the flanges on the shafts to approximately achieve
the Y dimension shown in the table. It is usually best to
have an equal length of shaft extending into each flange. Move
one flange to its final position. Torque fasteners to proper
values. Slide the other flange far enough away to install the
sleeve. With a two-piece sleeve, do not move the wire ring to its
final position; allow it to hang loosely in the groove adjacent to
the teeth.
Check angular alignment with a micrometer or caliper.
Measure from the outside of one flange to the outside of
the other at intervals around the periphery of the coupling.
Determine the maximum and minimum dimensions without
rotating the coupling. The difference between the maximum
and minimum must not exceed the figure given under “Angular”
in the table. If a correction is necessary, be sure to recheck the
parallel alignment.

Slide the loose flange on the shaft until the sleeve is
completely seated in the teeth of each flange. (The “Y”
dimension is for reference and not critical.) Secure the flange
to the shaft. Different coupling sleeves require different degrees
of alignment precision. Locate the alignment values for your
sleeve size and type in the table.
Check parallel alignment by placing a straight-edge across
the two coupling flanges and measuring the maximum
offset at various points around the periphery of the coupling
without rotating the coupling. If the maximum offset exceeds
the figure shown under “Parallel” in the table, realign the shafts.

Note: Values shown above apply if the actual torque
transmitted is more than 1/4 the coupling rating. For
lesser torque, reduce the above values by 1/2.
*Type H and HS sleeves should not be used as direct
replacements for EPDM or Neoprene sleeves.
If the coupling employs the two-piece sleeve with the wire
ring, force the ring into its groove in the center of the sleeve.
It may be necessary to pry the ring into position with a blunt
screwdriver.

Install coupling guards per OSHA requirements.
CAUTION: Coupling sleeves may be thrown from the coupling
assembly with substantial force when the coupling is

Note: The above applications depict the generally accepted conditions encountered in industry. Conditions subject to extreme
temperatures, abrasive dusts, corrosive liquids, excessively high starting torques, etc., must be considered as extra heavy
shock loads. These conditions will increase service factors. Consult TB Wood’s for these selections.
C. Calculate Design Horsepower or Design Torque
• If Prime Mover is a 1160, 1750, or 3500 rpm motor.
Design Hp = Prime Mover HP x Service Factor
Go to page F2—3 and reference the corresponding motor rpm column.
• If Prime Mover is not one of the three speeds listed above.
Design HP @ 100 rpm = (Primer Mover Hp x Service Factor x 100) / Coupling RPM
Go to page F2—3 and reference HP @ 100 RPM column.
• If Using Prime Mover Torque
Design Torque = Prime Mover Torque x Service Factor
Go to page F2—3 and reference Torque column.
D. Select Coupling (DURA-FLEX Couplings are sold by component)
A DURA-FLEX Assembly consists of one element (STD or Spacer) and two hubs (BTS or QD). Optional high speed rings may also
be ordered for spacer elements. Below is an ordering example for Dura-Flex Couplings.

DURA-FLEX METRIC COUPLING SELECTION
A. Determine the Prime Mover Classification
Prime Mover
Class
• Electric Motors (Standard duty), Hydraulic Motors, Turbines
• Gasoline or Steam Engines (4 or more cylinders)
• Diesel or Gas Engines, High Torque Electric Motors
A
B
C
B. Determine the Load Characteristics and the Service Factor
Typical Applications
Agitators (pure liquids), Blowers (centrifugal, Can and Bottle
Filling Machines, Conveyors - uniformly loaded or fed (belt,
chain, screw), Fans (centrifugal), Generators (uniform load),
Pumps (centrifugal), Screens (air washing, water), Stokers
(uniform load), Woodworking Machines (planers, routers, saws)
Load
Uniform
Characteristics
Even loads - no shock - non
reversing - infrequent starts (up
to 10 per hour) - low starting
torques
Beaters, Blowers (lobe, vane), Compressors (centrifugal, rotary), Moderate Uneven loads - moderate shock
Conveyors - non uniformly loaded or fed (belt, bucket, chain,
shock Infrequent reversing-moderate
screw), Dredge Pumps, Fans (forced draft, propeller), Kilns,
torques
Paper Mills (calendars, converting machines, conveyors, dryers,
mixers, winders), Printing Presses, Pumps (gear, rotary),
Shredders, Textile Machinery (dryers, dyers)
Cranes (bridge, hoist, trolley), Fans (cooling tower), Generators
(welding), Hammer Mills, Mills (ball, pebble, rolling, tube,
tumbling), Pumps (oil well), Wire Drawing Machines
Heavy
shock
Uneven loads - heavy shock frequent starts and stops - high
starting torques - high inertia

Note: The above applications depict the generally accepted conditions encountered in industry. Conditions subject to extreme
temperatures, abrasive dusts, corrosive liquids, excessively high starting torques, etc., must be considered as extra heavy
shock loads. These conditions will increase service factors. Consult TB Wood’s for these selections.
C. Calculate Design Horsepower or Design Torque
• If Prime Mover is a 970, 1450, or 3000 rpm motor.
Design KW = Prime Mover KW x Service Factor
Go to page F2—9 and reference the corresponding motor rpm column.
• If Prime Mover is not one of the three speeds listed above.
Design KW @ 100 rpm = (Primer Mover KW x Service Factor x 100) / Coupling RPM
Go to page F2—9 and reference KW @ 100 RPM column.
• If Using Prime Mover Torque
Design Torque = Prime Mover Torque x Service Factor
Go to page F2—9 and reference Torque column.

Note: The above applications depict the generally accepted conditions encountered in industry. Conditions subject to extreme
temperatures, abrasive dusts, corrosive liquids and dusts. Excessively high starting torques, etc., must be considered as
extra heavy shock loads. These conditions will increase service factors. Consult factory for these selections.
Calculate Design Horsepower or Design Torque
• If Prime Mover is a 1200, 1800, or 3600 rpm motor.
Design Hp = Prime Mover HP x Service Factor
Go to page F3—3 and reference the corresponding motor rpm column.
• If Prime Mover is not one of the three speeds listed above.
Design Hp @ 100 rpm = (Primer Mover Hp x Service Factor x 100) / Coupling RPM
Go to page F3—3 and reference HP @ 100 RPM column.
• If Using Prime Mover Torque
Design Torque = Prime Mover Torque x Service Factor
Go to page F3—3 and reference Torque column.
Jaw Couplings are sold by component
Below is an ordering example for each Jaw style coupling.

FORM-FLEX METAL DISC
FLEXIBLE COUPLINGS
Form-Flex couplings transmit torque while compensating for angular, parallel and axial misalignment between
two connected shafts. Flexible disc couplings minimize the misalignment forces on the connected equipment.
The Basic flex coupling consists of two hubs, a spacer and two flexible discs. The flex disc is an assembly of
thin metal laminations. In figure shown below, flex disc holes A & C are bolted to the hub and holes B & D are
bolted to the spacer. Torque is transmitted in direct tensions from A to B and from C to D through the flex disc.
Misalignment is taken through bending in the link between the bolt holes.
COOLING TOWER DRIVES
VERTICAL PUMP DRIVES
Form-Flex metal disc couplings are widely used in
cooling fan drive applications. Form-Flex 4 bolt disc
couplings offer more misalignment capacity than any
competing metal disc design.
For smaller towers up to about 100 inches DBSE, TB
Wood’s offers steel and composite spacer tubing
options. TrueTube composite torque tubes are lighter
than steel and eliminate thermal growth and vibration
problems.
Form-Flex composite floating shaft couplings are
recommended as a replacement for older
multi-section drivelines. Composite couplings can
span up to 240 inches without high maintenance
center support bearings.
F5–2
Form-Flex floating shaft couplings are a costeffective, maintenance free alternative to cardan
U-joints for vertical pump drivelines. Form-Flex
couplings are available with either steel or composite
spacer tubing. Composite spacer tubing can reduce
total cost by eliminating the need for bearings and
support structures.

Single flexing couplings compensate for
angular and axial misalignment only. Single
couplings should only be used in a three
bearing system with a self-aligning bearing
as shown in the illustration.
Single couplings may also be used in pairs to
support a clutch, transducer or other system
component. These arrangements are double
flexing and must be used with two fully
supported shafts as described below.

can be reached with a close couple design.
Spacer couplings allow room for installation
and maintenance without moving the
connected equipment. Shaft separations
are generally in the range of 3 to 12 inches.
These couplings accommodate angular,
parallel and axial misalignment.

Semi-floating shaft couplings are a special
single flex version of the floating shaft
coupling. These may be used alone for
some applications or in combination with
floating shaft couplings and pillow block
bearings to span long distances.
Composite floating shaft couplings should
be considered as an alternative to multiple
span applications with center bearings.

DYNAMIC BALANCING RECOMMENDATIONS
Use this graph to determine the appropriate balance class based on
coupling weight and operating speed. The balance classes listed on
the graph are for equipment with average sensitivity to coupling
unbalance. The user should determine how sensitive the equipment
train is to coupling unbalance. Use one balance class higher if your
system has higher than average sensitivity to unbalance. Use one
balance class lower if your system has lower than average sensitivity to
unbalance. Use this guide to check your coupling selection against the
recommended balance class for your operating conditions.
The following factors should be considered when determining a machine’s
sensitivity to coupling unbalance.
1) Shaft End Deflection: Machines having flexible shaft extensions are
relatively sensitive to coupling unbalance.
2) Bearing Load Due to Coupling Weight Relative to Total Bearing Load:
Machines having lightly loaded bearings, bearings that are primarily
loaded by the weight of the coupling or other overhung weight are
relatively sensitive to coupling unbalance.
3) Bearing, Bearing Support and Foundation Flexibility: Machines
or systems with flexible foundations for supports for the rotating
elements are relatively sensitive to coupling unbalance.
4) System Natural Frequencies: Machines operating at or near natural
frequencies are sensitive to coupling unbalance.
5) Machine Separation: System having widely separated machines are
relatively sensitive to coupling unbalance.
6) Shaft Extension Relative to Bearing Span: Machines having a short
bearing span relative to their shaft extensions are sensitive to
static unbalance.
HOW FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS ACCOMMODATE MISALIGNMENT
Double flexing metal disc couplings may be used to accommodate angular,
parallel and axial misalignment. Single flexing couplings may only be used to
accommodate angular and axial misalignment. A metal disc type coupling uses
a double hinge effect through two flexible discs and the spacer to compensate
for parallel offset misalignment between shafts. Parallel misalignment
imposes the same angular deflection (A) on each flex disc. Angular
misalignment of either connected shaft, (B), creates additional angular
deflections which are added to the angular offset due to parallel misalignment.
The total misalignment angle, (C), at the flex disc is equal to the angular offset
due to parallel misalignment (A) plus the angular offset due to angular
misalignment (B). The maximum misalignment angle (C) should never exceed
the rated misalignment capacity of the coupling type being used. Machinery
equipment changes in actual operation and over the life of the equipment. We
recommend that the machinery misalignment be set as close to zero as
possible when a coupling is installed. We recommend keeping the measured
misalignment below 25% of the rated misalignment capacity of the
coupling type used when the machinery is installed and aligned. The remaining
coupling misalignment capacity will then be available to accommodate additional
misalignment caused by foundation shifts, vibrations, thermal growth or other causes.

CLOSE COUPLE – AA SERIES
4 BOLT CLOSE COUPLED COUPLING
(GENERAL USE – SHORTER BOLT REMOVAL)
The AA series close coupling is made up of two hubs, a cast iron block type spacer and two sets of standard
hardware. Stainless steel flex discs are standard. The AA accommodates close shaft separations when it is
installed with the shafts extending through the flex discs into the center of the coupling. The shaft diameter
must be less than the flex disc I.D. listed in the dimensional table. This coupling is recommended when the
bolt removal length (J) makes the AX coupling impractical.
Special machined steel block spacers are also available in several sizes.

CLOSE COUPLE – BY SERIES
6 BOLT CLOSE COUPLED COUPLING
The BY series close coupling is a low cost replacement for gear or elastomeric couplings. It is ideal for use
in low to moderate speed applications with motor or turbine drivers. The BY is an economical alternative to
Axial Split spacer designs. The BY accommodates close shaft spacings by allowing the connected shafts
to extend through the flex discs and spacer without restriction. The spacer is not service removable if the
shaft gap is less than the D1 dimension shown. For shorter shaft spacings, the flex discs may still be
replaced by removing the coupling bolts and shuttling the spacer from side to side.
Inverted (BY) and Extended (BH) hubs are available to allow varying shaft diameters and spacing.

AXIAL SPLIT SPACER COUPLINGS
Axial split spacer couplings are an ideal replacement for lubricated gear or grid couplings. Close shaft
separations are met without requirements for extending shafts through hubs. The split spacer removes
radially to allow removal of connected equipment. Flex discs may be replaced without disturbing the
connected equipment. The axial split series features all steel construction. Stainless steel flex discs are
standard for the BA series. Both stainless and high strength alloy steel flex disc options are available with
the DA series.

The A7 coupling is a single flexing coupling designed for use in widely spaced three bearing systems. The
shaft end of the coupling must be supported by a self-aligning bearing. A full floating coupling may be used
in combination with the semi-floating coupling to span longer distances, or a V-Belt drive or other
component may be mounted to the shaft end. This A7 is made-to-order to any custom spacer length. A7
series standard pricing is listed at D dimensions up to 36 inches and D dimensions between 36 inches and
max L at 1800 RPM motor speed.

TRUE TUBE ™ COMPOSITE TORQUE TUBES
True-Tube composite tubes are high-strength, lightweight torque tubes for long span drive shafts. These
tubes are filament wound carbon or glass fiber construction in an oven cured epoxy matrix. True-Tube
composites offer the following advantages over steel tubing.
LONGER SPANS
TrueTube composite tubes have a higher stiffness to weight ratio than steel tubing. That
increases the critical speed of the tubing and allows longer spans without center bearings.
LIGHT WEIGHT
TrueTube drive shafts weigh up to 80% less than equivalent steel driveshafts. That
means better balance and reduced vibration. Bearing life may be improved by
minimizing overhung weight.
DESIGN FLEXIBILITY
TrueTube composite tubes may be custom designed to meet your requirements for
torsional stiffness, critical speed or torque capacity. With TrueTube, a designer can tune
torsional or lateral critical speeds out of a machine system.
All TrueTube products include an ultraviolet barrier that is wound into the structure of the tube before
it is cured. This UV barrier eliminates the need for paints or other protective coatings and results in a
smooth, durable finish that other composite tubes don’t offer. TrueTube products are cured in an enclosed
oven to assure consistent strength and quality. Design data is shown below for standard series tubes.
Standard series tubes are designed for maximum length at moderate torques. High torque designs are also
available.

M SERIES – 4 BOLT MICRO COUPLINGS
Form-Flex M series microcouplings are a more compact and lighter design than traditional A Series couplings. They
are free from backlash and their high torsional stiffness makes them ideally suited for small servo and tachometer
drives. Aluminum hub construction meets low inertia requirements while the bolted assembly provides superior life
when compared to riveted types.
STYLE MA
STYLE MB
This coupling style is available
in size 04 only. It features a
machined spool type spacer.
Custom length spacers are
also available.
This coupling style features a
minimum length block spacer.
Standard flanged hubs are
supplied with the coupling.
Style MB is a good, general
use coupling.

COOLING TOWER COUPLINGS
The traditional A5 design features all metal
construction. It can be ordered to meet any custom
spacer length. A wide variety of materials and
finishes is available.
Designed specifically as a connection for cooling
tower applications and other drives requiring long
shaft spans. Form-Flex couplings with TrueTube
composite tubing weigh less than half of its steel
counterpart and can span shaft separations of up to
240 inches. They are easy to handle, install and
maintain. TrueTube composites are extremely
corrosion resistant and are custom designed to
provide the optimum combination of torsional
strength and lateral stiffness for cooling tower drive
applications. TB Wood’s proprietary composite
flange design transmits torque reliably from the
metal outboard hubs to the composite flange and
into the TrueTube composite tube.
HD elastomeric couplings and TrueTube composites
are combined into a high misalignment, all
composite coupling. These couplings are easy to
install and align. Their high misalignment capacity
makes them ideal for smaller, wood framed and
fiberglass towers.

GEAR COUPLING SELECTION
Calculate Design Horsepower or Design Torque
• If HP and RPM are Known, Calculate Design [email protected] RPM
Design [email protected] RPM=(Prime mover HP x Service Factor x 100) divided by the Coupling RPM
Refer to the [email protected] RPM rating for the coupling style desired. Select the coupling equal to or greater than the
calculated design [email protected] RPM. Check the maximum bore capabilities to be sure the size coupling you have
chosen is capable of your largest bore.
• If Using Prime Mover Torque, Calculate Design Torque
Design Torque = Prime Mover Torque x Service Factor
Refer to torque rating in the coupling style desired. Select the coupling equal to or greater than the calculated
design torque. Check the maximum bore capabilities to be sure the size coupling you have chosen is capable of
your largest bore.
The above selection can be used for all series of industrial gear couplings, however, the Deck-Flex and
Deck-Flex Mite couplings have their own calculations.

Notes:
(1) “H” Dimension – Clearance to align coupling.
(2) AGMA CLASS 8 balance requires the manufacture
of two special flexible hubs.
(3) When ordering please specify bore diameter with
tolerances for both hubs, keyway sizes, set screws if
applicable, speed, horsepower, application details,
amount of thrust on either or both shafts, and
amount of end float desired.
(4) Horsepower, Torque Capacity and Parallel
Misalignment Capacity for sizes 1 through 5-1/2 are
based on 1-1/2 degrees angular misalignment per
gear mesh and maximum bore. Sizes 6 & 7 are
based on 3/4 degree angular misalignment. Consult
Engineering for greater HP capacity.
(5) Dimension is total end float. (May be modified to suit
customer requirements.)

DETERMINED
BY
BSE
Maximum RPM of Floating
Shaft set, determined by
critical speed of Floating
Shaft.
Note 1. Horsepower,
Torque Capacity for
sizes 1 through 5-1/2
are based on 1-1/2
degrees angular
misalignment per gear
mesh and maximum
bore. Sizes 6 and 7 are
based on 3/4 degrees
angular misalignment.
Note 2. A single flexrigid coupling does not
accept parallel
misalignment.
Note 3. When ordering
a complete floating
shaft coupling specify
the distance between
shaft ends, bore
diameter with
tolerances for both
outboard hubs, keyway
sizes, set screws if
applicable, speed,
horsepower, and all
application details.
Note 4. Due to larger
bore capacity outboard
rigid hubs will be
furnished unless
otherwise specified.
MXB SERIES GEAR COUPLINGS
Mounting Options
To allow for larger between-shaft spacing, the overall length of a standard MXB Series
coupling can vary by reversing one or both hubs.

Blind assembly couplings can be produced by
ordering a 3 groove sleeve (GDFS3 or
GDFMS3) and installing a center retaining ring.
With the addition of this center retaining ring,
the outer rings are not needed and the
installation involves no more than sliding the
hubs into the sleeves.
RIGID COUPLINGS

RIGID COUPLINGS
This coupling is designed to provide a simple method of rigidly connecting two pieces of shafting. The
standard Sure-Grip tapered bushing is used, one on each shaft, to securely clamp the two shafts together.
The precision tapered fit lines up the two shafts. No press or shrink fits are necessary.
