Schmidt Flexible Couplings



Schmidt Inline Couplings – L400 Series

Schmidt Inline Couplings are a torque-rigid type, designed with two pairs of parallel links installed 90 degrees out of phase with each other. This linkage arrangement allows for the precise transmission of torque and constant angular velocity between shafts with small to moderate parallel misalignments. The coupling utilizes needle bearings which can be preloaded for Low and Ultra Low backlash conditions. Where backlash is not as critical, non-lubricated filament wound Teflon® bearings are available for higher torque capacity and where relubrication of the coupling is difficult.

Typical applications which benefit from the high accuracy provided by Schmidt Inline Couplings are feeders, embossers, compactors, printing presses and many others.

Schmidt Inline Couplings are available for a torque range from 500 to 35,000 inch-pounds. Couplings for higher torque requirements are made available on special orders.
