Elastic Couplings

Home » product » Power Transmissions » Elastic Couplings


The ELASTIC COUPLINGS are designed to absorb torsional shocks, vibrations and correct any misalignment produced by different factors (vibrations, thermal expansions…) in the angular and parallel connection between two shafts of rotating machines, guaranteeing the transmission of the required power and reliably avoiding breakage. The elastic couplings supplied by ABS are coupleable and very easy to assemble. Elastic couplings typically consist of two hubs, which are attached to the shafts, and an elastic element, such as a rubber or polyurethane element, which connects the hubs and allows for the necessary flexibility.

How to choose an Elastic Coupling?

ABS designs, manufactures, and supplies a wide range of elastic couplings depending on your application. To correctly choose an elastic coupling, the following factors must be considered. Get in touch with us and we will help you select the best option!

  • Type of machine
  • Power of the machine
  • Temperature conditions
  • Load conditions and types (peaks, impacts, moments of inertia)
  • Maximum noise level
  • Speed of rotation of coupling

Industrial applications of the Elastic Couplings

Elastic couplings are commonly used in a wide range of industrial applications, such as pumps, compressors, fans, and conveyors. They are also used in many types of power transmission systems, including gearboxes, and are often used in situations where precise alignment of the shafts is difficult or impossible to achieve. They are known for their ability to reduce vibration, noise and to dampen the shock loads. Elastic couplings are relatively low-cost, easy to install and maintain, and can be adjusted in the field to accommodate changes in the alignment of the connected shafts.
