AutomationDirect’s SIM line offers four styles of couplings to suit different applications.
AutomationDirect has added SIM drive couplings to their line of mechanical power transmission products. Four different styles of couplings are available. Jaw/Spider couplings provide a wide range of fitment and higher torque. Oldham couplings provide a higher speed rating and allow for a higher misalignment of mated shafts. Servo beam style couplings add an increase to speed rating and have zero backlash, while high-gain couplings offer the highest speed ratings, excellent vibration absorption as well as zero backlash.
