Three-Piece Split Coupling


  • Combine two shafts and have no backlash
  • The shaft is held in place, while the second is being moved or changed.
  • A smooth bore shields shafts from the possibility of damage

designed for shafts that are aligned The 3-Piece Clamp-Type Coupler lets two shafts work as one. It can be connected to a shaft, while another one is altered or moved, or completely disassembled for the most comfortable installation and adjustment.

3-Piece Clamp Type Couplings are sold with straight-through bores. They are precision-machined with no marring and easy to adjust and feature strong clamping power.

Features of Three-Piece Split Coupling

  1. Easy Installation: The split design of the coupling allows for easy installation and removal without the need to disassemble other components of the machinery or move the shafts. It simplifies maintenance and repair work, saving time and effort.
  2. Misalignment Compensation: Three-piece split couplings can accommodate a certain degree of angular and parallel misalignment between the shafts. This flexibility helps to reduce stress and wear on the connected equipment and improves overall performance.
  3. High Torque Transmission: The design of three-piece split couplings ensures efficient torque transmission between the shafts, making them suitable for high-torque applications. The clamping hardware provides a secure and reliable connection, minimizing slippage and power loss.
  4. Dampens Vibrations: The coupling’s flexible nature helps absorb vibrations and shocks, reducing the transmission of these forces to the connected equipment. This feature helps to improve the overall smoothness and lifespan of the machinery.

It’s worth noting that the specific features and design aspects of three-piece split couplings can vary among different manufacturers and models.
