Flexible couplings are used to transmit torque from a stepper motor to a lead screw, thus creating the movement in an actuator.
- 5 degree flexibility helps with misalignment
- Independent screw to lock shafts
- Can reduce vibration

Couplings are strong and easy to install.
The very idea to have this coupling very flexible provides for a smoother rotation of the axis. Solves the problem on an axis being off by just a few micro meters, witch could potentially be problematic.
Use these on an x/y axis table for glove manufacturing. Operators occasionally "crash" the machine and the couplers hold up well.
Nice piece. Good quality.
