Curved Jaw Couplings are suitable for high RPM applications requiring zero backlash. Curved Jaw Couplings are made up of two Aluminium hubs, and a Polyurethane central insert, often called a 'spider', which dampens vibration.
Curved Jaw Couplings are an excellent failsafe component, as the Coupling will continue to transmit torque, even if the central spider is worn or damaged. When the spider is excessively compressed or destroyed, the jaws of the two hubs will mate and continue to operate with metal-to-metal contact. This feature can be advantageous or disadvantageous dependent on the application.
