TB Wood’s has announced the availability of G-Flex grid couplings based on Bibby transmission design. Designed for long life under tough application conditions, these couplings increase protection against shaft misalignment and vibration. The grid spring is shot-peened to create a protective surface layer that resists fatigue and stress corrosion, increasing the strength and working life of the grid. The couplings are interchangeable with industry-standard grid couplings. Two models are available: the 1000T10 features a horizontally split cover, suitable for limited space applications, and the 1000T20 features a vertically split cover, suitable for higher running speeds. Sizes 1020 through 1140 accommodate up to 7.25-in.-diameter shafts. TB Wood’s
