Schmidt 5D couplings from Zero-Max are suitable for applications requiring large axial, angular and parallel shaft misalignments. The all-in-one, space-saving design handles all shaft displacements, providing low backlash for precision, high-torque applications such as roll forming and similar heavy-duty fabricating equipment. Accommodating up to five degrees of angular misalignment and up to 1.5 in. parallel misalignment, the coupling tolerates high shock and reversing loads with minimal or no maintenance required. Easy to install, it is available in standard and inverted hub configurations in bore sizes from 38 mm to 160 mm or 1.500 in. to 6.375 in. Ten model sizes handle speeds up to 1,000 rpm and torque from 2,800 to 500,000 in.-lb.
