COUPLINGS

DSL-1200-R1

Daido Precision Industries Ltd.

The origin of DPI


s coupling dates back to a license agreement between then
Turbo-Flex Corp in England and Tokushu Seiko in 1973, Leading to the foundation of a joint venture named Daido Sprag Ltd., in 1976.
Since then, our couplings have been widely accepted in Japanese Market under the
bland name of FORM-FLEX COUPLING and have acquired a high reputation
for their superior performance and quality among our customers covering every
field of industries in Japan.

Daido Precision Industries Ltd. (DPI) was established in September 1995 after a
merger of Tokushu Seiko and Daido Sprag Ltd., two affiliated companies of
Daido Steel, one of a leading specialty steel producers in Japan., and makes various model of couplings together with compressor valve components and details of
high precision.

In all areas of industry, the demand for machinery and equipment of greater performance has ever increased. Couplings, serving as vital transmission parts, are no
exception to meet higher and more stringent quality requirements.

CONTENTS

Lubricating oil is unnecessary because the FORM-FLEX COUPLING


has no sliding, frictional, or moving parts. Therefore, there is no friction or noise, and energy loss is low, with no dirty oil to cope with.
For most high-speed gear couplings, an expensive filter and guard
are needed for forced lubrication and oil recovery, but these are not
required for FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS.

No Lubricating Oil Necessary

Flexible couplings prevent problems by absorbing


shaft misalignment while transmitting torque; this puts
an opposing load on the shaft. With FORM-FLEX
COUPLINGS, however, this load is much lower than
with other types of couplings.

Should the element be damaged due to overload or accident, a


fail-safe mechanism transmitting rotation via washers becomes
operational.

Fail-Safe Mechanism

Couplings can be mounted and unmounted quickly and easily due


to their compactness and small number of parts. Excellent
reassembly characteristics provide superior speed. The use of
spacers with the coupling permits easy mounting and dismounting
without the necessity of moving heavy machinery. This is helpful in
the replacement of seals and bearings in pumps and other equipment.

These couplings are applicable for a wide variety of systems


because of their great range of allowable misalignment. Special
designs for even larger allowances are possible.

Load stress on FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS is maintained at very


low levels, except in special cases. Therefore, the service life of
these couplings is practically unlimited when operated within the
acceptable range of allowable misalignment.

Rugged Construction and


Small Load Stress

Easy Mounting and


Dismounting

Since no lubricating oil is required, FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS


made of standard materials operate satisfactorily, even at high
ambient temperatures. Further, the use of special materials and/or
coatings makes operation under any environmental condition possible.

Superior Resistance to
Environmental Conditions

For equipment such as machine tools with numerical controllers,


indexing systems, and printing machines requiring accurate shaft
rotation and phase control, FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS are best
suited because of their high torsional stiffness.

FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS are available in a wide
range of specifications to meet various operating conditions. Requirements for lighter weight can be met by
using a type whose main body is made of a light material such as alloyed aluminum.

Light Weight with High


Torque

When properly installed and if initial conditions remain unchanged,


FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS have an unlimited service life. Required
maintenance consists of a visual inspection of the condition of the
element (flexible plate) and of the bolts and nuts when operation is
stopped.

Driving mechanism with less occurrence of bending stress


The arrangement of the minimum of four driving and driven reamer bolts on a
common radius minimizes the bending stress on the flexible element when operated under axial and/or angular misalignment. Cyclic stress is also reduced.

Power transmission mechanism produces high torque


A significant feature of the FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS is its flexible element,
which is laminated with thin square stainless steel sheets. The holes A, C and B,
D in the diagram are bolted at the hub and spacer, respectively. The torque is
directly transmitted as tension from A to B and C to D through the straight side
of the flexible element. Complex stress is not generated at the square flexible element, and the torque transmission capacity of FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS therefore increases.

Simple construction ensures good durability


FORM-FLEX double flexing couplings are made of three principal components :
hubs, spacer, and flexible elements. Their very simple construction results in extrahigh torque capability and practically unlimited durability.

Most driving equipment requires the absorption of axial misalignment


(end float). FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS permit great axial misalignment with minimum end thrust. The graphs show the degrees of maximum allowable axial misalignment in relation to various amounts of
angular misalignment. Good durability of the couplings is secured by
working within the indicated limits. FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS can
satisfy NEMA Standards MG1-14.37 without the use of a button or
shoulder, which restricts axial misalignment. (FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS do not require any accessory equipment to correct misalignment in the thrust direction when the motor starts.)

Coupling size

Allowances for axial and parallel misalignment of couplings depend on the number of bolts in
the flexible element and operating speed. Axial and parallel misalignment are in inverse proportion; in other words, when one increases, the other decreases. Therefore, the two should be taken
into consideration concurrently. The parallel misalignment between the driving and driven shafts
is absorbed by the angle () of the flexible element, as shown in the following diagram.

Twin Shaft Coupling


A semi-floating shaft coupling is combined with a floating shaft
coupling to make the twin shaft coupling, which is suitable for a
long-span connection between two pieces of equipment.

A reference for the usage of these couplings is shown in the left


illustraion. In this case, the shaft of the coupling is supported with
a single bearing, arranged as closely as possible to the outer sprocket
or pulley. The flex elements permit radial loads as does A3.

A7 E7 G7

Semi-floating Shaft Couplings

These couplings are preferred in cases where power is transmitted


between machines separated by some distance.

A5 A6 E5 E6 G5 G6

Full Floating Shaft Couplings

These are required for mounting between two pieces of equipment


having two bearings each. The two inner bearings must be positioned at an appropriate distance from the hub.

AX A4 AB E4 EB G4 GB

Double Flexing Couplings

The single flexing coupling is for use in the case where shafts are
supported by three bearings. The coupling shown in the diagram
on the right above is suitable for use in cases subject to great radial
loads. To connect the servo-motor used in NC machine tools with
the ball screw, an exceptional usage of the coupling as shown in the
diagram below on the right is possible.
In this case, parallel misalignment is controlled by fitting the motor
in a line with the casing; the coupling is used mainly for the
absorption of angular and axial misalignment. This may overload
the element; therefore, in this case, it is necessary to use a square
element which absorbs misalignment, such as that in the FORMFLEX COUPLING.

Table 1. Load coefficient according to type of machinery

Load coefficient is an important consideration when selecting a coupling. Standard load coefficients for comparatively smoothly
operating drives such as electric motors, and steam and gas turbines are as given below. These load coefficients may change
depending on the application and/or conditions under which the equipment is operated. Therefore, the load coefficients should
be used strictly as general criteria.

The single flexing coupling is designed to compensate for an angular misalignment of up to 1maximum. It can operate at high speeds and under heavy loads
while supporting radial loads. Typical installations include coupling of shafts, one
of which is suppoted by bearings at two points and the other supported by only
one bearing, as seen in motor generator sets.

FLOATING SHAFT COUPLING

A5

Semi-floating shaft coupling

A6

This type is a combination of the semi-floating shaft coupling


and A5 or A6. When it is necessary to install an intermediate
bearing because of rotation speed and span, use of this type
eliminates the need for a design using large sizes.

Bearing
section

Twin shaft coupling

A 5/A 7

Basically the same as A5,


but a thrust-absorbing
mechanism (thrust button) which bears the
floating shaft weight may
be required.

This coupling is joined with one solid shaft end and one hollow shaft end mounted with a single flexing unit. The use of
this coupling for a line drive having multiple shaft spans allows
a reduced number of bearings. Moreover, the flexibility of the
flexible element minimizes the load on the bearings. For a
multiple-shaft span system, at least one A5 or one A6 should
be used. Let us know complete size requirements when placing
your order.

Bearing
section

Semi-floating shaft coupling

A7

This is a long-span coupling welded to a hollow shaft. The


hub should be positioned appropriately close to the bearing.
The intermediate floating shaft must not be supported by the
bearing.

Application

The floating shaft coupling transmits power between widely separated machines
or where large parallel misalignment exists. Allowable rotation speed is determined according to the span and balance of the couplings. Balancing is necessary for high-speed operation and/or for long shafts. Floating shaft couplings are
available in the following type designations for various applications.

For printing machines:


Used to couple the units of rotary press machines. Shear-pin
type couplings are used to protect against overload.

For cooling towers:


The motor is isolated from the humid, corrosive atmosphere
and is coupled with the gear box below the fan via a floating
shaft coupling. If the fan diameter is large, a twin-shaft coupling may be used.

For machine tools:


Used to couple the servo-motor with the ball screw of NC
lathes or machining centers, and the motor shaft with the main
shaft.

For pumps:
The spacer-type coupling is necessary for easy maintenance. For
use in heated water and oil pumps, types with larger misalignment absorption capacity are more advantageous.

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS

Combination using highly elastic coupling:


Used in marine engines (from VULKAN catalogue).

Coupling with torque sensor:


A torque meter is built into the coupling; used for testing
equipment.

Insulating coupling:
Used to protect large-scale
generators from damage due
to shaft current.

Coupling for fly-wheels:


Features construction capable
of withstanding the reversal
and vibration torques of
engine drives and reciprocal
compressors.

Clutch coupling:
Used for dual drive of turbine and motor blowers, etc., and for
stand-by drive.

Shear-pin type coupling:


Used in press-forging machines,
generators, etc. It is backlashfree, resulting in excellent fracture accuracy.

Coupling with brake drum:


This space-saving type has a
built-in brake drum. A type
with a built-in brake disk is
also available.

Coupling with torque relay:


Used with press-forging machines and paper-working machines
to prevent overload.

Double-element coupling:
Absorbs large axial misalignment occurring in turbines.

Spline type coupling:


Absorbs large axial misalignment occurring in turbines
and hot-gas fans. The spline
is coated to give lower sliding resistance.

(a) Fix a dial gauge on one side of hub, rotate hub, find minimum reading
on dial gauge, and set gauge at zero.
(b) Rotate coupling side with dial gauge 360
and readjust dial gauge so it
shows smallest deflection reading. Peripheral face deflection for an angular misalignment of 0.1
is as shown in the table below.
(c) Peripheral section of dial gauge may show abnormal deflection at
through-hole area of hub. This is due to flaring of flange during working. Avoid this area when reading gauge.

3. Angular misalignment (Fig.2)

Shift equipment units to permit coupling in the correct position. Set both
flange faces (G dimensions) within0.25 mm, except in special cases.

2. Distance between shaft ends

Note: When hub has been fabricated by interference fit, heat it in a 90-120
oil bath and fit it to the shaft. Never apply heat locally; it may cause distortion.

S: Allowable length of shaft projection when shaft diameter is smaller than element bore at a maximum
of 2mm.

Angular misalignment

There are many possible causes for misalignment of shafts. Initial


alignment may be altered by temperature variations, bearing
wear, foundation settling, etc. In general, however, careful initial
alignment of shafts increases coupling life. When initial alignment is incorrect and the coupling is heavily stressed due to
torque or other forces, it will have little reserve for absorption of
misalignment stress; this may result in reduced coupling service
life.
The above diagram shows various types of shaft misalignment.
In parallel misalignment, two shafts have parallel axes, but are
not coaxial. In angular misalignment, the axes of the two shafts
intersect. The state occurring due to axial misalignment is called
end float
.

Parallel misalignment

Misalignment

(Spacer in stock)

In many cases, the misalignment in FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS is the result of a complex combination of these types
of misalignment. The FORM-FLEX COUPLING permits
angular misalignment of up to 1
per flexible element (in the case
of a four-bolt coupling). The allowance for end float depends on
the size of the coupling; however, the FORM-FLEX COUPLING permits sufficient end float to cause only a small degree
of thrust.
When the occurrence of misalignment during operation is
inevitable, it may be necessary to offset the coupling.

Note:
When inserting bolt, do not force it, or the thick
washer may intrude into the large hole on the
flange. Fasten all nylon nuts using the rated
torque. Bolts may be inserted in the direction
which makes the job easiest.

Angular and parallel misalignment

When coupling sections incur accidental damage during installation, emergency repair is possible using spacers in stock (see Fig.4)

6. Emergency repair using spacers in stock (Fig.4).

For the requirement of replacing all the


parts, elements, bolts, nuts and washers are
available as a package.

Special note: To assure the unlimited service life of the coupling, recheck
it for parallel and angular misalignment after a short period (1-2 hours) of
actual operation. At that time, refasten bolts and nuts using the rated
torque.
Test results indicate that the permissible maximum number of times nylon
nuts may be unfastened and refastened is 15, but it is recommended that
the number of times not exceed 10. If this process is repeated 10 times or
more, spare nuts should be prepared.

5. Assemble the coupling using the exploded diagrams on


page 6 as a guide

1. Confirm that shaft and bore have been completely deburred


and that key is properly fitted with shaft and hub.

When the distance between shaft ends is less than dimension D of the coupling used, adjust shaft to required dimension D by making the shaft project (Fig.1). When shaft diameter is larger than the coupling bore, adjust
shaft projection to within the range S indicated on the chart below.

4. Parallel misalignment (Fig.3)


(a) To measure parallel misalignment of shafts, fix a dial gauge on the driving side hub and, while rotating the driving shaft, read the dial gauge
at the periphery of the driven hub. A parallel misalignment of 2 mm per
1,000 mm distance between flange faces (D) results in an angular misalignment of 0.1
.
(b) Recheck angular misalignment and verify that it is sufficiently small.

Correct, careful assembly and centering at the initial stage enables couplings
to provide maximum performance, compensates for misalignment, and
increases service life.

with performance and size data for FORM-FLEX COUPLINGS in order that you may better select the most appropriate type. We accept requests for consultation regarding
application of selected types shown in this brochure, as well
as special designs and uses, but it is impossible for us to
actually test our couplings with each piece of equipment
under actual operating conditions. Therefore, we regret that
we are unable to guarantee the performance of our couplings
in practical operation after purchase. We do, however,
gurantee that our products have been manufactured and
shipped under proper quality control. We guarantee our prod-

ucts against defects in manufacture and materials for one


year after shipping. If such defect should appear, please
return the part in question for inspection, based on which we
will determine whether the guarantee is applicable. If we
agree that the part is defective, our responsibility is limited to
repairing or replacing the part in question. Defects arising
from secondary working without our express agreement,
replacement of parts with parts other than those designated
by us, repairs, improper hahdling, or accidents are excluded
from this guarantee. Manufacture of products shown in this
brochure may be discontinued and/or the contents of this
brochure changed without notice.
