In the industrial sector, coupling is an essential process to ensure the continuity of production. Discover our Coupling Service offered by Atelier Sauvage.
This is the mechanical assembly of two elements, allowing the transmission of force or movement. This step may seem insignificant, but it is important for the productivity of the company.
There are different types of couplings, each with its own advantages and disadvantages.
Rigid couplings are the most commonly used because they allow for efficient and precise power transmission. However, they are also very rigid, which can result in significant mechanical stresses.
Elastic couplings, on the other hand, offer some flexibility. This allows for the reduction of stresses on the mechanical components. They are therefore particularly well-suited to machines subject to vibrations or shocks. However, their power transmission is less precise than that of rigid couplings.
Regardless of the type used, it is crucial to regularly maintain couplings. Indeed, a failure of the coupling can lead to a complete stoppage of production. This stoppage could cause significant losses for the company!
Maintenance includes checking for wear on the elements, replacing defective parts, and checking the alignment of the axes. Poor alignment can result in significant mechanical stresses. This can accelerate the wear of the coupling and surrounding mechanical components.
