What are the benefits of claw couplings and where are they used?

Features and benefits of claw couplings

  • Claw couplings have a short overall length, meaning that they do not take up a large amount of space on the shaft. 
  • The elastic element dampens vibration and cushions shock loads, helping to extend the life of surrounding equipment. 
  • This coupling can compensate for angular, parallel and axial shaft misalignment.
  • The maintenance free design of claw couplings means that downtime and labour requirements are greatly reduced. 
  • This coupling is suitable for use in a wide range of applications, across many industries.
