Couplings
Bringing the solutions closer to you. Our large volume of well-stocked inventory is backed by an efficient logistic management system that ensure the right solution is provided to our customers at the right time and at the right place.

 

In power transmission, couplings are mechanical elements used to connect two drive elements together for the transfer of torque from one element to another. A coupling connects both elements, usually shafts, that are in rotational movement, while also allowing a certain degree of misalignment, end movement, or both.

Couplings can be either rigid or flexible. Rigid couplings are more commonly used when two shafts are co-axial, or lie on the same axis as each other. Flexible couplings are used where there is less chance of co-axiality or when shocks are likely to occur during transmission of torque.

In industrial machinery, couplings serve the following purposes:

  • To connect two shafts of separately manufactured units, for example, a motor and a generator.
  • To also allow for disconnection of the shafts for maintenance or repair operations or replacement of parts
  • To connect both the driving and the driven part.
  • Allow misalignment of the shafts and to reduce shock loads at the meeting point of both shafts

At SLS, we offer a broad variety of both rigid and flexible couplings for a variety of industries and applications:

  • Gear Coupling
  • Grid Coupling
  • Elastomeric
  • Fluid Coupling
  • Pin and Bush
  • Jaw Coupling
  • Tyre Coupling

For reliability, quality and fuss-free maintenance, SLS provides the coupling solutions to increase your equipment uptime and lower your total cost of ownership. Leveraging on our partnership with Rexnord and Falk, the leaders in coupling manufacturing for 80 years, our range of specialised couplings broadens to include:

Rexnord Omega®, Thomas®, and Addax® couplings, and Falk™ Wrapflex®, Steelflex®, and Lifelign® couplings
