Dodge Moment couplings are specifically designed to make the rigid connection between the output shaft of a gearbox and head pulley. Engineered to meet rigorous application requirements, these couplings are capable of handling both the required application torque and the bending moment forces of the suspended weight of a drive package, including the gearbox, motor, high-speed coupling, and swing base. This design allows for an alignment-free drive by eliminating the process of aligning the gearbox assembly to the head pulley shaft. The male and female hubs are manufactured from 4140 alloy steel and are assembled with Grade 8 bolts.
Information needed for Dodge engineering to select the appropriate Moment coupling for an application:
• Power / Torque / Speed Requirements
• Driver and Driven Shaft Sizes
• Overhung Load
• Length of Lever Arm
• Application Specifics: Type of Operation; Required Stops and Starts; Shock Loads and Vibration
