The “Schmidt” Offset Couplings feature needle bearings with internal micro-poly lubrication that do not require periodic maintenance. With applications for high quality printing, embossing, paper converting, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and automated assembly systems, these Schmidt Offset Couplings transmit constant angular velocity and torque in a range of parallel shaft misalignments, without maintenance on parallel offset shafts.
Schmidt Offset Couplings are a proven design and the sealed bearing feature with no lube fittings makes for a cleaner coupling setup. The new design keeps out contaminants and foreign matter, enabling the couplings to be used in less than ideal operating environments .
Schmidt Offset Couplings handle high amounts of parallel offset up to 17 in. and are available with torque capacities up to 459,000 in.-lb. They impose no side loads on shafts or bearings and eliminate radial shaft vibrations.
