Beam Coupling Manufacturing & Configurations

Manufacturing

Our beam couplings are produced using either aluminum or stainless steel using various machining services; however, specialty materials and services are also available for custom components. Multiple attachment styles are also available for added functionality. Torque range, bore ranges, operating temperatures, speed, and other performance factors will vary depending on the configuration chosen.

For more details on available coupling configurations, review the list below or to a side-by-side comparison, view our Standard Coupling Comparison Guide below.

Configurations

A Series

The "A" series flexible beam coupling is perfect for general purpose and light to medium duty. An economical, maintenance-free coupling, used in a variety of applications such as encoder/resolver applications, low torque pump, lead screw, and various other applications.

Beam Coupling A Series

DS Series

DS (Double Start) series beam couplings are low inertia, high performance, aluminum coupling, that utilizes a helical double start technology. The DS series is torsionally stiffer and higher torque capacity than the "A" series. They are lighter and feature lower inertia than the "H" series.

Beam Coupling DS Series

H Series

The H series beam coupling is a stainless steel version of the "A" series, with higher torque capacity and torsional stiffness as well as increased fatigue resistance. The H series is ideally suited for situations requiring a heavy-duty coupling for pump, lead screws, and positioning systems. Also for process equipment in industrial situations where a rugged, tough, long lasting coupling is needed.

Beam Coupling H Series

MCA Series

MCA series is a general-purpose aluminum flexible beam coupling, used in applications where more parallel misalignment is required. The MCA series has a large range of shaft sizes, with optional keyways.

Beam Coupling MCA Series

MC7 Series

The MC7 series beam coupling is a stainless steel version of the "MCA (C)" series, with higher torque capacity and torsional stiffness plus increased fatigue resistance due to the material used. The MC7 is a rugged, tough, long-lasting coupling that can be used for pumps, conveyor systems, or industrial processing equipment, where absolute reliability is required.

Beam Coupling MC7 Series

W Series

W series flexible beam couplings are excellent for general purpose, light to medium duty. An economical, maintenance-free coupling, used in a variety of applications. Available in either 7075-T6 aluminum alloy or 17-4PH stainless steel. The stainless-steel version offers a higher torque capacity and torsional stiffness as well as increased fatigue resistance.
