A coupling is a device used to connect two shafts together at their ends for the purpose of transmitting power. The primary purpose of couplings is to join two pieces of rotating equipment while permitting some degree of misalignment or end movement or both. In a more general context, a coupling can also be a mechanical device that serves to connect the ends of adjacent parts or objects. Couplings do not normally allow disconnection of shafts during operation, however there are torque limiting couplings which can slip or disconnect when some torque limit is exceeded. Selection, installation and maintenance of couplings can lead to reduced maintenance time and maintenance cost. CBC is Australia’s biggest and best distributor of couplings. We partner with leading brands to bring you the best couplings from around the world including Falk, Transfluid, Fenner, Rexnord, Timken Quick-Flex, Martin, David Brown and Renold. We stock a wide range of couplings including chain, cone ring, HRC, fluid, gear, grid, jaw, Quickflex, rigid, tyre and Wrapflex couplings, as well as coupling guards and shaft collars and so much more.
