Zero-Max’s composite disc floating shaft couplings provide exceptional torsional stiffness and zero backlash performance, yet still provide superior misalignment capacity. These unique composite disc couplings also provide excellent support for the floating shaft component and help minimize radial loads on the connected equipment and bearings. Precision machining and precision hardware (included) ensure smooth and accurate operation, even at high speeds. 

Floating Shaft Spacer Couplings

For long spans between motion components, Zero-Max floating shaft spacer couplings may be the answer you need. We offer spacer couplings in aluminum, steel, and stainless steel, with A, B, and clamp style hubs, making it easy to find the right fit for your application.

Features & Benefits of Floating Shaft Couplings

Zero-Max offers composite disc floating shaft couplings with set screw hubs or clamp type hubs. Both coupling styles provide numerous useful features and benefits.
  • Zero backlash performance
  • High torsional stiffness
  • Excellent for reversing loads
  • Very low reaction loads thanks to misalignment capacity

Dynamic Balancing for Floating Shaft Couplings

The close tolerances at which we manufacture our composite disc floating shaft couplings, along with the composite disc pack itself, make these devices especially well-suited to high speed and/or long-span applications. However, dynamic balancing of the floating shaft coupling may sometimes be required.

Coupling Misalignment

In most cases, the misalignment capacity of our composite disc floating shaft couplings is related to the speed at which they operate and the mass of the floating shaft itself (governed by its diameter and length). By reducing the allowable misalignment, and therefore the stress on the disc, the disc pack can better support and stabilize the floating shaft. This ultimately results in smoother operation, less vibration of the connected equipment, and longer coupling life.
