Clamp-Style Hubs are the most popular hub style used on Zero-Max Composite Disc (CD) Floating Shaft Couplings.  This solution provides a zero backlash and torsionally stiff spacer coupling that provides superior misalignment capacity for applications where the drive and load components require further spacing from each other. The unique design delivers zero-backlash, excellent misalignment capacity and can be custom manufactured to any length requirement.

Zero-Max’s Floating Shaft Couplings provide excellent support for the floating shaft component with minimal radial loads on the connected equipment and bearings. Precision hardware and precise machining ensure smooth and accurate operation of the floating shaft spacer coupling.

  • Zero Backlash
  • Torsionally Stiff
  • High Misalignment Capacity
  • Excellent for Reversing Loads
  • Very Low Reaction Loads
  • Available in Aluminum, Steel, or Stainless Steel
 

Clamp-Style vs Set-Screw Composite Disc Couplings

We offer flexible floating shaft composite disc couplings in a broad range of bore sizes, materials, and torque ratings, making it easy to find the right fit for your application. Some of the features that separate clamp-style and set-screw floating shaft CD couplings include:

Clamp-Style

Clamp-Style Hub Floating Shaft Couplings are the preferred solution for connecting the coupling hub to the shaft. Clamp-Style Hubs engage the shaft’s entire circumference providing more holding power with easier installation that will not damage the shaft.  These hubs are available with or without keyways, depending on preference and application.

Set-Screw

Set-Screw Hub Floating Shaft Couplings provide the traditional method for connecting the coupling hub to the shaft. Set-screw hubs require a keyway on the shaft and in the coupling, so a key can be used to transmit power. This “traditional” way of connecting couplings to shafts offers good holding power and easy installation.
