Installation Errors Part 1- Coupling Care and Balance
Observing a training class of new mechanics can sometimes be a stressful proposition for a former field Millwright. Especially when said millwright has control issues. As part of our Precision Shaft Alignment Training, the trainees move from the classroom setting into the field to practice what they have learned. Transferring the knowledge gained in a…Read More
Are Flexible Couplings Designed to be Misaligned?
A common misbelief that occasionally comes up in our precision shaft alignment training classes is that, elastomer insert flexible couplings are designed to allow misalignment between rotating machinery shafts. This is not the case. Although this type of coupling may be more forgiving to the effects of misalignment, they are definitely not intended to be…Read More
