The coupling for maximum torque

The Omniflex offers oustanding shaft misalignment compensation in a  compact dimensional envelope. The torsionally stiff and robust shaft coupling designs have been developed for maximum torque requirements and for the toughest cycle operations. The precision couplings are ideal for industrial heavy duty applications such as press drives, forge rollers, test units for large-scale gearboxes and applications in process engineering.

The shaft coupling with high axial stiffness

The axially stiff coupling Loewe GK is ideal for torque applications where the coupling has to resist axial motion. The combination of kinematic properties permits additional generous radial and angular misalignment. The series of linear couplings was developed for the precise transmission of pure push and pull loads. Based on the function principle of the Loewe GK, we have developed a whole series of applications, for example for valve triggering, pick and place tasks and for printed circuit board machines.

The precision coupling for an extreme shaft offset in a small D.B.S.E. (distance between shaft ends) 

The Schmidt coupling offsets like no other coupling. Many engineers come across the familiar problem of shaft misalignments within driven shaft applications. In some cases the parallel offset of the shafts are above and beyond the capabilities of standard shaft couplings and can often result in punitive drive shaft length, or elaborate mechanical solutions to move driver and driven shafts in unison, to overcome the offset.

The compact precision coupling with high performance. Semiflex® is a torsionally stiff, precision coupling that is without radial restoring forces. Apart from compensating for axial and angular misalignment, the coupling offers high radial misalignment capacity in conjunction with a compact design. The torsionally stiff coupling compensates for misalignment without restoring forces by means of a unique system of two pairs of parallel links arranged at 90° to each other. The angular synchronisation of the connected shafts always remains constant regardless of the misalignment.

The perfect shaft coupling for highly dynamic applications. If you currently use servomotors or stepper motors within your applications the Spinplus shaft coupling is worth considering. The new shaft coupling has been specifically designed to ensure high torisonal stiffness and reliable bidirectional torque transmission. 

The Spinplus precision coupling has been developed specifically for modern servomotor and stepper motor  applications. Extremely compact dimensions combined with a small moment of inertia gives the backlash-free couplings decisive advantages for dynamic drive systems.

The Control flex shaft coupling has been designed and developed specifically with shaft encoders in mind. The compact design consists of two anodised aluminium hubs and a unique middle element that transmits torque at constant velocity.  Most importantly, the unique and integral torque element accommodates all kinds of shaft misalignment but also exhibits very low parallel, angular and skewed restoring forces, making it ideal for both encoder and tacho use.

Controlflex is easy to install, can act as a electrically insulator between shafts and as standard are balanced for high rpm applications up to 25.


The Schmidt-Kupplung is a compact, torsionally stiff performance shaft coupling that compensates for large and variable parallel shaft offset without side loads during operation. Through its modular construction both torque transmission and radial offset capacity can be optimised for each application. So if you are a mechanical design engineer, don‘t reinvent the wheel and let us broaden your shaft coupling knowledge capability. Just give us a call to see how we can help with your drive shaft connection.

Schmidt Couplings

The New Spinplus - Light and slim, it is the ideal precision coupling for highly dynamic applications. Whether it is to be precisely positioned, assembled or measured the new Spinplus is the ideal coupling solution.

Lowest moment of inertia and extremely compact - When developing the Spinplus, the main focus was to achieve the lowest possible moment of inertia for the coupling. The unique function of the internal element manufactured through the modern MIM process, allows displacement compensation from one plain. As a result, a technical advantage is made and allows for a very compact design, capable of transmitting high torque, combined with a minimised mass moment of inertia.

Precise, torsionally stiff and backlash-free  It is all in one package. FEM-optimised function element, allows high torque transmission, maximum torsional rigidity and universal displacement capacity.

Innovative hub design - optimised to reduce moment of inertia - The newly developed and innovative hub design highlights further optimisation for the lowest moment of inertia concept.  The clamp hubs reduce the mass moment of inertia significantly compared to conventional hubs. To adapt to the respective application requirements, two hub versions have therefore been designed. Version A provides the lowest possible mass moment of inertia, Version B is designed to accommodate large shaft diameters and focuses on the most compact dimensions.

Peter Wright, the Schmidt Kupplung sales engineer at ABSSAC says “Engineers needn’t reinvent the wheel with their transmission challenges. There are 2D and 3D CAD format drawings available for all model types.”
