X Slot Shaft Couplings

Abssac's X-Slot shaft couplings bridge the gap and offer a cost-effective balance between couplings that are too stiff radially and those not stiff enough torsionally for servo type applications.

The X-Series coupling incorporates two flexible element sets-combining greater end-to-end rotational accuracy with radial accuracy in one design. In durability testing, the couplings have been subjected to parallel offsets of up to five times the rated value and tested to failure. Even when tested for tens of millions of cycles at these exaggerated offsets the coupling exhibited an exceptional performance capability.

The X-Series coupling incorporates two flexible element sets-combining greater end-to-end rotational accuracy with radial accuracy in one design. In durability testing, the couplings have been subjected to parallel offsets of up to five times the rated value and tested to failure. Even when tested for tens of millions of cycles at these exaggerated offsets the coupling exhibited an exceptional performance capability. Ideally suits shaft sizes of 3mm to 20mm.

X-Series couplings are available in six outside diameter sizes, from 15mm to 50mm and any bore combination between the listed minimum and maximum. The flexible shaft coupling is available in aluminum and can be ordered with bores that are millimeter, imperial, or a combination of the two.
