KBK Servo Insert Couplings
Servo Insert Couplings are coupling types which should be used in applications where vibrations and crushes may appear. The dampening attributes of those couplings are caused by the spider element which is positioned between the two hubs. This spider element is available in different shore hardnesses. Depending on the requirements it is proposed to use a spider element with low dampening properties for applications with low vibrations and crushes and to use a spider element with high dampening properties for application with high grades of vibrations or crushes.
Another advantage of using servo insert couplings is that they are pluggable, so they can be assembled quickly and easily even under difficult assembly conditions. The possible varieties of the hub style include shaft fixing with set screws, with clamp hubs and with outer conical hubs. As you can find it with other coupling types too, the version with clamp hubs is the most popular with the servo insert couplings as well because they ensure the fastest assembly/dismantling without leaving trays on the shafts.
