Universal Coupling for Shaft of Actuators in Mechatronic Systems
The design of shaft coupling ensuring serviceability of an actuator under varying conditions is presented in this paper. The driving half coupling is an eccentric balanced over the axis of rotation. The torque of the coupling is determined by the parameters of the flexible ring and eccentricity. When the parameters of coupling are properly selected, the transfer coefficient of vibration can be reduced markedly.
