*1: Values with no load fluctuation and rotation in a single direction. If there is large load fluctuation, or both normal and reverse rotation, select a size with some margin. If ambient temperature exceeds 30°C, be sure to correct the rated torque and max. torque with temperature correction factor shown in the following table. The allowable operating temperature of MOR is -20°C to 80°C.
*2: These are values with max. bore diameter.

◎: Excellent ○: Very good

  • This is an oldham type flexible coupling.
  • Slippage of hubs and a spacer allows large eccentricity and angular misalignment to be accepted.
  • The eccentric reaction generated by misalignment is small and the burden on the shaft is reduced.
  • The simple structure allows the unit to be easily assembled.

Selection Based on Shaft Diameter and Rated Torque

The area bounded by the shaft diameter and rated torque indicates the selection size.

MOR/MOR-C/MOR-K/MOR-CK_TTechnical Information

These are initial slippage load values of hubs and a spacer.
After running-in operation, the slippage load becomes small, the load on the shaft due to misalignment becomes lowered, and the burden on the shaft bearing is reduced.

MOR/MOR-C/MOR-K/MOR-CK_TTechnical Information

Change in static torsional stiffness due to temperature

This is a value under the condition where the static torsional stiffness at 20°C is 100%.
Changes in the static torsion spring constant within the operating temperature are shown in the graph.
Before using the unit, be aware of the deterioration of responsiveness.
