*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-C is -20°C to 80°C.

※ The shaft's slip torque may be smaller than the coupling's rated torque depending on the shaft bore. MORMOR-CMOR-K

*2: These are values with max. bore diameter.

Slip torque

As in the table below, the clamping type MOR-C has different slip torque according to the bore diameter. Take care during selection.

These are test values based on the conditions of shaft dimensional allowance: h7, hardness: 34-40 HRC, and screw tightening torque of the values described in MOR-C dimension tables. They are not guaranteed values.
Slip torque changes with usage conditions. Carry out tests under conditions similar to actual conditions in advance.

  • 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.

Precautions for Use

In case of mounting on D-cut shaft, be careful about the position of the D-cut surface of the shaft. ⇒Mounting and Maintenance
There are sizes where the hex socket head bolt exceeds the outer diameter of the coupling and the rotating diameter is larger than the outer diameter. Please be careful of the interference of coupling.


Selection Based on Shaft Diameter and Rated Torque

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

Selection Example

In case of selected parameters of shaft diameter of φ 6 and load torque of 0.3 N•m, the selected size is MOR-15.

Eccentric Reaction Force

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.

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.
