When the application requires a direct and solid shaft connection and that shaft misalignments during operation are minimal, then your ABR solid or rigid type couplings may be used. To suit shafts from 6mm up to 50mm in diameter as standard.
A good compression-type coupling or rigid coupling since it is sometimes termed has no flexibility but can effectively be used for connecting two shafts to create a long lasting joint. The solid coupling is generally designed to manage to transmitting the full torque load capability of the shaft.
Ever-power stocks a wide variety of solid (muff) style shaft coupling for fast easy shaft connection. Perfect for 6mm to 50mm diameter shafts, the anodised steel construction is designed for arduous use. Simply release the clamp design design by detatching the four bolts, match the coupling and reapply the bolts to a set torque to achieve reliable shaft connection. Keeping tight tolerances to the concentricity on the bore, makes the Ever-power rigid coupling an ideal emergency repair or prototype connection.
By precisely aligning the two shafts and holding them firmly in place, rigid couplings help to maximize performance and raise the expected life of the machine. These rigid couplings can be found in two basic designs to fit the demands of different applications. Sleeve-style couplings will be the least expensive and easiest to make use of, whilst clamped or compression rigid couplings come in two parts and fit collectively around the shafts to create a sleeve. Both types can be found from Ever-power suiting shaft sizes from 6mm up to 50mm in diameter.
One particular and Two piece ABR rigid couplings – Two distinct designs are available. The main one and two piece series couplers possess superior holding power and keep maintaining alignment. The one piece versions are supplied with four clamping screws. Both piece split version couplers can be installed and eliminated without machine dis-assembly. Supplied with eight clamping screws, they provide reliable holding power and maintain alignment.
Precision Rigid couplings are available as regular in aluminium alloy and stainless steel. For smaller sized shaft sizes the new SC series clamping method that ensures the concentricity of the clamped shaft. Suited to shaft sizes from 3mm to 15mm diameter, including imperial and custom made formats, make the new SC series well suited for applications where high torque and excellent torsional stiffness are required.

Ever-power’s Rigid couplings are ribbed-type compression couplings that are recommended for emergency and regular assistance in heavily coupling China loaded shafts. These couplings are bored true to shaft size, and the halves are separated through the boring operation to allow for clamping when the halves are drawn collectively.
