Which Oldham joint for ax building? Alternatives?

10/06/2019 at 12:33


We are using a motor Engine: 1.1 kW (1.5HP) 230V and 1420 rpm Gearbox reducer whose output is 28.4 rpm.

We are thinking about the <b>Oldham joint</b> to connect motor and ax, but, since there are several different types and prices for this piece, do you know which one is best to connect to this kind of motor? Are there eventually alternatives?

We are building a shredder and extruder along a single ax.

🙂 Thank you for the support!

Oldham couplers are great for high speed low torque applications where there is quite a lot of misalignment. For the shredder look for the jaw/spider type, these are available in bigger sizes and can handle more torque. The duplex chain couplings are also good for this sort of thing.

Ok! Thank you
