Product description


Elastomer jaw couplings GN 2241 can transmit very high torques while compensating for shaft misalignments and runout tolerances. They are preferred in applications where the focus lies on pure torque and power transmission.

The choice of three coupling spiders with different hardness values allows the properties of the coupling to be optimally matched to the specific requirements. The use of grub screws for clamping and the simple plug-in installation make jaw couplings very easy to assemble.

With the bore code K, the keyway is always integrated into both bores d2 and d3.

Temperature correction factors

If the ambient temperature is greater than 30 °C, the rated torque and the maximum torque must be adjusted using the temperature correction factors.

Misalignment and runout tolerances

Like all mechanical parts, shafts are subjected to manufacturing and assembly tolerances that generally cannot be entirely eliminated even with extensive technical measures.
If these deviations are not taken into account in the design, the result can be vibrations, running noises, and wear or damage to the shafts and their bearings.
Suitable couplings not only are able to effectively compensate for misalignment and runout errors, they also greatly simplify the assembly process, thereby reducing the overall labor required.
Shaft misalignment and runout errors can vary in nature and should always be taken into consideration when selecting the appropriate coupling.

Error type

Misalignment diagram

The axes of the shafts are in fact parallel, but they are offset laterally and do not line up.

Misalignment diagram_Lateral

The axes of the shafts do not lie in the same plane; they meet at a certain angle.

Misalignment diagram_Angular

The shafts move axially along the axis of rotation.

Misalignment diagram_Axial

The shafts move radially out of the center of the axis of rotation.

Misalignment diagram_Runout

Shaft insertion depth

For correct fastening of the coupling hubs, the shaft must be installed according to the recommended shaft insertion depth l2. The shaft insertion depth l2 is specified in the standard sheet of the respective coupling.
If the insertion depth is too low, the shaft could slip out of the coupling, or the clamping hub could break. If the shaft is inserted too far, this can cause interference within the coupling, leading to damage.

Static torsional stiffness and temperature

The diagrams show the change in static torsional stiffness within the permissible operating temperature range, under the assumption that the static torsional stiffness at 20 °C is 100 percent. The torsional stiffness of the couplings decreases with increasing temperature.

Restoring force – Eccentricity

When the shaft ends are installed in eccentric arrangements, the coupling constantly attempts to return to its neutral position. The resulting force is referred to as restoring force.
If the couplings are installed with the lowest possible eccentricity, the resulting restoring forces are lower. This also reduces the force acting on the shaft bearing.
