Miniature Fairloc Bellows Couplings
SDP/SI, a leader in comprehensive mechanical solutions for critical motion control applications is pleased to introduce a new line of couplings. SDP/SI's Miniature Fairloc Bellows Couplings are zero backlash, easy to install and corrects for angular and parallel axis misalignment. Readily repositioned, the miniature couplings dampen vibration and noise making them a perfect choice for many applications, including medical device manufacturers.
Because of its compact design and high-quality build the miniature coupling series "S50FP9(-,M)FB..., is durable and allows connections in restricted spaces. Both inch and metric dimensioned parts are offered and a variety of bore combinations are available, ranging from 1 mm to 3 mm and .0325" to .125". The hubs feature the unique Fairloc design, capable of maintaining shaft alignment when others fail.
Miniature Fairloc Bellows Couplings are the newest addition to the extensive coupling line offered by SDP/SI. Both rigid and flexible varieties are available, including modular bellows, beam, disk, jaw, Oldham, and slit types. To assist designers in locating the perfect co...
Miniature Fairloc Bellows Couplings are the newest addition to the extensive coupling line offered by SDP/SI. Both rigid and flexible varieties are available, including modular bellows, beam, disk, jaw, Oldham, and slit types. To assist designers in locating the perfect coupling for an application, SDP/SI has developed a coupling selector tool available at the website.
Miniature Couplings are Zero Backlash, Dampens Vibration and are Easy to Install in Small Spaces

Which Drive System is Best for Your Application - It Depends
A common question that arises when designing an application involving power transmission is, “how will this system transfer motion?” Two of the most popular answers to this question are: a Gear Drive System or a Belt and Pulley Drive System. Here at SDP/SI our application engineers are asked “which is better?” And just as with everything else in engineering, It Depends. In this whitepaper we explore both options, the advantages, disadvantages, and circumstances that are better for one over the other. Get the information you need and start designing!
