When the application requires a direct and solid shaft connection and that shaft misalignments during operation are minimal, then the ABR solid or rigid type couplings can be used. To match 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 may effectively be used to connect two shafts to make a long term joint. The solid coupling is generally designed to be capable of transmitting the full torque load capability of the shaft.
Ever-power stocks an array of solid (muff) style shaft coupling for fast easy shaft connection. Perfect for 6mm to 50mm size shafts, the anodised steel construction is made for arduous use. Just release the clamp design design by removing the four bolts, suit the coupling and then reapply the bolts to a fixed 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 keeping them firmly set up, rigid couplings help maximize performance and raise the expected life of the device. These rigid couplings can be found in two basic styles to fit the desires of different applications. Sleeve-style couplings are the most affordable and easiest to make use of, whilst clamped or compression rigid couplings can be found in two parts and match collectively around the shafts to create a sleeve. Both types are available from Ever-power suiting shaft sizes from 6mm up to 50mm in size.
A single and Two piece ABR rigid couplings – Two distinct designs are available. The one and two piece series couplers possess superior holding power and keep maintaining alignment. The single piece versions are supplied with four clamping screws. The two piece split edition couplers can be installed and removed without machine dis-assembly. Given eight clamping screws, they provide reliable holding power and maintain alignment.
Precision Rigid couplings can be found as standard in aluminium alloy and stainless. For smaller sized shaft sizes the brand new SC series clamping method that ensures the concentricity of the clamped shaft. Suitable for shaft sizes from 3mm to 15mm size, including imperial and custom formats, make the brand 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 on heavily loaded shafts. These couplings are bored true to shaft size, and the halves are separated during the boring operation to permit for clamping when the halves are drawn together.
