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 can be used. To match shafts from 6mm up to 50mm in diameter as standard.
A solid compression-type coupling China coupling or rigid coupling as it is sometimes termed has no flexibility but can effectively be used to connect two shafts to create a permanent joint. The solid coupling is usually designed to manage to transmitting the entire torque load capacity of the shaft.
Ever-power stocks a wide selection of solid (muff) design shaft coupling for fast easy shaft connection. Ideal for 6mm to 50mm size shafts, the anodised steel construction is made for arduous use. Merely release the clamp style design by removing the four bolts, fit the coupling and then reapply the bolts to a fixed torque to accomplish 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 both shafts and keeping them firmly set up, rigid couplings help to maximize performance and increase the expected lifestyle of the device. These rigid couplings can be found in two basic designs to fit the needs of different applications. Sleeve-style couplings will be the least expensive and easiest to use, whilst clamped or compression rigid couplings can be found in two parts and fit jointly around the shafts to create a sleeve. Both types are available from Ever-power suiting shaft sizes from 6mm up to 50mm in diameter.
1 and Two piece ABR rigid couplings – Two distinct designs are available. The main one and two piece series couplers have superior holding power and maintain alignment. The single piece versions are given four clamping screws. The two piece split version couplers can be installed and eliminated without machine dis-assembly. Given eight clamping screws, they provide dependable holding power and maintain alignment.
Precision Rigid couplings can be found as regular in aluminium alloy and stainless steel. For smaller shaft sizes the brand new SC series clamping method that ensures the concentricity of the clamped shaft. Suited to shaft sizes from 3mm to 15mm size, including imperial and custom made formats, make the new SC series perfect for applications where high torque and outstanding torsional stiffness are required.

Ever-power’s Rigid couplings are ribbed-type compression couplings that are recommended for emergency and regular service on heavily loaded shafts. These couplings are bored accurate to shaft size, and the halves are separated during the boring operation to allow for clamping when the halves are drawn collectively.
