Mechanical connections for machine designs include couplings, shafts, and keyless locking devices.

Parameters employed to select a coupling for a given application include speed, torque, service factors, predicted assembly misalignment, and bore size. However, these can sometimes conflict with pressures to keep overall machine-build costs down, delivery times short, and installation simple.

In this Design Guide, the editors of Design World detail the most common coupling types for motion control and power transmission as well best practices for sizing, selection, and installation.
