SKF Couplings Described In Free 26-Page Full-Color Brochure

The OK coupling, manufactured by SKF Steel, Coupling Division, is described in detail with text and full-color photos in a 26-page ring-bound brochure now available free of charge.

Titled "No Screws. No Bolts.

No Flanges. No Keys.," this informative book includes a series of pages made of transparent acetate overlays. Each contains a full-color illustration of a section of the coupling. When each page is lifted, it reveals, section by section, the full internal construction of the OK coupling.

The book states there are three basic types of rigid couplings: the conventional flange coupling, the conventional muff coupling, and the unconventional OK coupling.

The manufacturer states the unique design of the OK coupling eliminates many of the objections of conventional couplings while providing advantages not available with any other design. These include simpler mounting and de-mounting, minimum space requirements, more secure and more powerful connection, greater torque transmission, and no keys or keyways which allows a reduction in the dimensions of both shaft and coupling.

Other pages contain complete data, photos of coupling components, a comparison with conventional couplings, color illustrated directions for mounting and demounting, and a series of fullcolor photos of vessels of all types throughout the world currently equipped with OK couplings.

A list of sales and service locations throughout the world is included. In the United States, SKF OK coupling sales headquarters is located in Avon, Conn.
