HK / HKI 5… | Single joint coupling

Accessories – mechanical

  • For encoder attachments with offset
  • Play-free, torsion resistant and failsafe
  • Extends service life of encoders
  • Options: Insulated version (HKI 5)

The stable connections

Corrosion proof HK metal multiple disc couplings compensate an angular offset up to 0.5° and an axial misalignment up to ±1 mm as well as extending the service life of encoders in the process. Single joint couplings are available with different hub lengths and bore diameters in addition to insulated coupling versions for attachments where the risk of shaft currents is a concern.
