This course covers how to identify components and correct procedures, describe functions and purpose, and troubleshoot as it relates to the functions of shaft couplings; tapered and cylindrical bore, fits; precision measurement of diameter and bore; fitting keys; the arbor press; installing a coupling half; types of misalignment; alignment; shimming; end play; and alignment check.
At the completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- Describe the functions of shaft couplings
- State the concepts of measurement and installation of couplings
- Identify misalignment and proper alignment procedures
- Demonstrate this knowledge on a fill-in-the blank exam
