Curved Jaw Couplings From Lovejoy
Introduction

CJ

For over 100 years Lovejoy Inc. has set the standard for straight jaw couplings in the United States and around the world. Now, Lovejoy Inc. is proud to
present the CJ and GS Series, a full line of curved jaw products for the world market. The CJ Series curved jaw coupling provides highly reliable service for
light, medium, and heavy duty electrical motor and internal gas combustion engine applications. The GS Series provides a coupling solution for the motion
control industry This product offering will continue Lovejoy's long history of being the world's premier coupling supplier.

The Curved Jaw Design


The three-piece design incorporates a radial curvature to the jaw face and both radial and axial curvature (crowning) to the elastomer (spider). The curved jaw
hubs are offered in sintered iron, steel, aluminum, cast and nodular iron materials. The CJ Series curved jaw coupling and the variety of urethane elements
allows for angular, parallel, and axial misalignment. The simplicity of the three-piece design makes it easy to assemble. Unlike some metallic coupling designs,
the CJ Series design requires no lubrication. When assembled, the CJ Series offers no metal to metal contact of parts. The elastomer in compression design
offers the benefit of continuing to function even after the elastomeric element fails (fail-safe design). The torque range of the CJ Series product is 67 to 247.800
in-lbs. Lovejoy offers the CJ Series in a range of product with finished stock metric bores and keyways for sizes 14 through 75/90. Sizes 100-180 are also available with metric bores on a made-to-order basis.

Elastomers (spider materials)


Lovejoy offers four types of spiders for the CJ Series curved jaw coupling product line.
Urethane spiders provide high abrasion resistance and elasticity, along with good damping
characteristics. The spiders are offered in a variety of shore hardnesses, each providing a
different level of torque capacity, damping, and chemical resistance. The 92 shore spider (white
or yellow) is standard, offering excellent torque carrying capacity. The 80 shore spider (blue)
offers the best damping characteristics. The 95/98 shore spider (red) offers the highest torque
carrying capacity. The 64 shore spider (green) is offered for high humidity environments. The
standard spiders also feature an open center to accommodate small between shaft end measurements. All standard spiders have a rated temperature capacity of 212 C. (See page 12 for
GS spider temperature ratings.) The urethane material also resists oil, dirt, sand, grease, moisture, many solvents, as well as the atmospheric effects of ozone.

The CJ Series Selection Process*
Step 1:

Determine the nominal torque of your application:

Next find the columns listing Tkn and Tkmax values listed in Nm
and compare them against the DTkmax figure for your
application. Make sure that the spider/coupling size values are
larger than the application values.

Step 6:

Once the size is selected using the torque values, check the table
on page CJ-6 to make sure the bore size needed will fit in the
coupling.

Step 7:

Double check the overall dimensions of the coupling to


ensure that it will fit in the space allowed for the coupling in
the application.

in-lbs = Tkn = HPx63025


rpm
Step 2:

Calculate your Application Service Factor using the charts below.


The total Service Factor (K) will be:
K = K1 x K2 x K3

Step 3:

Calculate the design torque (DTkmax) of your application.


Design Torque (DTkmax) =
Nominal Torque x service factor.

Step 4:

Using the Elastomer performance data charts on pages CJ-4 &


CJ-5 select the urethane shore hardness which best corresponds
to your relative damping needs in the application.

Application Service Factor (K1)


Application Service Factor
Uniform operation with small masses to be accelerated.
Hydraulic and centrifugal pumps, light generators, blowers,
fans, ventilators, belt/screw conveyors.
Uniform operation with medium masses to be accelerated.
Sheet metal bending machines, wood working machines,
mills, textile machines, mixers.
Irregular operation, with medium masses to be accelerated.
Rotating ovens, printing presses, generators, shredders,
winders, spinning machines, pumps for viscous fluids.
Irregular operation and shocks, with medium masses to be
accelerated Concrete mixers, drop hammers, cable cars,
paper mills, compression pumps, propeller pumps, rope
winders, centrifuges.
Irregular operation and very heavy shocks, with large
masses to be accelerated. Excavators, hammer mills,
piston pumps, presses, rotary boring machines, shears,
forge presses, stone crushers.
Irregular operation and very heavy shocks, with very large
masses to be accelerated. Piston type compressors and
pumps without speed variations, heavy roll sets, welding
machines, brick presses, stone crushers.

*This selection process is based on application factors only. A selection process


is also available using DIN 740 part 2 standard. Consult with Lovejoy Engineering
for details.

The values regarding displacement are provided assuming normal operating conditions (i.e. temperature, torque with nominal rating of the coupling, speed/RPM rating of
the coupling, and misalignment). Careful installation (i.e. alignment) and periodic inspection should be provided to provide the optimum life of the coupling. Special consideration should be given as to the position of the shafts and the amount of axial movement the coupling will be exposed to. The more accurate the alignment of the
coupling, will result in greater life of the elastomer. A coupling guard and rotating equipment safety procedures should always be followed. Please consult the Lovejoy
web site at www.lovejoy-inc.com for assembly instructions of the curved jaw coupling.

Technical Description For The GS Series

The GS Series curved jaw coupling offers zero backlash capability in a 3-piece design. The coupling is provided assembled under prestress. The GS Series
can be used in a variety of different applications requiring precision and accuracy.
The GS Series spider features a straight center of the spider tooth, providing higher stiffness due to coupling prestress. The crowning of the ends of the spider
legs allows for misalignment, while the curved jaws and solid spider center provide high-speed capability.
The jaws of the hubs and the spider legs are chamfered to provide easy assembly. The GS Series coupling design also allows the blind assembly in tight
spaces. Raised spider dots on the legs of the spider ensure proper spacing of hubs and spider.
Proper installation of the coupling can provide isolation of electrical currents. Check the CL dimension listed on page 19 to ensure the proper spacing between
spiders and hubs.
The GS Series coupling has spiders available in four different shore hardnesses. Each spider offers benefits for different vibratory, environmental, and torque
transmission requirements.

Coupling Selection For The GS Series
Typical Applications
Measurement And Control Systems
The torsional stiffness of the GS Series coupling provides zero backlash needed for the accuracy for measurement and control systems. The low torques of
these applications gives the GS Series the ability to provide zero backlash due to the elastomer pre-stress.

The GS Series provides a zero backlash, flexible connection for servo and positioning drives. An added benefit of the GS Series is its damping capabilities. For
applications that have vibrations at critical speeds, the GS Series coupling can provide a zero backlash solution for vibration problems.

Main Spindle Drives


The GS Series coupling is used in main spindle drives for machine tools. Torque spikes and cyclical loading are handled by the GS Series by damping or by
shifting the vibratory frequency range to a non-critical speed range.

Tkn > Rated torque of machine x K3 x K4
Peak Torque
Shock load (driver side) = Peak torque (driver) x rotational inertia coefficient (driver) x K5
Shock load (driven side) = Peak torque (driven) x rotational inertia coefficient (driven) x K5
Check the peak torque for the application against the rating for the coupling (see page 15), checking both driver and driven sides:
Tkmax > Peak Torque (driver or driven side) x K3 x K4

GS Series Hub Design (Descriptions)

CJ

The GS Series coupling features different hub designs for different application situations. Each type offers specific benefits for different types of applications.
The clamping styles offer the benefit of minimal to zero backlash.

Keyway With Set Screw


(KW)

Without Keyway,
With Set Screw

Standard Lovejoy method of securing


a hub to a shaft. Clamping style
recommended for backlash free
torque transmission.

Set screw used to secure hub to shaft.


This hub design should be used in
applications with non-reversing and
low torque characteristics.

Clamping Hub With Single


Slot Without Keyway (C)

Clamping Hub With Single


Slot With Keyway (CWK)

Zero backlash, clamping style for


torque transmission. Torque capacity
of hub depends on bore size.
Available standard for sizes 14-19.

Zero backlash, clamping style with


keyway for torque transmission. Usable
in applications featuring reversing loads.
Available standard for sizes
14-19.

Clamping Hub With Double


Slot Without Keyway (DSC)

Slot With Keyway (DSCK)

Transmits torque utilizing a double


split clamp to attach hub to shaft. Zero
or minimum backlash. Torque capacity
of coupling determined by bore size.
Available standard for
sizes 19-65.

Transmits torque utilizing a double split


clamp to attach hub to shaft. Zero or
minimum backlash. Available standard
for sizes 24-65.

Hub With Frictional Locking


(LD)
This hub utilizes a shaft locking device
to allow for shaft engagement. This
design features bolts tightened on the
jaw side of the hub.

GS Series Misalignment Information
The GS Series coupling handles the following types of misalignment: axial, angular, and radial. The coupling
retains its zero backlash properties due to its spider design.

GS Series Misalignment Table


Axial Misalignment
Axial misalignment can be caused by
different shaft tolerances or by thermal
expansion of shafts. The GS Series coupling
handles axial misalignment while keeping
reactionary forces low.

Size
14

19

Radial Misalignment

Kr

Radial misalignment can be defined as a


measure of the offset distance between the
centerlines of the driving and driven shafts. This
type of misalignment, due to the forces
involved, causes the highest stress.

24

28

38

Angular Misalignment
Angular misalignment can be defined as a
measure of the angle between the centerlines
of the driving and driven shafts, where those
centerlines would intersect approximately
halfway between shaft ends. The GS Series
coupling can handle a specific amount of
angular misalignment for each given size (refer
to chart on right).
