Gear couplings are used to transmit power and torque between two components of a drivetrain system. A torque converter is an example of a gear coupling. In this device, fluid circulates between the engine and transmission to convert rotary motion into linear motion.
Chain couplings are commonly used to connect two or more shafts together. For example, you may have two shafts on your automobile with a chain coupling between them. In this case, the chain is connected between the ends of the shafts. It is used to prevent the shafts from spinning and to stop the shafts from coming apart.
There are many other types of gear couplings. You may have seen a friction coupling in your vehicle. This type of coupling uses friction to keep two parts connected.
The parts may be connected by a spring force. In some cases, the parts are connected by a liquid or gel that is forced into the gap between the two parts. The friction coupling has several advantages over the chain couplings.
