TB Wood's is an industry leading designer and manufacturer of mechanical power transmission equipment for industrial control. Our mechanical product lines include: clutch and brake, synchronous and belted variable speed drives; grid, disk, jaw, gear coupling and elastomeric coupling products; sheaves and bushings. Registered trademarks include Sure-Flex®, Dura-Flex® Form-Flex®, G-Flex® and QT Bushing®.
TB Wood's products are sold through authorized distributors to end users and to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Couplings TB Wood’s offers a solution for any coupling application with several lines of high-performance couplings. Wood’s lines of elastomeric, disc and gear couplings have a reputation of reliability and flexibility. Whether you choose from our Sure-Flex®, Dura-Flex®, Form-Flex®, Jaw, or Grid Couplings, you can be certain you’re getting the very best of Wood’s performance and quality.
TB Wood's Sure-Flex® couplings use a rubber (EPDM), neoprene, or Hytrel sleeve and have exceptional torsional flexibility. Their 4-way flexing action absorbs virtually all types of shock, misalignment, and end float.
With Sure-Flex couplings, the need for lubrication and maintenance is eliminated. As a result, these couplings provide clean, dependable, and quiet performance for a variety of applications.
Lubrication-free design provides quiet, reliable performance Flexible sleeves available in EPDM, Neoprene, and Hytrel Fast and easy installation without bolts, gaskets, covers or seals Uniquely designed teeth and lateral flexibility accept both parallel and angular misalignment without wear Choose from an extensive offering of sizes, using BTS, bushed, clamp and spacer flanges Four-way flexing action absorbs extreme torsional shock and vibration.
TB Wood’s Dura-Flex® couplings are designed from the ground up using finite element analysis to maximize flex life. Perfect for a wide variety of applications -- including those with uniform to heavy shock loads -- Dura-Flex® couplings employ a light weight element that absorbs shock loading and torsional vibration. These couplings are available in stock bore-to-size (BTS, Taper-Lock® and Sure-Grip® bushed (QT) hubs.
TB Wood’s Jaw couplings are designed to meet high-quality standards while remaining affordable. Wood’s offers two Jaw-type elastomeric couplings: a straight L-Jaw coupling available with four insert materials and a straight C-Jaw coupling designed for high-torque loads. Both are 100% interchangeable with industry-standard designs.
Form-Flex® couplings transmit torque while compensating for angular, parallel and axial misalignment between two connected shafts. Flexible disc couplings minimize the misalignment forces on the connected equipment.
TB Wood’s Rigid couplings are ribbed-type compression couplings that are recommended for emergency and regular service on heavily loaded shafts. These couplings are bored true to shaft size, and the halves are separated during the boring operation to allow for clamping when the halves are drawn together.
TB Wood's Grid coupling continues the tradition of the original Bibby Resilient Coupling, invented by Dr. James Bibby. The coupling is designed for long life under tough application conditions.
Taper Grid replacement and maintenance can be performed quickly and easily without the need to move and realign connected equipment.
Sizes 1020 through 1140 in-stock and interchangeable with industry standard designs.
