Image Number 2 for United States Patent #4610642.
A link coupling having at least one coupling hub and one outer coupling flange interconnected by links or groups of links which are disposed at a tangent to the rotational axis. The links are arranged in pairs at an angle to one another, and are secured at their ends, by dowels or bolts, alternately to the hub and to the coupling flange. As an improvement, bolt-on ring segments are provided on at least one coupling part for the securing of the links. The bores for receiving the securing bolts or fasteners are enlarged, i.e. are formed with clearance. Unavoidable tolerances in bore diameters, and spacing errors, can therefore be compensated especially along with increase in reliability of operation.
