This course discusses drive components, couplings, and clutches. Drivers and their driven equipment are important in the operation of many industrial processes. During operation, the shaft of the driver turns and transmits power to the shaft of the driven equipment. In order for this transmission of power to occur, the two shafts must be connected. Couplings and clutches are among the types of equipment drive components that can be used to connect the shafts and transmit the power.
