Industrial Bearing & Power Transmission Experts.

We help get the job done.


Couplings are used to connect shafts and direct the power and motion of various machinery. From power transmission, to shock and vibration absorption, misalignment accommodation, heat flow interruption, and overload protection, specialty couplings serve a wide range of integral machinery functions. BSC is proud to assist our customers in their operations by providing high-quality coupling products for every service needed.



Specialty Couplings

Because these parts are used across a variety of applications, there are numerous specialty coupling options to choose from. The two primary specialty coupling options are rigid and flexible varieties. Continue reading to learn more about what each type of coupling has to offer:

Rigid Couplings

Rigid couplings are primarily ordered by customers looking for a part that will efficiently transfer torque from one shaft to another. Because these couplings are more standardized than other specialty coupling options, rigid couplings tend to be more cost-efficient product solutions. Additionally, by providing higher levels of torsional stiffness, rigid couplings allow for easy positioning and alignment.

Flexible Couplings

One of the biggest advantages of opting for a flexible coupling instead of a rigid specialty coupling is that flexible couplings will allow for slight machine misalignment. In an ideal world, equipment would never fall out of alignment, but when you require a part that will allow for a certain degree of “wiggle room,” BSC’s flexible couplings have you covered. Furthermore, these specialty couplings provide shock absorption capabilities that rigid couplings are not able to offer.
