The Configurator online tool from Lovejoy Inc . translates raw data into usable CAD drawings and dimensional data for various styles of flexible couplings used in multiple power transmission applications, including pumps, compressors, and gear boxes.
Visitors to the Web site can access a database of more than 20,000 couplings with selections suitable for either inch or DIN metric specifications. To simplify the process, Configurator automatically computes specific parameters, such as torque, when the user enters horsepower and rpm.

Features of the Configurator include:

  • Definitions of coupling styles and terminology;

  • Side-by-side comparisons of coupling styles;

  • Photos, specifications, and performance data;

  • Options to view or download CAD drawings;

  • Ability to edit coupling selection parameters;

  • Part numbers for easy ordering; and

  • Ability to e-mail drawings, photos, or dimensional data.
