Couplings covered by ISO 10441-2007 are designed to accommodate parallel (or lateral) offset, angular misalignment and axial displacement of the shafts without imposing unacceptable mechanical loading on the coupled machines. It is applicable to gear, metallic flexible element, quill shaft and torsionally resilient type couplings.
ISO 10441-2007 covers the design, materials of construction, manufacturing quality, inspection and testing of special-purpose couplings.
ISO 10441-2007 does not define criteria for the selection of coupling types for specific applications.
ISO 10441-2007 is not applicable to other types of couplings, such as clutch, hydraulic, eddy-current, rigid, radial spline, chain and bellows types.
