A flexible coupling (11) is formed with a toroidal diaphragm (21-22) as its flexible member. A pair of half-toroids (21-22) are fixed to inner rings (25, 26) and outer rings (27, 28) in order to effect connections. The inner rings (25, 26) are connected, respectively, to drive shaft sections (13, 14). The outer rings (27, 28) are used to connect the half-toroids (21-22) to each other. Torque from one of the drive shaft sections (13) is passed through one of the inner rings (23), through one of the diaphragms (21) through the outer rings (27 and 28) to th...
A flexible coupling for transmitting torque between first and second shaft sections, wherein the first shaft section is positioned in approximate alignment with the second shaft section, characterized by: a metallic diaphragm having a neutral shape of a pair of half-toroids, having inner open ends and outer open ends, the half-toroids joined together by outer attachment rings which are welded by the diaphragm at the outer open ends and not at the inner open ends to approximate a toroid which is closed except at the inner open ends; each half toroid being...
