Safety Couplings Market – Introduction
A coupling is a device that connect two shafts at their ends for transmitting power. In designing of safety coupler, various safety factors are considered by safety coupler designer, such as calculation of stress value based on material property to eliminate the flaws which may lead to accident. Similarly, few other properties of material such as ultimate strength, modulus, and fatigue strength are calculated as a safety factor. Safety couplings are also known as torque limiters. Safety couplings are widely used in industrial servo machines for effective functioning and smooth operation of the machinery. Few other advantages for increasing use of safety coupling in industrial servo machines are the easy installation, and durable finish. Safety couplings are used in industrial automation process to reduce the high cost damage at the time of collision in servo driver system. Safety couplings are used in various industries namely chemical industry, metallurgical industry, mining, and industrial automation.

Safety Couplings Market – Dynamics
Increasing use of Safety Couplings in Mining Applications
One of the major driving factors for the growth of global safety couplings market is increasing use of safety couplings in mining applications. In mining applications, safety couplings are used to avoid machine damage due to overload, which leads to cost saving, increases production uptime and reduces production loss to boost the profit. Also, the use of safety couplings contribute to increase the lifespan of the machinery by avoiding overload case and provide a backlash free connection. In mining applications such as crushing, grinding, conveying, tunneling, and excavation safety couplings are being used as it helps to reduce downtime and provide improved performance by eliminating rapid torque peaks. During mining process when collision occurs with solid rock layers, the safety coupling stops the destructive inertial force instantly to reduce downtime and protects the couplings from damage. In tunneling process, high drilling speed causes torque peaks, wherein the use of safety couplings eliminates rapid torque peaks to increase the lifespan of the machine. Moreover, with technological advancement the safety couplings are available in compact design to optimize the process control applications. Owing to above mentioned benefits safety couplings are increasingly used in mining application. Hence, increase in excavation, tunneling, and crushing activity in various industry is anticipate to boost the demand of safety coupling during forecast period.
