No need to Laser Align this coupling! Thompson Couplings

Sarah W


Where you told you MUST laser align a coupling?

Do you find it takes valuable time off your engineers day or is an added cost to your business?

The Thompson Coupling is revolutionary in several ways, the main unique feature is it does not need to be laser aligned! This goes against what most are taught in college or on training as most trainers have never encountered the Thompson Coupling before. There is a short video attached to this blog sarahw@thompsoncouplings.com

  • No laser alignment needed.
  • Runs with up to 10 degrees total misalignment.
  • Runs in harsh environments.
  • 3 year warranty as standard.
  • Maintenance free.
  • Reduces vibration- saving wear on connected devices, bearings and seals.
  • Reduces operating and power costs.
  • Easy to fit system, quick replacement when needed.

This coupling has been in use for over 15years in various countries, many engineers have still not had exposure to its patented qualities though and so use traditional couplings without realising there is a better more modern alternative. It can replace Grid couplings, Gear couplings, Pin & Bush couplings, Disc couplings, Elastomeric couplings and others. To prolong the life of your pump and motor and other connected devices switching to the Thompson Coupling has proven worthwhile. 

The Thompson Coupling is already in use in a huge variety of sectors- 

  • Quarrying and mining
  • Food processing
  • Marine
  • Agricultural
  • Pulp and paper
  • Steel processing
  • Oil and Gas
  • Palm Oil refineries
  • Monorail
  • Power stations and many more.


We also have many more videos on our youtube channel,


if you would like a virtual demo (where ever you are in the world) we can show you and you can ask any questions you may have.
