    Hi all, just working up my 6DOF Linear Actuator prototype and getting reasonable vibration and noise. I notice the shaft coupling rotates out of round when attached to motor and spun without the screw attached. It’s a standard two piece aluminium coupling with the orange flexible rubber insert. Has anyone found this also. It might not be a problem but maybe there are better couples out there that don’t have this issue. Thanks.

    show us a photo of the coupling

    could you use a UV joint instead ?
