  2. When the input shaft and output shaft are connected with the power and supporting machinery, if the coupling is used, the shaft and the shaft are required to be strictly aligned, and there should be no misalignment. The use of V-belts and chains should not be too tight or too loose.

   3. The installation foundation should be firm and reliable, and there should be no vibration or looseness. The fixing screws should be selected in strict accordance with relevant standards and regulations.

4. The installation screws should be checked from time to time whether they are tightened, and the fixing is firm, and spring washers should be used as far as possible.
