A novel coupling for two parallel shafts with non-collinear axes has been developed and used in a cycloidal transmission with magnetic gears. Such a coupling has been designed as an alternative to traditional couplings to transmit the rotation from the orbiting gear to the output shaft. The driving shaft transmits a couple consisting of two equal and opposite forces to a central element which, in turn, transmits the same couple, also consisting of two equal and opposite forces to the driven shaft. This novel coupling was successfully used instead of a traditional coupling resulting in, not only a smother operation, but also a more efficient power transmission.
