The Royal Spanish Academy ( RAE ) does not recognize the term cupla in its dictionary. The concept, however, is used in different ways in our language.
The couple of forces is known as a couple : a system that develops with two forces that are parallel and have the same module or intensity, although opposite senses. The application of the couple to an object generates a torsion or rotation.
According to their values and the distance between the parallel forces, the torsion or rotation has a different magnitude. The moment of a couple, in this framework, is a magnitude of vector type whose module is the product of one of the two forces by the distance between them.

It can be said that a couple, in short, is a pair of forces, which are applied to the same body and have the same intensity but the opposite direction. This causes them to generate the rotation of the body in question.
In the field of plumbing, on the other hand, the part used to achieve the union of two pipes on the outside is called a coupler. The couplers allow the pipes to be connected externally, making the water or gas circulate inside them without leaks or leaks.
In the field of automotive mechanics, it is called torque or drive coupling to the measure of force that makes the crankshaft rotate. The crankshaft, for its part, is the name of a part of the engine of certain machines, such as the car, which is made up of several elbows, each one of them adjusted to a connecting rod and an axis; its function is to transform the rectilinear movement of the pistons into rotation, or just the opposite.
It is a torque coupler, and for this reason it is made up of two forces: the first is expansive, and is exerted by the gases when combustion takes place in the piston head (this is measured in kilograms); the second is the extension of the crankshaft journal (measured in meters). For this reason, the value of this property is given in kilograms, in relation to the number of revolutions of the motor.
At this number of revolutions per minute, the highest value of the expansive force exerted by the gases is generated, which pushes the piston and this, through the connecting rod, makes the crankshaft rotate. The larger the drivetrain, the better the car’s performance in sudden acceleration, towing and climbing. Currently, to measure this pair of magnitudes, the unit Newton-meter ( Nm ) is used, and the relationship 1 kg = 10 Nm has been established.
Safety components used to prevent certain breakages and reduce machine downtime are known by the name of manual coupling limiter . Its action is similar to that of a fuse when a mechanical overload occurs, since it disconnects the input from the output. It is very easy to install, both online and parallel shaft coupling.
As its name indicates, this safety element must be adjusted manually, using a nut located in the center (in the case of small and medium-sized models) or several screws (in the larger coupling limiters). ). Depending on the type of assembly, it is possible to install it with a transmission between shafts in parallel or joining coaxial shafts.
For confectionery, a cupla is an adapter that is used in the nozzles of the sleeves. A tricolor cupla, for example, makes it possible to apply three different products, something very useful for decorating a cake (a cake) or a cake with different colors.
