Company profile

The international CENTA-group has been engaging in solving complex drive train and torsional vibration challenges since 1970. Due to its numerous innovations, the company today ranks among the world's leading manufacturers of flexible couplings and drive shafts for industry, marine and rail applications as well as for power generation.

A broad range of flexible couplings and drive shafts with performance ranging from 10 Nm to tremendous 20 million Nm have already been put to use in millions of applications. Decades of experience and close cooperation with renowned engine manufacturers contributed significantly to this success.

The silent drive shaft Torsionally stiff but capable of compensating for substantial misalignments of all kinds while dampening transmitted noise. Proven over the years in many ship propulsion applications in shaft lines of up to 25 m in length. Available with tubes in either steel or carbon fibre composite more


Torsionally stiff couplings for diesel-hydraulic drives Robust, plug-in, relatively stiff coupling, always undercritically dimensioned, resistant to oil and high temperatures. Series 4 with integrated connecting flange SAE 10, 11.5 and 14 for diesel flywheels. Characteristics *High performance with more


torsionally soft couplings for diesel engine drives The CENTAFLEX-R is a simple robust ROLLER coupling with a progressive torsional characterisation. Ideal for boat drives, providing a very low stiffness at low torque (&speed) which shifts the torsional resonance below idle speed and prevents gearhammer more


Highly flexible couplings and shafts Very versatile; in every aspect very flexible; free of backlash; adaptable; free of wear; numerous special designs, in particular, flexible universal joint shafts. Characteristics *Simple, compact, smooth-face design *Low weight, low moment of inertia. *High performance, more


The coupling provides the flexible connection between engine and gearbox for a failsafe operation in locomotives, gensets, and splitter gears. Developed especially for drives subject to torsional vibration, CENTAMAX cou-plings with performance ranges of 0.1 to 48 kNm are among the highest tor-sionally more


Additional designs complement CENTA's range of CENTAFLEX-KE couplings, further optimising also diesel-driven construction machinery with non-standard engine flywheels. The couplings with a performance range of up to 650 Nm feature high torsional stiffness combined with certain flexibility in radial direction. more
