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.
*Simple, compact, smooth-face design
*Low weight, low moment of inertia.
*High performance, high-speed range, large bores permitted, rupture-proof.
*Large angle of twist with progressive characteristic curve (approx. 6°-8° at nominal torque).
*High elasticity and considerable flexibility in any direction (radial, axial, angular) with low counter forces on shafts and bearings. The shafts do not, therefore, have to be aligned accurately.
*The action of the CENTAFLEX coupling is shock and vibration absorbing.
*The torque is transmitted absolutely free from play, uniformly, free from noise, and electrically insulating.
*The coupling requires no maintenance, the rubber parts suffer no wear, providing long useful life with no dirt produced by rubber particles.
*The rubber element is air flushed all-round; the heat generated is easily conducted away and the rubber element remains cool.
*The rubber element can easily be fitted and dismantled without the use of special tools or tensions bands.
*The coupling can be very easily aligned, relying on line of sight or with the aid of a straight edge, without any special templates or gauges.
*The elements can be dismantled transversely without any axial displacement.
*No axial reaction forces are imposed on shafts and bearings due to the transmission of torque.
