Overview Quick Details
Flexible couplings offer flexibility between the shafts due to assembly conditions and the rubber blocks
Fexible couplings compromise of 2 equal gear rings meshing with each other and connected through high resistance resilient rubber blocks. Both these gear rings are symmetrical and can effectively transmit torque ( without being flexible ) even without the rubber blocks ( for a short time, in emergencies ).
Flexible couplings offer flexibility between the shafts due to assembly conditions and the rubber blocks cushion the transfer of axial thrusts between the 2 shafts, due to their structural characteristics.
Fexiblecouplings are available ina very wide range from 49Nm to 135,000 Nm in bore ranges from 50 to 240mm diameter. Standard renge covers spacer type ( with 1 side elastic coupling and the other side of rigid coupling
