SKF OKCX and OKFX Couplings

Transmit 50% more torque

The inner sleeve of the OKCX and OKFX Couplings are coated with carbides utilizing advanced plasma technology. This coating increases the torque capacity considerably, 50% higher than for the OKC or OKF Coupling of the same size, and gives the OKCX or OKFX Coupling a number of advantages:
  • Higher torque can be transmitted
  • Can support heavier shock forces caused by fast rotation switches
  • Shaft diameter can be reduced
  • Coupling diameter and length can be reduced
  • Coupling weight can be reduced
  • Surface pressure from the coupling can be reduced
  • Reinforcement sleeves for hollow shafts not needed
