Elastic couplings

Elastic couplings of the elastomeric type incorporate a pre-compressed rubber component, which provides extra strength and long life. These couplings cater for all types of misalignment. The hubs are made of high strength aluminium alloy, making the coupling light and corrosion resistant. The rubber component damps shocks and provides smooth, quiet power transmission, thus protecting both the driving and the driving machines.
Mounting is very simple. As the rubber component is a split insert, it can be mounted after the shafts have been aligned.

Completely flexible, elastic couplings

These couplings accommodate a total misalignment of 1° and can withstand start-up peak moments of two times the stated continuous torque. By reversing one or both of the hubs, the shaft coupling can be used for different shaft end separations.
