Axoflex® - Elastic coupling
Couplings pads for very high torque.
► Flexible element comprising a variable number of flexible bushes,depending on the torque to be transmitted.
-Inner with tapped or smooth holes (normal mounting or on flywheel).
-Precompressed natural rubber bonded to inner and to outer the half-cylinders.
-Half-cylinders bonded to the rubber.
-Outer housing ensuring precompression of rubber by exerting pressure on the half-cylinders.
► Steel disks:
-Flange to which the inner studs are attached (normal mounting).
-Disk to which the studs are attached (flywheel mounting).
► Die cast steel hubs:
-The two hubs are identical. They may be bolted to disks or depending on the mounting used.
► Good axial flexibility which allows great axial displacement, for example in the case of conical rotor machines.
The AXOFLEX® coupling design gives it the following properties:
► Radial disassembly without moving the coupled machines (large machines in general);
► Pre-compression of the rubber during assembly which limits the work in traction.
