The EDC is the latest addition to GAM’s family of zero backlash drive shaft couplings. Offered in four sizes with torque ratings up to 110Nm, the EDC is available in standard lengths up to 3 m. Longer lengths are possible if application information is provided during sizing. There are three elastomer insert options (98Sh-D, 92Sh-A, 72Sh-D) for different levels of torsional rigidity, vibration dampening, and misalignment compensation.
The EDC has a split hub design for easy installation as the coupling can be installed by placing it directly over the corresponding shafts. The shafts can remain fixed and do not need to be retracted during installation to get proper shaft engagement.
“Our customers were looking for an economical drive shaft solution with a short leadtime,” said Mike Parzych, product marketing manager at GAM, “We developed the EDC to fulfill this market requirement while maintaining the level of quality and performance customers have come to expect from GAM.”
