Heavy duty torque ratings and high strength conical clamping hubs make BK3 couplings the choice for high torque servo gearboxes. Manufactured with a double-walled stainless steel bellows to absorb parallel, angular and axial shaft misalignment, the BK3 has an extremely high torsional stiffness to complement its relatively very low moment of inertia – allowing it to handle rapidly indexing and reversing servo applications.
These unique couplings are manufactured with a tapered conical clamping element, which results in the highest shaft clamping forces, without keys, compared to any other hub design. The BK3 coupling also incorporates unique disassembly screws to aid the mechanic in tight spaces.
The clamping sleeves are custom bored on each side for shaft diameters from 10 to 80 mm ( 0.39 to 3.13 in.). Sizes are available for torque capacities ranging from 15 to 10,000 Nm (133 to 88,500 in. lbs.).
