Couplings are revolutionary, patented designs which combine the best characteristics of bellows, disc, and beam couplings into a single integrated component. Designed to couple two rotating shafts together, they can accommodate misalignments far greater than other couplings on the market, while transmitting high torque loads with zero backlash.
Their construction provides for a low moment of inertia and minimal impact upon system dynamics. A large through-hole allows for smaller coupling utilization for fitting larger shafts and the fact that they can be disassembled prior to installation, makes them ideal for retrofit applications.
Constructed using high strength hardened stainless steel flexures, the couplings require no maintenance, providing years of trouble-free life, even in contaminated environments. Directionally independent, they can provide the same torsional rigidity and offset capability regardless of the rotation direction. The use of C-Flex Couplings in mechanical systems to connect rotating shafts will result in lower energy usage and bearing failure since less stress is placed upon bearings. Misalignment forces on the bearings of a rotating system generates heat which is wasted energy. The use of C-flex couplings will minimize these misalignment forces and result in a more energy-efficient system. C-Flex Super Plastic Couplings will stabilize high precision systems by dampening transient torque variations.
