Traits and Performance Information
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of 3 elements: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric versatile sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by way of the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts by way of the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic on the S-Flex coupling is incredibly very well suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling provides combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to suit your specific application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are presented in 5 models which are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide range of application prerequisites
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without the need of put on. The versatile coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue generally connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is usually utilized in applications which require a limited level of shaft end-float without the need of transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial movement of roughly 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action in the elastomeric sleeve plus the locking feature in the mating teeth enables the S-Flex coupling to efficiently take care of angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard connected gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
