Traits and Efficiency Details
The S-Flex coupling design is comprised of three parts: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited through the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection while in the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is incredibly well suited to absorb effect loads
The S-Flex coupling gives combinations of flanges and sleeves which may be assembled to fit your certain application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are provided in 5 models which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide range of application prerequisites
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment with out dress in. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, a problem normally related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is usually utilized in applications which call for a constrained volume of shaft end-float without transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve and the locking function in the mating teeth will allow the S-Flex coupling to correctly manage angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to protect connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
