Traits and Functionality Information
The S-Flex coupling design and style is comprised of 3 components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by way of the flanges mounted on both the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection in the sleeve
The shear characteristic in the S-Flex coupling is extremely very well suited to soak up effect loads
The S-Flex coupling features combinations of flanges and sleeves which could be assembled to fit your particular application
Thirteen sizes are available with torque abilities that vary from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are made available in five models that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide variety of application specifications
Safety from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment with no put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, a problem commonly related with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is usually used in applications which require a restricted level of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve plus the locking characteristic in the mating teeth lets the S-Flex coupling to properly deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings correctly dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel supplies 7??wind-up.
