Traits and Functionality Details
The S-Flex coupling style is comprised of three components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by the flanges mounted on the two the driver and driven shafts via the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection during the sleeve
The shear characteristic from the S-Flex coupling is extremely effectively suited to soak up affect loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to suit your precise 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 five models that are created from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to tackle a wide selection of application needs
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts up to .062 in of parallel misalignment without put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue normally connected with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings can be utilized in applications which require a constrained volume of shaft end-float with no transferring thrust loads to products bearings. Axial motion of about 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of your elastomeric sleeve and the locking attribute with the mating teeth permits the S-Flex coupling to successfully take care of angular misalignment up to 1??.
S-Flex couplings efficiently dampen torsional shock and vibration to safeguard connected tools. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up flexibility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel gives 7??wind-up.
