The flexible coupling is a mechanism that creates a soft but reliable connection that compensates for shaft misalignment and generates only minor restoring forces. The torque in this case is transmitted using an elastomeric element, so the product has the properties of plastic rubber.
Acoplamiento elástico Samiflex, first of all, is necessary for damping loads. The products are suitable for use at ambient temperatures from -30°C to +80°C. They are also suitable for potentially explosive atmospheres, for drives that are designed for uniform and medium dynamic loads.
Flexible couplings are based on the principle of modularity, while their design is very simple. The products consist of two parts of the hubs, which are mounted on the shafts of the machine. These parts are connected by elastomeric elastic elements.
