ROTOFLEX COUPLINGDan Cummings
METALASTIK ROTOFLEX® COUPLINGS
This coupling is used for motor vehicle propeller shafts, half shafts steering columns, industrial drives as well as many other applications.
Accommodates large angular and axial displacements with minimum resistance.
Reduces torsional vibration and noise.
Absorbs torque fluctuations.
Replaces mechanical joints, eliminating lubrication and metal-to-metal wear.
No servicing required.
Unaffected by dust, grit or moisture.
The Metalastik Rotoflex® Coupling consists of a regular polygon of rubber with metal inserts bonded in position. It can have 4,6 or 8 sides. After moulding, the rubber elements in the coupling are compressed by the fitting of a steel retaining band. This important design feature ensures maximum fatigue life. The retaining band is discarded after assembly. Metal interleaves bonded into the rubber elements provide increased torque capacity when required.
Rotoflex couplings have proved successful for motor car propeller and half-shaft applications for auxiliary drives on road vehicles and for many industrial drives.
When couplings operate at very high speeds and support a cardan shaft, a centring device is necessary; these can be all metal or a metalastik bush arrangement – details are available from our design department on request.
