High universal displacement compensation
The Omniflex coupling offers high universal - radial, axial and angular - displacement in conjunction with compact design.
The explanation of this symbiosis lies in the coupling system kinematics. In the Omniflex line, the transmission of the rotary motion and torque takes place via two pairs of 90°-offset parallel link rods. They connect the driving side and the power take-off with the centre disc. Special spherical bearings work in the coupling elements.
Design accurately tailored to each customer
Couplings are accurately designed according to the specific application they are intended for and user's requirements. So, performance data such as the coupling offset capacity, torque requirements and dimensions is individually taken into account in each design.
In addition, for spherical bearings, the choice of the bearing combination is tailored to the technical requirements. Combinations are selected depending on the specific requirements: steel on steel for ruggedness and tough cyclic operation, or steel on PTFE fabric for maintenance-free applications as in process engineering.
