Flexibility in Both Design and Use
The unique, proven steel membrane design of the CENTADISC-M series driveshaft transmits higher torques while it compensates for significant misalignment. With a lightweight design, the CENTADISC-M Series driveshaft features a tandem steel membrane and intermediate tube of steel or carbon-fiber reinforced plastic. The tandem membrane is radially stiff, but as a double cardanic system, is able to compensate for considerable axial misalignment.
The CENTADISC-M is ideally suited for ship propulsion, pump drives, cooling tower drives, papermills, printing, and general power transmission. With a modular design, components are easily exchanged without disturbing the connected shafts, making the CENTADISC-M a low-maintenance solution. Available in lengths up to 10 meters (30’) per section, the CENTADISC-M reduces the need for additional components such as bearings and foundations, making it a truly cost-effective driveshaft solution.
