More About CENTAFLEX-A

What makes CENTAFLEX-A different from the rest?

Highly Flexible

The CENTAFLEX-A series torsional couplings offer superior flexibility and a high torsional elasticity. Built to damp vibrations, shocks, and noise, as well as accommodate misalignment.  The precompressed rubber-in-compression element offers extremely low bearing reaction forces under misaligned conditions compared to most other coupling designs.

Adaptable

CENTAFLEX-A series is available in a variety of designs, lengths, and elements, making them easily adaptable for many configurations and applications.

Highly Engineered Design

The precision-engineered designs are made for high performance, able to compensate for extreme misalignment and shock loads, and operate at both high and low speeds.

Safety

The materials used in the CENTAFLEX-A series are fail-safe, offer backlash-free torque transmission, and protect equipment from extreme shock loads.

CENTAFLEX-AM

CENTAFLEX-AM

CENTAFLEX-AM is a highly flexible coupling, built for connecting marine gear output flanges with a propeller shaft, while isolating the boat hull from noise and vibration. The CENTAFLEX-AM provides backlash-free transmission of torque and propeller thrust using a highly flexible rubber element and thrust bearing. This coupling is specifically designed to reduce noise and vibrations, prolonging the life of surrounding equipment. The flexible coupling damps torsional vibrations and shock loads while offering a high degree of electrical insulation. Designed to compensate moderate axial, radial, and angular misalignments – a common cause of wear – the CENTAFLEX-AM is available in a wide range of standard sizes covering engine power up to several hundred kW. Easily mounted with a clamping hub, the CENTAFLEX-AM is delivered ready to install.
