CENTAFLEX-A Series Torsional Couplings

Highly flexible coupling with multiple design variants for a wide range of applications
High Performance Design with High Flexibility
Superior performance design with high torsional elasticity
Based on a highly elastic rubber element subject only to compressive stress, The CENTAFLEX-A Series boasts an extremely high-performing design with high torsional elasticity. Dampens torsional vibrations and shocks and compensates for considerable axial, radial and angular misalignments. Electrically insulating and thermally resistant silicon design for rupture-proof and backlash-free transmission in high torque applications. 

Available as axially blind fitting design with radial mount-ability. Rubber element available as split element for quick replacement. Easy handling and mountable with minimum effort. In various lengths adaptable to the installation requirements if applied as homokinetic shaft. Also available as carbon-fiber or glass-fiber designs.
