A High-Performance, Fail-Safe Design with High Torsional Stiffness

The simple compact and smooth design of the CENTAFLEX-X series means couplings are low-weight and low-inertia. This high-performance design offers a high permissible speed, large permissible bores, and even transmission of torque. The coupling is maintenance-free and fail-safe. Elements of the coupling can be dismantled without axial displacement. The drive is easily discounted and rotated without dismantling. No axial reaction forces are imposed on the shaft and bearing during torque transmission. The element is air-flushed all around, conducting away heat and ensuring cool operation even under extreme conditions. A flexible element of heavy-duty plastic with pressed-in steel bushes and bending elasticity properties allow for compensation of axial and angular misalignments. When used as a driveshaft, the CENTAFLEX-X offers radial flexibility as well. With an oil-resistant element, the CENTAFLEX-X is suitable for many heavy-duty applications in industrial and motion control applications.

What Sets CENTAFLEX-X Apart?

Highly Flexible

Low-weight and low-inertia, CENTAFLEX-X features CENTA’s trademark elements and hubs.

Reinforced

The extremely tough, slender element is torsionally very stiff and free from backlash, while at the same time offering flexibility in angular and axial directions.

Self-securing

Because the element of the CENTAFLEX-X series is ventilated, the heat generated is easily conducted away; oil resistant and able to withstand temperatures up to 150°C (300°F).

Easy To Install

Delivered pre-assembled; by loosening the axial screws, the drive can easily be disconnected and rotated without dismantling, ensuring easy installation and servicing.
