Qualities and Effectiveness Information
The S-Flex coupling style and design is comprised of three components: two flanges with inner teeth engage an elastomeric flexible sleeve with external teeth
Torque is transmited by means of the flanges mounted on each the driver and driven shafts through the sleeve
Misalignment and torsional shock loads are absorbed by shear deflection from the sleeve
The shear characteristic of your S-Flex coupling is quite well suited to absorb influence loads
The S-Flex coupling offers combinations of flanges and sleeves which might be assembled to fit your specific application
Thirteen sizes can be found with torque abilities that range from 60 in-lbs to 72,480 in-lbs
The S-Flex flanges are made available in 5 versions which are produced from zinc or cast iron
Sleeves can be found in EPDM rubber, Neoprene to address a wide variety of application necessities
Protection from misalignment, shock, and vibration:
The S-Flex coupling accepts as much as .062 in of parallel misalignment with out put on. The flexible coupling sleeve minimizes the radial loads imposed on tools bearings, an issue normally associated with parallel misalignment.
The S-Flex couplings is often used in applications which call for a limited amount of shaft end-float without transferring thrust loads to gear bearings. Axial motion of somewhere around 1/8 inch accepted.
The flexing action of the elastomeric sleeve and the locking function with the mating teeth makes it possible for the S-Flex coupling to successfully deal with angular misalignment as much as 1??.
S-Flex couplings effectively dampen torsional shock and vibration to guard linked gear. The EPDM and Neoprene sleeves have torsional wind-up versatility of 15?? at their rated torque. Hytrel presents 7??wind-up.
