Double flex couplings are compensating couplings for the torsionally
flexible transmission of torque. The double flex coupling consists of two
identical coupling halves, each with a soft material ring, which are loosely
pushed into each other in the axial direction. With this coupling, the static
and dynamic forces resulting from the torque and the shaft displacements are
distributed over two soft material rings, which are essentially only subjected
to compressive stress that is evenly distributed. Any relative movement between
the bolt and the soft material ring resulting from angular and parallel
displacements of the coupled shafts is expressed partly in sliding movements at
the contact points and partly as fibre displacement in the soft material rings.
The flexing due to the fiber displacement and the wear (abrasion) caused by the sliding movement are kept within permissible limits. Due to the identical coupling halves, the forces resulting from the torque are absorbed by both of the soft-material rings, which are therefore the reason we achieve good torsional elasticity and flexibility properties of the double-flex coupling.
