The MEGIFLEX shaft coupling is a component of the proven and successful
MEGIFLEX system. The torsionally rigid coupling has hubs made of high-quality
steel, precisely machined on all sides and very versatile and adaptable. The
alternating axial and radial fixing of the flexible elastic components to the
hubs is carried out using high-strength, self-locking screws. Due to the thin
elastic component which is made of an extremely tough and highly resilient
plastic, the coupling is very powerful in a small installation space. This
elastic element is torsionally stiff and free of play, but flexible in bending
and therefore axially and angularly flexible.
The MEGIFLEX shaft coupling is also oil-resistant and can withstand
temperatures up to approx. 150°C. This elastic element contains steel bushings
that are alternately screwed axially and radially to the hubs. The radial
bushings are firmly injected into the elastic element.
MEGIFLEX coupling is used for assembly in closed housings and in particular
where greater axial play needs to be compensated. With the torsionally rigid
elastic element of the "X" series, the MEGIFLEX system is extended into
new areas of application in an economical way using existing components; e.g.
pump drives (also with radially dismountable intermediate piece), cooling tower
drives, air conditioning technology, printing machines, packaging machines,
stepper motors, tachometer drives, hydraulic drives, compressors, to name just
couplings can be delivered balanced upon request. However, depending upon the
length / width of the unit, the ratio is not critical in terms of imbalance.
We will be
happy to assist you with the selection of the coupling. Information on
assembly, disassembly and technical data can also be found in our catalogue
which is available to download.
