As the world’s largest manufacturer of mechanical couplings, thanks to more than 80 years of experience Siemens ensures that machine shafts are securely connected in almost all industrial sectors – worldwide. High-quality FLENDER couplings and clutches are particularly reliable and low-maintenance and require low investment and operating costs. The range comprises couplings in a torque range between 10 and 10 000 000 Nm as well as versions for use in potentially explosive areas in (ATEX 95) and, of course, individually adapted solutions.
FLUDEX couplings are hydrodynamic fluid couplings operating according to the Föttinger principle. The coupling parts on the input and output side are not mechanically connected and thus not subject to wear. Torque is transmitted by the fluid movement in the coupling accelerated by the radial blades.
Soft and shockless starting of machines and conveyors
Acceleration of very large masses without the necessity to use overdimensioned motors
Protection of drive against peak loads in case of frequent starting and reversing operations
Excellent vibration separation and shock damping; greatest possible extent of torsional vibration uncoupling in drives subject to vibration
