ELPEX-S rubber disk coupling


Owing to its low torsional rigidity and damping property the ELPEX-S coupling is very well suitable for connecting machines with a considerably non-uniform torque characteristic. The inside diameter of the rubber disk element is vulcanized on a flange. As standard, ELPEX-S couplings are designed as flange/shaft connection or shaft/shaft connection. The hub can serve to take a Taper bush.

Examples of application
