ZAPEX ZN Gear Coupling


ZAPEX ZN couplings connect machine shafts and compensate angular and radial misalignment. ZAPEX gear couplings of the ZN series are made of high-quality quenched and tempered steel and are manufactured according to the modular construction system. They are available at short term in 12 sizes up to a torque of 162,500 Nm.

Examples of application

  • Systems in the steel industry (rolling mills, roller tables, shears, punches, presses, etc.)

  • Mixers

  • Presses

  • Crushers

  • Kneaders

  • Mills

  • Conveyor technology

  • Pumps

Advantages of the product

  • Long service life and minimum maintenance requirement as a result of reliable grease lubrication of the gear teeth

  • Small dimensions, low weight and low mass moments of inertia are achieved by appropriate design and combination of materials

  • Maximum bore range and grease lubricated gear teeth

  • Large safety reserves also at high shock loads

  • Maximum operational reliability through optimum tooth shape and use of high-quality materials

  • Suitable for horizontal mounting and in special design also for vertical mounting

  • Can be used in potentially explosive atmospheres; certified acc. to 94/9/EC (ATEX 95)
