The PAGUFLEX couplings have a plastic body and two integrated steel hubs. Mounting takes place without removing or shifting shafts. The prefitted screws in the steel hub obviates the need for additional machining of the shaft ends. All loop couplings compensate radial and axial misalignment.
Double loop-shaped, thermoplasticcompensating coupling element made from, a Thermo-plastic Ether Ester Elastomer (TEEE) from DuPont.Owing to the high reverse bendingstrength of the flexible materialand the cardan-like shaping of the power transmitter, this deve-lopment is the ingenious, technical solution for shaft displacement problems in motive power engi-neering, and in measurement and control techniques.
Plus points of the PAGUFLEX® PLUS couplings High torsional rigidity with optimal bending and traction or thrust flexibility
Ingeniously simple construction principle
One-piece design – without play, friction, wear and structure vibrations.
Simple fitting, no extra machining of the shaft.
Mminimum fitting volume, radially and axiallyl.
Extremely high, permissible displacement error values: angular approx. Ø ±15°, radial approx. Ø ±3 mm, and axial approx. 10 to 20 mm.
Coupling can be used as an universal joint for large or intermittent bending angles of the shaftl elastic element made of (Thermoplastic Ether Ester Elastomer, TEEE) enabling:- high operational reliability in the temperature range between -40 °C and +100 °C.
Insulation from heat Structure-borne noise and leakage currents.
Damping of vibration and shock.
Relieves the motor/machine shaft bearings of lateral and axial forces applications:
- Packaging machines
- Torque sensors
- General machine construction etc.
