Highly flexible, backlash-free tire coupling
Nominal torque range from TKN = 1,600 Nm up to 90,000 Nm with 9 sizes
Temperature range: from –40 °C to +80 °C
Flexible and adaptable
Owing to its low torsional stiffness and damping properties the ELPEX® coupling is very well suited to connecting machines with considerably non-uniform torque characteristics. Types with a fail-safe device between the flexible rings ensure emergency operation if the flexible rings are destroyed.

Did you know?
The ELPEX coupling’s transmission characteristics are determined essentially by the flexible rings. These flexible rings are manufactured from a natural rubber blend with a multi-ply fabric lining. They are split so that they can be changed without having to move the coupled machines.
