Flender mechanical power transmission railway couplings available from jbj Techniques Limited

WITHOUT ANY DELAYS. The Flender ARS all-steel multi-disk coupling can compensate for large misalignments and can be assembled and disassembled with very little effort. FLENDER COUPLINGS RAIL COUPLINGS An optimized conical bolt connection developed in-house is used to connect the disk packs to the respective coupling components. The components are assembled by means of both positive and non-positive connections. The tightening torques are low due to the optimized design of the bolted connection. In addition, due to the special form of the polygonal elements, an additional anti-rotation mechanism is not required during assembly, which also keeps the assembly effort low. Another positive effect here is the protection of the disks at the outer diameter against possible damage from stones or similar hazards. In general, the assembly effort is very low, as the main coupling components are delivered ready for installation ex-works. The all-steel multi-disk coupling is a torsionally rigid coupling that can compensate for large misalignments. In general, the coupling is compactly connected to the gear unit via a hollow-shaft connection and gear teeth. The motor- side coupling half is connected to the motor shaft via an oil pressure interference fit. This ensures rapid assembly and disassembly. ADVANTAGES OF THE FLENDER ARS: » Form-closed bolt connection, low tightening torque. » Polygonal disk creates a bending line in order to compensate for the large misalignments. » Polygonal disk with impact protection during use. » Simple alignment during assembly. 10 www.jbj.co.uk/couplings.html#flender
