Our maintenance-free cardan shafts can easily bridge large shaft gaps. At the same time, aggregates are protected via the reduction of oscillations and vibrations thanks to the proven Tenpu fiber. This shaft system can also be operated at a zero-degree bending angle, which is usually not possible in designs with constant velocity or universal joints.
The flexible drive shaft SGFlex-3FD-CONNECT is characterized by its design and versatility. It combines the advantages of drive shafts with the advantages of flexible couplings, thus providing a vibration-damping alternative to drive shafts with universal joints.
The patented centering system SGFlex-3F-ALIGN combines resilience and flexibiliy of the flex coupling with the support feature of the SGF Alignment Support.
» Easy to install
Thanks to the unique design, this system can be assembled and disassembled simply by removing the bolts without moving parts.
SGFlex flexible disc
Torque is transmitted almost exclusively via the vulcanised-in cord inlays (Tenpu® fiber technology) by the unique SGF tension-force-principle.
The cord inlays serve to damp torque peaks and to absorb start-up impacts. The rubber takes on a supporting and protective function for the cord inlays and serves to isolate noises due to the interruption of the structure-borne noise path.
The forged steel flanges are made of high quality steel and its versatile design can support all common as well as custom sizes of shaft/hub connection requirements.
