FLEXITECH Pinbush Type Couplings are in use in general industrial applications over many years and are quite useful in drives where limited misalignment of shafts is unavoidable. FLEXITECH Pinbush Flexible Coupling comprises tow Hubs in Cast Iron of high quality and variable number of flexible elements, depending on the power to be transmitted. The flexible elements of rubber bushes are capable of damping vibration and shock loads as well as accepting misalignment that inevitably occurs between rotating shafts which are independently supported. FLEXITECH Pinbush Flexible Coupling is suitable for rotation in either direction and does not require lubrication. Rubber used for manufacture of bushes is of high quality and works as a safeguard against any bad effect of water, dust and atmospheric conditions.
Flexible couplings are used to transmit torque from one shaft to another when the two shafts are slightly misaligned. Flexible couplings can accommodate varying degrees of misalignment up to 3°. In addition to allowing for misalignment, flexible couplings can also be used for vibration damping or noise reduction. Flexible couplings are designed to transmit torque while permitting some radial, axial, and angular misalignment. Flexible couplings can accommodate angular misalignment up to a few degrees and some parallel misalignment.
