Couplings (flexible and rigid)

DUNLOP Couplings are an essential part of the transmission of power process, where two rotating shafts can be joined together at their ends, whilst allowing for misalignment and/or movement.

 

We offer a full range of both flexible and rigid couplings. HRC spider element, F-tyre and L-jaw couplings are flexible and RM rigid couplings are rigid and are used to connect two shafts together for the purpose of transmitting power. They are used in a variety of industrial drive applications.

 

Rigid couplings are best used for precise alignment and secure hold, while flexible couplings are used when two shafts are slightly nonaligned, they can absorb shock, damp out vibration and reduce noise. Couplings are constructed from high quality materials and are finished to tight dimensional tolerances.

 

Replacement rubber inserts and tyres are also available in both standard and F.R.A.S. compounds.

 

Coupling hubs are available with either a pilot or taper bore, the latter designed for use with pre-machined taper bushes that are finished with the required bore and keyway size.

 

Range

Coupling ranges are: HRC70 to HRC280 flexible couplings, F40 to F250 tyre flexible couplings, L035 to L180 jaw flexible couplings and RM12 to RM40 rigid couplings.
