ELPEX Flexible Ring Coupling

Please enter your complete MLFB number here
(E.g. 2LC0170-4AB11-0AA0)

Technical information

  • 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.


Your benefits at a glance

  • Suitable for high dynamic loads

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.
