There are many
coupling products available through couplings supplier YB Components, with many
of the manufacturers coming from all over the world. Here we take a look at
just a few of the excellent international manufacturers of these important
China – Tschan
manufacturer Tschan Couplings designs and builds parts that are often used in
the metal and steel industry, as well as for various transport systems and
automobile manufacturing plants.
Tschan make the
TNS Series Couplings which come in short or long hub varieties, as well as
internal hub versions and others that include brake discs or removable claw
rings. The TNS Series of Tschan couplings are equipped
with excellent torsion flexibility to compensate for misalignment, with the integrated
elastomers available in different degrees of hardness depending on the application’s
manufacture the Nor-Mex Coupling which has the capacity to be flexible in every
direction possible, and the pure steel Posimin multiple disc coupling which is
torsionally rigid and includes elastic flections to be backlash-free. The
Posiflex coupling has a twin cardanic gear coupling and
Germany – Reich Couplings
and operated Reich Couplings have been in
the business of spare parts manufacturing for over seven decades and have grown
over that time to become a renowned specialist in power transmission products.
They design and build a small range of torsionally flexible couplings that are
suitable for a wide range of applications, including construction machinery, railway
engineering, shipbuilding, engines and vehicles.
coupling is a very flexible flywheel coupling featuring an axial plug-in
facility and torsional deflection characteristics which eliminate the backlash
caused by torque transmission.
Acrusaflex-VSK coupling also boasts high torsionally flexibility and is
designed specifically for drive train applications. The vibration-damping Arcusaflex-VSK
also features various characteristics and interchangeable elements that produce
different torsional rigidity factors.
Italy – SIT Couplings
started out in 2008 as a small company in Remini on the Adriatic coast of
northern Italy. They have made brilliant progress in a relatively short space
of time and have since built a fully mechanised logistics centre in Milan and
opened a new branch in India.
Their most well
known products are the SITEX Couplings, as well as the
SITEX FL and SITEX ST varieties. The original SITEX coupling designs feature steel
teeth matched with a pair of milled-teeth hubs with the inner connecting sleeve
made from a stabilized super-polyamide resin. With the couplings consisting of
a steel on super-polyamide resin contact, there is no need for lubrication.
The SITEX FL
Couplings are similar but only come with a single hub for applications that
require that variation. The single hub has a connecting flange made of
super-polyamide resin reinforced with fibreglass which increases its mechanical
strength and wear resistance. The FL versions of the SITEX couplings also have
misalignment-compensating characteristics too.
The SITEX ST
Couplings can come with either one or two hubs, with the latter equipped with
the unique OPTIGEAR profile which produces very high torque transmission and misalignment
