Flender Couplings


YB Components are the UK’s leading Flender suppliers and supply a wide variety of Flender spare parts. Here we take a look at just a handful of the high performing and cost effective Flender couplings available through Flender distributors.

Flender Flexible Couplings

Flender’s highly flexible couplings feature an elastomer element that compensates for shaft misalignment. The elastomer element also absorbs shocks and impacts, while each model in the range is mateable and easy to assemble.

The N-EUPEX Pin Coupling boasts exceptional torsional flexibility. This means they can redirect vibrations away from the operational components of the machinery equipped with them. This function protects the drive train from any of the negative effects usually caused by critical torsional vibrations. The N-EUPEX coupling housing is made of high-quality cast iron while the flexible element is made of nitrile butadiene rubber. Varying degrees of hardness are available for a variety of applications.

There is also a new N-EUPEX DK coupling which has a double-cardanic design and a split or ‘G’ hub which helps reduce the load on adjacent machinery components.

The N-BIPEX Claw Coupling is a universal damping shaft coupling especially adept at compensating for shaft misalignments. These Flender couplings handle high rotational speeds and relatively large bores with ease while providing higher maximum torques than many steel-built and more expensive competitors.

Flender Torsionally Rigid Couplings

Flender’s compact steel couplings offer an extremely precise transmission of high torques even under harsh operating conditions including extreme temperatures.

The strong and reliable ZAPEX ZW Gear Coupling is a double-jointed gear coupling designed to compensate for angular, parallel and axial shaft misalignment. They have small dimensions so their compact size is ideal for use in confined spaces. They excel in harsh operating conditions and are suitable for both directions of rotation as well as vertical installation. The ZAPEX ZW coupling lasts a long time and only requires very minimal maintenance.

The ARPEX ART Turbo Couplings is an all-steel multiple-disk coupling that is torsionally rigid and backlash-free. It is especially useful for high-speed applications that require reliable torque transfer during simultaneous shaft misalignment.

Flender Gearbox Repair Service

Flender-qualified engineers provide the Flender gearbox repair service available through Flender distributors YB Components. Only original Flender spare parts are used in the Flender repair service, plus all repairs retain the full Flender warranty.

Flender suppliers YB Components also offer a special support service for Flender spare parts. The spare Flender components are kept in stock for quick supply to anywhere around the UK and the rest of the world. There is also an express delivery service for Flender spare parts for emergencies.
