Reich Couplings are high quality couplings available through YB Components in the UK
The ARCUSAFLEX coupling is a highly flexible flywheel coupling with an axial plug-in facility, providing a torsionally soft connection between an internal combustion engine and a driven machine.
The highly torsionally flexible ACRUSAFLEX-VSK coupling is used in a drive train when a large shaft displacement or an extended distance between the drive and the driven components must be compensated. Depending on the arrangement of the drive train components, a non-uniform motion of the speed may result, and since cardan shafts exhibit some torsion flexibility, the mass of the prime mover and driven machine may induce a resonant system.
The MULTI CROSS FORTE is a highly flexible coupling with progressive torsional stiffness. The special characteristic of all MULTI CROSS FORTE couplings is the use of transmission elements, which are alike within the same type series, but their number vary according to the size of the coupling.
The barrel coupling consists of a sleeve provided with semicircular toothing around its internal diameter and a hub that is externally toothed in a similar way. A series of cylindrical barrels, of hardened steel, are inserted in the holes formed by this toothing to act as power transmission elements. Covers with their corresponding special seals serve to assure the perfect tightness of the inner zone, preventing the penetration of dust and guaranteeing the continuity of the necessary lubrication.
