Flexible element comprising a variable number of flexible bushes, depending on the torque to be transmitted.

1 Inner with tapped or smooth holes (normal mounting or on fly wheel).­
2 Precompressed natural rubber bonded to inner 1 and to outer the half-cylinders 3.
3 Half-cylinders bonded to the rubber.
4 Outer housing ensuring precompression of rubber by exerting pressure on the half-cylinders 3.

Steel disks:

5 Flange to which the inner studs are attached (normal mounting).
6 Disk to which the studs are attached (flywheel mounting).

Die cast steel hubs:
7 The two hubs are identical. They may be bolted to disks 5 or 6 depending on the mounting used.

The AXOFLEX coupling is designed with the following features:

– Radial disassembly without moving the machines that are coupled (usually very large machines).
– Precompression of the rubber which limits operation under tension.


Good axial flexibility which allows great axial displacement, for example in the case of conical rotor machines.
