Behavior of friction and wear

The smooth and hard surface (crystalline structure) and the high thermal stability and resistance to lubricants, fuels, hydraulic fluids, dissolvents, etc. make polyamide an ideal material for components stressed by sliding, particularly for the coupling production.

While any metallic materials tend to "corrode" in case of dry running, slide combinations with polyamide and steel are operative without any lubrication and maintenance.

General description

The material polyamide allows for maintenance-free continuous operation with very low friction on the teeth.

Due to the double cardanic operation of BoWex® couplings restoring forces may be neglected in case of angular and radial displacements and periodic fluctuations in angular velocity do not arise.

BoWex® couplings can be assembled both vertically or horizontally with no need for any special assembly tools.
