TOOLFLEX® S metal bellow-type couplings

Compact and easy to assemble - the metal bellow-type coupling TOOLFLEX S

The metal bellow-type coupling TOOLFLEX S is characterized by a metal bellow with 4 layers convincing by its compact design and high torsion stiffness.

The clamping hubs of the bellow-type coupling allow for easy and quick assembly. The hubs up to size 45 are made of aluminium, from size 46 made of steel. The bellow is made of stainless steel.

Our range of bellow-type couplings includes both frictionally engaged connections without feather keyway and positive-locking connections with feather keyway.

  • Backlash-free, torsionally stiff bellow-type couplings made of metal
  • Compact by its short bellow
  • Higher torsion spring stiffness
  • Hub with thread for setscrews for applications with low torques
  • Optionally available with feather keyway (no backlash-free shaft-hub-connection)
  • Torques from 0.1 to 15 Nm
  • Compensation of axial, radial and angular displacements
  • Maintenance-free

Torsionally stiff and flexible: TOOLFLEX metal bellow-type couplings

TOOLFLEX is a torsionally stiff and flexible metal bellow-type coupling (all-metal coupling) with a bellow made of stainless steel and coupling hubs made of aluminium.
The coupling hubs of our metal bellow-type coupling in size 55 and 65 and as a type KN are made of steel.

The metal bellow ensures optimum compensation of axial, radial and angular displacements with conformal torque transmission. At the same time the geometrical shape of the metal bellow-type coupling provides high torsion stiffness and a low mass moment of inertia. Apart from that it is resistant to media effects and critical operating conditions.

Applications of our metal bellow-type coupling TOOLFLEX: Metal bellow-type coupling for drive technology, automation technology, medical technology, servo drives, packaging technology, machine tools, etc.
For the different applications and mounting conditions of the TOOLFLEX metal bellow-type couplings two different bellow lengths are available.

Operating principle of a bellow-type coupling:

The connection between bellow and hubs is made in three different versions: For sizes 5 to 12 the metal bellow is bonded to the hubs. That is why these sizes are permissible for ambient temperatures from -30 °C to +100 °C. For sizes 16 to 45 the bellow-hub-connection is generated by a flanged insert connection which ensures torque transmission of every single bellow layer. The bellow-hub-connection of sizes 55 and 65 is made by a welded connection.
