ROTEX® clamping hubs

Jaw coupling with clamping hubs for spline bores acc. to DIN and SAE

ROTEX clamping hubs are torsionally flexible elastomer couplings with clamping hubs and particularly suitable for applications with reversing operation.

Our clamping couplings are provided with spline bores acc. to DIN and SAE as a standard (for standard splines see catalogue). Clamping, i. e. axial fastening of the hub, is realised via cap screws. Easy assembly and disassembly of the hubs of this clamping coupling.

  • Fail-safe clamping coupling / spline coupling / spline hubs
  • Standard hub material steel
  • Suitable in combination with spline bores acc. to DIN 5480, DIN 5482, SAE J498 as well as DIN 9611 / ISO 500 (p. t. o. shaft), DIN 5463 (ISO 14), DIN 5481 and DIN 5472
  • Balancing based on 3D-CAD data
  • Particularly suitable for applications with reversing operation
  • Complying with ATEX (acc. to EU directive 2014/34/EU)
  • UKEX compliant (according to UKEX Directive SI 2016:1107)
  • Easy assembly and disassembly via cap screws
  • Vibration-damping shaft coupling
  • Axial, radial, angular compensation
  • Maintenance-free

ROTEX® torsionally flexible jaw couplings are elastomer couplings characterized by a compact design.
In spite of low weights and mass moments of inertia of the elastomer couplings they are able to transmit high torques. The compact shaft couplings are characterized by a long service life and sound operating characteristics generated by allover machining.

Thanks to the elastomer (elastomer spider) between the coupling hubs of the jaw couplings shocks respectively torsional vibrations in the drive train are damped. The high temperature-resistant spider material T-PUR® (elastomer) is available in various degrees of hardness. The torsionally flexible ROTEX couplings are used in almost every range of general machinery and plant engineering.

Overview: torsionally flexible shaft couplings / elastomer couplings

Properties of torsionally flexible jaw couplings:
ROTEX shaft couplings consist of two hubs (aluminium or steel) and a spider (elastomer ring / cam ring) made of T-PUR. The different degrees of hardness of the T-PUR-spider allow to adjust the level of damping and torsional stiffness of the elastomer coupling.

ROTEX couplings require few mounting space and thus enable easy assembly/disassembly. The numerous types provide for maximum flexibility and meet with the different mounting requirements through various types of hubs.

Function of torsionally flexible jaw couplings:
Jaw couplings ensure torsional vibration-damping power transmission and absorb shocks generated by machines with irregular operation.
In contrast to flexible couplings the connecting elements of which are subjected to bending and therefore to earlier wear, the flexible teeth of ROTEX® couplings (elastomers) are subjected to compressive stress only. The benefit of the elastomer coupling thus is to resist significantly higher loads.

The elastomers become deformed with load and high speeds. Sufficient expansion space must be provided.

All sizes of ROTEX® elastomer couplings have a maximum torsion angle of 5°. They can be mounted both horizontally and vertically.

Material of torsionally flexible jaw couplings:
Our elastomer material T-PUR is resistant to higher temperatures and has a considerably longer service life than common polyurethanes. From a visual point of view we marked the T-Pur material by the colours orange (92 Shore A), purple (98 Shore A) and light green (64 Shore D).

The previous polyurethane spiders in the colours yellow, red and natural white with green marking of teeth continue to be available on request.
