Rigid shaft couplings CLAMPEX KTR 700

Rigid shaft couplings for backlash-free, bending and torsionally stiff shaft-to-shaft connection

CLAMPEX® clamping elements are shaft-hub-connections allowing for a backlash-free and non-positive connection between cylindric smooth shafts and hubs without keyway. The clamping elements are clamped via integrated screws which are used for non-destructive untightening of the clamping elements in addition (Here series 50 forms the only exception). Depending on the type the clamping elements are either untightened merely by declamping the screws or additionally pulling off the individual elements of the clamping set from each other.

Among others, CLAMPEX® clamping elements are preferred as an alternative to feather key connections.

Advantages of our rigid shaft couplings CLAMPEX KTR 700:

  • Material saving by smaller shaft and hub dimensions
  • Simplified production processes
  • Suitable for modern drive systems
  • Easy assembly and disassembly with standard tools
  • Ideal for drives with high vibratory loads, e. g. acceleration and braking
  • Produce connections that are permanently free from destruction, i. e. no shearing off of keyways, dowel pins, pins, etc.
  • Specifically suitable for high-speed drives
  • Insensitive to dirt - Reusable repeatedly
  • Overload protection of the machine components by slipping (repeated slipping should be avoided)
  • Low stress concentration on the shaft (stress concentration factor on request) Corrosion- and acid-resistant surface coating for food-processing industry, marine industry and chemical industry on request
  • Simple calculation of the clamping connection
  • Backlash-free, bending and torsionally stiff shaft-to-shaft connection
  • No compensation for radial and axial shaft displacements
  • Simultaneous transmission of torque and axial force
  • Transmissible torques from 62 Nm to 8,000 Nm

The transmission data mentioned in the catalogue are parameters found out by calculations. Subject to tests and the physical coefficient of friction slight deviations from the transmission values may arise.
