Gear Couplings, called gears because of the large size of the teeth, a gear coupling is used for transmitting torque between two linear shafts. Gear shafts are made from two flexible joints connected by a spindle, which creates a high torque density. With its large teeth, the gear coupling is ideal for applications that will face a lot of misalignment.
At KTR, we provide two main products of gear coupling, namely BoWex® and GEARex® coupling.
The BoWex® Curved-tooth gear couplings are designed to transmit torque from 5-2,000 Nm on temperatures from -25°C to over 100°C, making it ideal for a range of environments. With an axial plug-in, the BoWex® gear couplings are easy to install and save time on maintenance and repairs, as any edge pressure is avoided, making the couplings almost free from wear.
The GEARex® couplings are made from steel with grease lubrication and include a toroidal sealing ring correspond to the AGMA (American Gear Manufacturers Association) standards. The flexible shaft connections have an incredible high power density of up to 2,750,000 Nm and can compensate for axial, radial and angular shaft displacements.
At KTR, we believe in innovation.
At KTR, we are a leading manufacturer of high-grade power transmission technology, braking and cooling systems, and hydraulic components. With a strong belief in innovation, we use over 50 years of knowledge and experience to create and supply the best couplings available for your business.
With a range of products customized to your application, our gear couplings are designed to improve efficiency and save time and money in maintenance and downtime.
Combining temperature, shock and vibration resistance with a high torque density, our gear couplings are perfect for a range of industries, environments and applications featuring misaligned shafts.
We provide the gear coupling and tools you need to keep your company in motion and make sure that nothing slows you down.
