TOOLFLEX® CF metal bellow-type couplings

Metal bellow-type coupling with flange connection TOOLFLEX CF

TOOLFLEX CF is a bellow-type coupling with a flange connection on one side (flange-to-shaft connection).

Up to size 45 the hubs are made of aluminium, from size 46 from steel. The bellow is made of stainless steel. The TOOLFLEX CF metal bellow-type coupling with flange connection provides a high friction torque. The metal bellow-type coupling is available both as frictionally engaged connections without feather keyway and as positive-locking connections with feather keyway.

Types of TOOLFLEX CF metal bellow-type coupling with flange connection:

  • type S: metal bellow-type coupling with compact bellow with 4 layers
  • type M: metal bellow-type coupling with bellow with 6 layers
  • special type with bellow with 1, 2 or 3 layers available
Features
  • Backlash-free, torsionally stiff metal bellow-type coupling with flange connection
  • Extremely short design
  • 25 % higher torques than with type M or type S possible
  • Higher torsion stiffness
  • Backlash-free, torsionally stiff
  • Maintenance-free
  • Suitable for high temperatures (max. 280 °C) due to welded connection
  • Particularly suitable for application on gearboxes
  • Flange-to-shaft connection
  • Optionally available with short bellow with 4 layers (type S) or bellow with 6 layers (type M)
  • Torques from 35 - 340 Nm
  • Special type with bellow with 1, 2 or 3 bellows available

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.

Metal bellow-type couplings by KTR Systems:

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.
