K Couplings are the standard for our highly flexible couplings. They feature a modular design and can be integrated into your drive system with a high degree of flexibility. This makes this type of coupling an ideal and cost-effective choice for many applications in a wide range of industrial sectors.
K Couplings dampen torsional vibrations and shift the natural frequency of the system below idle speed. In addition, K Couplings balance axial, radial, and angular displacements. The operational stability and service life of your machine or your vehicle are increased, which in turn increases availability and reduces life cycle costs.
Outrigger-bearing models and models with torsional limiting device are optional.
Typical applications: rail vehicles, construction vehicles, engine test rigs, natural gas compressor stations, general industry.
Advantages and benefits
Resonance speeds are shifted into non-critical speed ranges. The system runs quieter, increasing comfort when operating the machine or vehicle.
Elastomer elements dampen torsional vibration peaks that occur in the driveline. Thanks to their elasticity, these elements reduce the stresses on the driveline caused by internal combustion engines or load-side units with their natural fluctuations in torque. Your machine or vehicle runs with a high degree of operational durability. And that increases productivity.
The coupling takes the load off all of the drive components, increasing their service life and reducing maintenance costs. The net result is a positive impact on the total cost of ownership for your machine or vehicle – not to mention preventing consequential expenses arising from downtime.
Its modularity makes this coupling extremely flexible with respect to function and design. You get a coupling that is precisely matched to your driveline’s technical and design requirements. Standardized components ensure an optimal cost/benefit ratio.
The K Coupling features a high torque capacity. You save installation space while at the same time transferring high torque safely and reliably.
