Laylink Couplings | Twiflex

The Laylink coupling employs pre-compressed rubber blocks but in a link type configuration. The links are arranged circumferentially between the driving and driven flanges.

The power and speed of the application is matched by selecting from a range of link designs, the number of links employed and the mounting pitch circle diameter. Our literature refers to four standard link designs; however we regularly vary the bush type, rubber mix and link design to achieve particular operational characteristics.

Advantages of laylink couplings

Computer simulation is used to test and calculate the operational characteristics of designs.

The Laylink couplings have a high torsional stiffness which allow them to transmit particularly large torques and support heavy floating shafts, whilst the link configuration allows the couplings to accommodate large levels of misalignment and movement between the driving and driven units.

Combining layrub and laylink

Our latest development is the integration of the Layrub and Laylink product by employing standard Layrub bushes within link configuration. This produces a coupling which is torsionally relatively soft whilst the link configuration allows the coupling to accommodate high misalignment.
