INDUSTRIAL DRIVE SOLUTIONS
Twiflex has developed a range of high-speed couplings, based on proven resilient coupling design principles, to meet the demands of industry around the world.
The capabilities of this Multi-Point series may be extended through custom configurations manufactured to suit customers’ specific requirements.
Multi-Point shaft assemblies, including the fixed length configuration, can accommodate axial movement as well as radial and angular misalignments. There are no wearing parts and no bearings as the shafts are self-supported. In their shortest form they become a ‘close-coupled’ assembly. The couplings may be supplied with UJ or CV type joints to provide more torsional flexibility than a traditional shaft assembly, or where it is necessary to reduce transmitted noise or provide damping.
