Flexible coupling, ELCO type

The torsionally resilient ELCO coupling is responsible for effectively dampening the shocks and vibrations that occur in drive systems during operation. It also permits limited radial and angular misalignments of the shafts being connected and absorbs longitudinal displacements.

The installation of a correctly designed ELCO coupling guarantees the safe transmission of forces and offers extensive protection of the connected machine shafts against vibration damage. The ELCO coupling has a proven track record in tens of thousands of drive systems thanks to its adaptable construction and high-quality design.
