Disc Couplings

We offer Steel disc couplings from three different suppliers Utkur, Lovejoy and Miki Pulley. Steel disc couplings offer high Speed and temperatures but require no lubrication like other steel couplings. They are available in a standard coupling design as well as a spacer design.

Utkur Disc Coupling

The Disc type Metalflex couplings from Utkur have a high power to weight ratio while still being able to work at high temperatures. They are also Zero Backlash so they are great for applications that require a high precision alignment. These couplings are now available off the shelf ready for immediate dispatch. Other features of the Utkursh Metal Disc Couplings include.

  • Accommodate angular, parallel and axial misalignments
  • Visual inspection of transmission elements (Disc)
  • Low axial stiffness with high torsional rigidity
  • High speed capacity
  • With and without spacer couplings
  • Varying spacer lengths
  • Torque range up to 13367 Nm
  • Couplings to API specification available on request

Composite Disc

The Zero-Max CD coupling is a unique hybrid coupling, combining the best features found in both steel and elastomeric couplings. Through its new open arm disc design and use of rugged composite materials, the coupling offers the high misalignment capacity found in many elastomeric couplings, but with higher torsional stiffness. Compared to steel disc couplings, these couplings offer superior damping and isolation shock and vibrational loads, including elimination of fretting corrosion. Double Flex & Spacer couplings are also available. Hubs also available in aluminium and stainless steel on indent.

Ruland Disc

Discflex™ is available in single and double disc styles with bore sizes ranging from 1/8" to 1 1/4" in the inch series and 3mm to 30mm in the metric series. The couplings are an assembly of two anodized aluminum hubs, multiple flat stainless steel disc springs and a center spacer for double disc styles. The center spacer is available in a choice of anodized aluminum or insulating acetal for electrical isolation.  This results in a high performance motion control coupling with excellent high speed capabilities up to 10,000 rpm, strength and torsional stiffness characteristics, and low inertia for today's highly responsive systems.

Servoflex - Miki Pulley

The SFS ServoClass Couplings are also designed to meet the precision positioning requirements and high reverse-load characteristics. With higher torque ratings this coupling suits larger applications. ServoClass Couplings feature zero-backlash flexible metal discs. This high-performance coupling has high torsional stiffness and low inertia to avoid system resonance. Yet it is remarkably flexible as a result of its double-flex-disc design, which provides exceptional misalignment capacity. Available in single (‘S’), double (‘W’) and spacer (’G’) type.

SFC couplings feature zero-backlash flexible metal discs and zero-backlash "keyless" clamp-type mounting hubs. This high-performance coupling has high torsional stiffness and low inertia to avoid system resonance. It is remarkably flexible as a result of its double-flex-disc design, which provides exceptional misalignment capacity. This flexibility reduces reaction loads, thereby extending the operating life of the connected components while providing smoother system performance.

Jaure Disc Coupling

The Lovejoy/Jaure disc coupling is a great low maintenance coupling. It has been developed using the latest technology, Finite Element Analysis, to create a high torque, long life coupling. The discs are made from a high-grade stainless steel, ensuring not only a high strength and high endurance to fatigue, but also resistance to most chemicals. Furthermore, the discs can be covered with a low coefficient of friction coating to improve the resistance to fretting wear, which is the biggest cause of disc coupling failure. 
Disc couplings to meet A.P.I. 610 available on request.
