You say you need to reduce the transmission of shock loads from one shaft to another? That’s a classic application for shaft couplings; but really, couplings are application-intensive. They’re everywhere.

Drive Train Mining Application

Stromag Periflex® tyre couplings accommodate misalignment and minimise maintenance

In many industrial environments the transmission of power through the drive train requires couplings that are able to carry high torque while also accommodating misalignment and vibration. Stromag’s range of Periflex® Shaft Couplings use a highly flexible, rubber-fabric ‘tyre’ element to transmit up to 15,000 Nm of torque, while compensating for radial, axial and angular misalignment. Further, wear is limited to the rubber element to minimise the burden of maintenance.

Tugboat Winch

Stromag Vector® couplings up to the challenge for tugboat winch application

Tugboat winches operate under extremely harsh conditions. Often towing vessels that are many times the size and weight of themselves, their winches must overcome rough seas and extreme loads. Typically hydraulically driven, high pressure pumps are used to convert power from the ships’ engines to the winch.
