Flexible Shaft Couplings
Product Announcement from Berg W.M., Inc.
Berg has now added flexible shaft couplings to its extensive coupling family. Flexible shaft couplings are ideal for transmitting power and motion over, under, around or through obstacles. Their design allows for the problems of misalignment or vibration to be easily overcome. Flexible shaft couplings consists of several precision components. They are as follows:
Core - the core or power transmitting component of a flexible shaft assembly is constructed of quality wire wound in layers of opposing directions on a single center wire. They come in a variety of materials, construction and sizes ranging from 1/8 to 1-5/8 inches in diameter. Standard cores cover a broad range of operating requirements up to 10HP and speeds from 0 - 50,000 RPM. Each is designed to transmit power efficiently within a specific operating criteria.
Casing - the casing or flexible conduit that supports the core during operation comes in a variety of designs for differing environmental conditions. Casings are constructed of carefully chosen materials to withstand the effects of dust, oil, moisture, abrasion and temperature extremes. They are manufactured to exhibit a minimum amount of stretch and twist providing a uniform bearing surface for the core. Standard flexible shaft couplings are provided with a casing that has a steel liner, steel and cloth reinforcing braids and a rubber cover to withstand a wide range of requirements.
Since 1967, W.M. Berg has consistently set the standard of excellence as the world's leading provider of miniature precision mechanical components. Started as a privately-held family business, Berg is now part of Rexnord Industries, a world leader in controls and automation.
