Product Announcement from KTR Corporation

BoWex® Junior-Image

BoWex® couplings can be assembled both vertically or horizontally with no need for any special assembly tools.

Product characteristics

  • Curved tooth plug-in coupling (two-part) made from nylon
  • Maintenance-free due to material combination nylon
  • Compensation for shaft misalignment; axial - radial - angular
  • Low own weight as well as low flywheel torques
  • Axial plug-in - easy assembly
  • Operative range -25°C to +100°C
  • Available from stock with finish bore for standard shafts
  • Including feather keyway according to DIN 6885 page 1 and thread for setscrew
  • Tolerance of the bore + 0.05 - 0.1 feather keyway ± 0.08

Coupling description

BoWex® Curved-tooth gear couplings® are flexible shaft connections for a positive torque transmission and specifically suitable to compensate for axial, radial and angular shaft misalignment. According to the well-known effect of curved-tooth gear couplings any edge pressure in the spline in case of angular and radial displacements is avoided so that BoWex couplings are almost free from wear.
