Exciting news at C-Flex Bearing this week! Testing for a new product line is moving along great!
To clarify, this product isn't exactly "new" but it will be an addition to the current successful coupling line. C-Flex currently offers 48 standard coupling sizes. We offer both servo and lattice styles as well as all metal or SUPERPLASTIC.(read more)
What is the C-Flex Pivot Bearing, or Flex Pivot?
It is a flexure based bearing, utilizing internal flat crossed springs, capsuled in a cylindrical housing, to provide precise rotation with low hysteresis and no frictional losses. The C-Flex bearing will offer indefinite life when used within its rated load and rotation values.(read more)
Lattice and Servo Couplings available in English, Metric, Stainless Steel or Super Plastic. The C-FLEX lattice servo and C-FLEX lattice couplings are revolutionary, patented designs which combine the best characteristics of bellows, disc and beam couplings into a single integrated component. FEATURES AND USES:
Fastening, Joining, and Assembly
C-Flex Super Plastic Torsional Damping Coupling stabilizes high precision systems by dampening transient torque variations. The new patented design offers high torque loads with zero backlash. The stabilizing advantage offered by the super plastic version of the C-Flex coupling is ideal for extremely accurate positioning in industries such as medical, packaging, semiconductor and more.(read more)
Designed to couple two rotating shafts together, C-Flex couplings can accommodate large misalignments while transmitting high torque loads with zero backlash. Their construction provides for a low moment of inertia and minimal impact upon system dynamics. A large through hole allows for smaller coupling utilization for fitting larger shafts and the fact that they can be disassembled prio...(read more)
The C-Flex bearing or "pivot" is a cylindrical, limited rotational bearing, with a high relative radial and axial stiffness which is available in low, medium, or high torsional spring rates. It is typically available for maximum deflection angles of +/-30°, but various configurations are supplied upon request. Torsional stiffness ranges from .0003 Lb-In/degree to 7.8023 L...(read more)

The C-Flex patent pending progressive clamp bushing utilizes force multiplying technology to generate large clamping forces with multi-surface contact.
Proper sequential clamping is required to achieve optimum results. First, fully tighten collar set screw onto first bushing clamping surface, then tighten second collar set screw onto second bushing clamp surface.(read more)
The C-Flex Bearing Solution: Not a new concept but growing in popularity as a preference for motion control.
C-Flex bearings are based upon proven design concepts used for years in a wide variety of applications. The growing popularity of the C-Flex bearing is not only due to the quality of the product but it's adaptation in today's GREEN TECHNOLOGY efforts. O...(read more)
The use of C-Flex couplings in mechanical systems to connect rotating shafts will result in lower energy usage and eliminate bearing failure, since less stress is placed upon bearings. Misalignment forces on bearings of a rotating system generates heat which is wasted energy. Use of C-Flex couplings will minimize these misalignment forces and result in a more energy efficient system.(read more)
C-Flex Bearing Co., Inc. manufactures frictionless bearings or pivots. These are limited motion mechanical components used in applications requiring the utmost precision. Since the pivot is our only current product line, sizes from 1/8" single and double end to 1" single and double end are typically in stock. If an out of stock situation should occur, delivery will fall with...(read more)
C-Flex Bearing Co., Inc. considers itself a smart business and knows that tight cycle times with strong product quality keeps the customer satisfied. While the main focus is to reduce cost, it is never at the expense of quality at C-Flex Bearing. We rely on reductions in production variability in cycle times while enforcing error proofing at every level. This means best practices in the...(read more)
