C-Flex Now Offers A Solution To Your SOLENOID Applications
C-Flex Bearing Co., Inc. offers flat flexure designs that can eliminate the need for helical springs. All necessary pre-load forces, linear spring rates, radial stiffness, and fatigue properties necessary to obtain 50M plus cycles of operation can be achieved.

For prototype developments, we offer FEA analysis to optimize details prior to producing your prototype or production units.

Our flat flexures will meet your performance specifications and offer NO FRICTION!

C-Flex couplings 
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 prior to installation, makes them ideal for retrofit applications.

Constructed using high strength hardened stainless steel or glass impregnated polyamide flexures, the couplings require no maintenance, providing years of trouble-free life, even in contaminated environments. Directionally independent, they can provide the same torsional rigidity and offset capability regardless of the rotation direction.

The use of C-Flex couplings in mechanical systems to connect rotating shafts will result in lower energy usage and bearing failure, since less stress is placed upon bearings. Misalignment forces on the bearings of a rotating system generates heat which is wasted energy. The use of C-Flex couplings will minimize these misalignment forces and result in a more energy efficient system.

C-Flex couplings will provide superior technology at the lowest cost. Selection of the correct coupling for your application should result in exceptional long life, even in the most arduous environment.

C-Flex couplings are normally provided with two set screws aligned at 90 degrees to each other for clamping to the shaft, however, they may be provided with C-Flex patent pending progressive clamp bushings, which will allow for secure mark free clamping of the coupling to a shaft. A collet style shaft locking design is presently under development for the lattice servo coupling and will be available soon.

Custom designs for greater torque capability, higher offsets, or special locating features can be provided upon request.

C-Flex Bearing Co., Inc. is a privately owned small business located in upstate New York. We have been incorporated since 1993. Under the current administration, we have been in business since 1988 however under different names. We began manufacturing turbine components for the gas turbine industry. In 1992, we generalized into basic machine shop work. In 1997, the three companies were merged into C-Flex Bearing Co., Inc. with the focus on our one product line, the frictionless bearing or pivot.
