Flexible Couplings BIPEX Series
BIPEX couplings are torsionally flexible with low torsional backlash. They are outstanding for their particularly compact construction. BIPEX couplings link machine shafts.
BIPEX couplings are specially suited for electric motor drives which are well aligned and have uniform torque loads.
BIPEX couplings are suitable for mounting horizontally, vertically or at any desired angle. The coupling parts can be arranged as required on the shaft extensions to be connected.
The cam ring is mounted with low backlash and achieves progressive torsional stiffness, i.e. torsional stiffness increases in proportion to capacity utilization.
The BIPEX coupling is fail-safe, i.e. if the cam ring is worn, the cast cams of the coupling hub provide for emergency operation.
The BIPEX coupling is available as a catalog standard in 13 sizes with rated torque of between 13.5 Nm and 3700 Nm. The coupling is suitable for ambient temperatures of between –30 °C and +80 °C.
BIPEX couplings are particularly suited for electric motor drives which have a uniform torque load and are well aligned. BIPEX couplings are frequently fitted and used in motor bell housings.
