Product characteristics
  • Available with slip ring and shift linkage for manual operation
Coupling description BoWex® Curved-tooth gear couplings® are flexible shaft connectionsfor a positive torque transmission and specifically suitable tocompensate for axial, radial and angular shaft misalignment. According to the well-known effect of curved-tooth gear couplings anyedge pressure in the spline in case of angular and radial displacementsis avoided so that BoWex couplings are almost free from wear.
General description
The material combination of steel hubs and polyamide sleevesallows for maintenance-free continuous operation with very low frictionon the teeth. BoWex® couplings can be assembled both vertically or horizontally with no need for any special assembly tools.
Behavior of friction and wear
The smooth and hard surface (crystalline structure) and the highthermal stability and resistance to lubricants, fuels, hydraulic fluids,dissolvents, etc. make polyamide an ideal material for componentsstressed by sliding, particularly for the coupling production. While anymetallic materials tend to "corrode" in case of dry running, slidecombinations with polyamide and steel are operative without anylubrication and maintenance.
