Bell housing installations in pleasure crafts
Increased demands on drive systems require special solutions within the use of highly flexible couplings. These demands include a silent and smooth operation even at low running speeds during idling. To meet these requirements, VULKAN has developed the TORFLEX, a dual-stage coupling with progressive stiffness characteristics. Recognizable less vibration can be achieved due to the optimized design. The TORFLEX coupling is exclusively intended for installation in bellhousing applications and can be used where the gearbox input shaft has an external spline or will be used as oil press fit.
Torsionally soft at idling speed for highest comfort requirements
Progressive stiffness characteristic for the best power transmission at high loads for a high system availability
Compact and short-build design for an easy handling
Optimized design for common SAE flywheels and SAE housings for a high solution flexibilty
