The VULASTIK L coupling is an axial pluggable highly flexible coupling developed for a variety of different applications. Four rubber qualities and silicone are available in order to tune the coupling to the various system requirements. VULASTIK L couplings are available with one elastic element in standard design or as dual execution with two parallel elements. The main parts of the VULASTIK L coupling are the hub and a flanged casing.Between these, the disc-shaped element is arranged. This disc element is vulcanized at its inner radius, the outer radius is connected to the flanged casing by a plug-in toothing. This toothing provides the axial plug-in feature and compensation of shaft displacements.


Maximum flexibility is provided by different coupling designs for installation in bell-type housings or free-standing installations, designed with single or dual arrangement of natural rubber or silicone
There is an extremely compact design for more efficient engines with high power density
This spline enables axial engagement with ease of assembly
Integrated supporting rings protect the spline against slipping through or developing cracks in the gearing teeth
