X Slot Shaft Couplings Photo
  • Torsionally Stiff
  • Zero Backlash
  • No Maintenance

The new X-Series is a high performance, easy to use, durable, full featured, radial (cross) slot flexible coupling with high torque capacity and exceptional torsional stiffness. It is offered in six different outside diameters and a wide range of bore sizes. It features the reliable, user friendly, integral clamp attachment.

Design Considerations

The integral clamp fasteners are located inline, on either side of the radial-slot flexing element. This provides the easiest assembly for most applications, where just moving the hex wrench across the flexing element is all it takes to tighten both fasteners.

Along with high torsional stiffness and torque capacity, the X-Series couplings are completely machined from a solid piece of material. This one piece integrity ensures that there is never a worry about wear, looseness and backlash, as found in multi-piece assemblies.

To make component assembly as easy and compact as possible, the X-Series features a bore relief. This allows shafts to be inserted into the centre of the coupling without affecting the misalignment capability of the coupling. By making the centre flexible section with a slightly larger ID than either shaft size, the shafts can be inserted into this area without contacting the flexible element ID during operation. 7075-T6 aluminium is the material of choice for the X-Series.

Test results

X-Series couplings have been subjected to rigorous reliability testing. During durablility tests, couplings are subjected to parallel offsets of up to five times their rated value and tested to failure. The XSeries couplings were tested for tens of millions of cycles at these exaggerated offsets and exhibited an exceptional premium performance capability.

In brief

Available in six outside diameter sizes, from 15mm to 50mm and any bore combination between the listed minimum and maximum. Couplings can be ordered with bores that are either millimetre, inch or combination of the two.
