The clamping hub of the KM is equipped with the innovative Easy-Clamp-System, which allows a simple, with enough fit clearance, sliding. The necessary preload force for torque transmission is ensured here by a single, radially accessible screw per hub. This simple and reliable connection allows uncomplicated installation in a few steps, even in confined spaces. To achieve the lowest possible moment of inertia, the hubs are made of high-tensile strength aluminum.
The bellows and hubs are connected using the brass-wire press-fit method. In contrast to adhesive bonds, this joining process has unlimited fatigue life under critical operating conditions (-40 ° C to + 200 ° C, chemicals, etc.) and can safely introduce the transmission torque of each bellows layer into the hub.
KM series metal bellows couplings are available with nominal torques from 0.4 to 1300Nm.
