Title (EN) FLEXIBLE COUPLING
(FR) ACCOUPLEMENT FLEXIBLE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A flexible coupling (10) includes a resilient body (12) for transferring torque and compensating for angular misalignment between first and second shaft members (14, 16). A first pair of arms (28) connects the first shaft member (14) interlockingly to the resilient body (12) at one end (20) thereof, a second pair of arms (30) connects the second shaft member (16) interlockingly to the resilient body (12) at the other end (22), and first and second retaining members (32, 34) releasably couple the resilient body (12) respectively to the first and second pairs of arms (28, 30) at the opposite ends (22, 20). Preferably, the resilient body (12) is of elastomeric material strengthened by a plurality of internal metal reinforcement members (86).
(FR)Accouplement flexible (10) comprenant un corps flexible (12) pour transmettre un moment de force et compenser un defaut d"alignement angulaire entre les membres d"un premier et d"un second axe (14, 16). Une premiere paire de bras (28) relie le membre du premier axe (14) de maniere solidaire au corps flexible (12) a une extremite (20) de celui-ci, une seconde paire de bras (30) relie le membre du second axe (16) de maniere solidaire au corps flexible (12) a l"autre extremite (22) et les premiere et seconde pieces de retenue (32, 34) relient de maniere declenchable le corps flexible (12) respectivement a la premiere et a la seconde paire de bras (28, 30) aux extremites opposees (22, 20). De preference, le corps flexible (12) est un materiau elastomere renforce par une pluralite de membres de renforcement metalliques internes (86).
