Title: COUPLING ELEMENT HAVING VIBRATION DAMPING
Abstract:
The invention relates to a coupling for connection of an encoder to an electrical machine, wherein the coupling comprises an encoder shaft end piece, which can be coupled to an encoder shaft, and a machine shaft end piece, which can be coupled to a machine shaft, wherein at least one end piece has at least one carrier. The carriers have a cavity filled with granular material, preferably steel powder, which effects a dampening of vibrations and impacts. The invention further relates to a suitable production method by means of additive production and to the use of such a coupling.
