ARCUSAFLEX ® Highly flexible, axially pluggable rubber disc coupling for internal combustion engines. Simply Powerful.

ARCUSAFLEX ®

Highly flexible rubber disc coupling for internal combustion engine drives.

The ARCUSAFLEX ® coupling (short form: AC) is a highly torsionally flexible flange coupling with an axial plug-in facility, providing a torsionally soft connection between an internal combustion engine and a driven machine.

The ARCUSAFLEX ® coupling (short form: AC) is a highly torsionally flexible flange coupling with an axial plug-in facility, providing a torsionally soft connection between an internal combustion engine and a driven machine. The highly flexible torque transmission characteristic is achieved by a disc-shaped rubber element that is subjected to a torsional load and enables both the absorption of high torsional vibrations and the compensation of major misalignments. Various vulcanisates are available to achieve optimum adaptation to the given application conditions: A natural / synthetic caoutchouc mixture is the standard version for application temperatures of up to 80 °C, more heat resistant mixtures for up to 100 °C / 120 °C and a silicone mixture for higher application temperatures up to 130 °C.

The inside diameter of the rubber element is vulcanized directly to a hub body or bolt-on sleeve. The toothed profile on the circumference of the element provides a virtually backlash-free, positive plug-in connection to the coupling flange when in service.

The ARCUSAFLEX ® flange coupling series covers a torque range from 210 Nm to 72 000 Nm. Element versions of different dynamic torsional stiffnesses are available for optimizing the torsional vibration range. The flange connection dimensions of ARCUSAFLEX ® couplings comply predominantly with the SAE J 620 and DIN 6281 standards. Other flange dimensions or overall lengths can be provided on request.

Shaft-to-shaft connections when required can be met by ARCUSAFLEX ® shaft couplings which consist of an ARCUSAFLEX ® flange coupling of the standard design equipped with a second hub. Type approvals from a number of leading classification society have been obtained. If required, couplings complete with a fail-safe device can also be supplied.

ARCUSAFLEX ® couplings comply with ATEX explosion protection. They are certified according to directive 2014 / 34 / EU and may be used in hazardous locations (categories M2, 2 + 3). ATEX documentation to supplement the operating instructions is available on request.



The technical data applies only to the complete coupling or the corresponding coupling elements. It is the customer’s/user’s responsibility to ensure there are no inadmissible loads acting on any of the components. In particular, existing connections, e.g. bolted connections, must be checked with regard to the torques to be transmitted. If necessary, further measures, such as additional reinforcement with pins, may be necessary It is the customer’s/ user’s responsibility to make sure the dimensioning of the shaft and keyed or other connection, e.g. shrinking or clamping connection, is correct. All components that can rust are protected against corrosion as standard.

REICH have an extensive range of couplings and coupling systems to cover nearly every drive configuration. Customized solutions can be developed and manufactured even in small batches or as prototypes. In addition calculation programs are available for all necessary dimensioning.
