The guiding principle of Designed to Customer is the recipe for success behind REICH. In addition to the catalogue products, we supply our customers with couplings developed to their specific requirements. The designs are mainly based on modular components to provide effective and efficient customer solutions. The special nature of our close cooperation with our partners ranges from; consulting, development, design, manufacture and integration to existing environments, to customer-specific production, logistics concepts and after-sales service - worldwide. This customer-oriented concept applies to both standard products and production in small batch sizes.
REICH has decades of experience for special challenges in power generation and is the market leader in equipping systems used for permanent or temporary power supply and in emergency power supply:
combined heat and power unit aggregates
stationary power generators
decentralized power systems
biogas and natural gas applications
REICH, 70 years of experience in the specific requirements of mobile applications These include: Farming and forestry, agricultural engineering, railway and traffic systems, and construction and mining machinery. Whether on land, sea or air - Mobility imposes specific requirements.
pump drive/splitter gearbox
REICH, we have decades of experience for special challenges in test bench technology. Coupling systems developed by REICH are used in:
racing engine test benches
roller dynamometer test benches
REICH, we have decades of experience in the specific requirements of chemical / pump and compressor engineering and are market leader in the equipment of mobile units. Flexible Reich couplings transmit power in pump and compressor drives in a smooth and damping way. Your drive train is thus subject to less loading.
stationary/mobile screw compressors
reciprocating compressors for diesel engines
centrifugal pumps for diesel engines
REICH has more than 70 years of experience in the specific requirements of marine engineering. REICH-couplings are used in a broad range of marine applications on ships, ferries, lifeboats and in ports. In main propulsion drives between the diesel engine and the gearbox such as
bow/stern and transom rudder
on-board power supply generator sets
pumps and compressors
REICH has decades of experience in the specific requirements of the industry. REICH offers numerous solutions for:
Material handling and belt conveyor drives
Steel works equipment
Crane engineering etc.

Drive shafts are used in a drive train when a large shaft displacement or an extended distance between the drive and the driven components must be compensated. Depending on the arrangement of the drive train components, a non-uniform motion of the speed may result, and since drive shafts exhibit some torsional flexibility, the mass of the prime mover and driven machine may induce a resonant system.
If the prime mover is an internal combustion engine, a highly flexible ARCUSAFLEX-VSK U-joint coupling (short form: AC-VSK) is required to protect the drive train from dynamic overload. Highly flexible AC-VSK U-joint couplings are capable of shifting resonant ranges below the lowest operating speed and of reducing resonance-induced vibratory torques under reversed stresses to tolerable levels.
The highly flexible AC-VSK U-joint coupling is mounted on the engine flywheel, ahead of the drive train with drive shaft. The AC-VSK U-joint coupling has an axial and radial integral bearing to accommodate the weight of the drive shaft and its reaction forces.
The AC-VSK coupling series is available in nine standard sizes covering a torque range from 390 Nm to 20 000 Nm. REICH have an extensive range of couplings 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.
Application of the highly flexible ARCUSAFLEX-VSK U-joint couplings
For use with combustion engines in conjunction with drive shafts for splitter gearboxes, torque converters, ship gearboxes, control gears and pump drives, for example in drives of construction equipment, excavators, cranes, marine propulsion, locomotives, pump installations and dump trucks.
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.
