The Geislinger Carbotorq® coupling is a torsionally flexible coupling, which combines advanced composite material and silicone elastomer. The lightweight Geislinger Carbotorq® coupling compensates radial, axial, angular misalignments and has torsional elastic properties. With its low reaction force, the Geislinger Carbotorq® significantly reduces the bearing loads, and thus, increases the system service life.
The Geislinger Carbotorq® coupling consist of two advanced composite membranes and an elastic silicon element. The integral design provides constant misalignment values under all circumstances.
The coupling tunes the torsional vibration behaviour of the drive line, whereas the torsional stiffness of the heat resistant silicone elastomer element can be adjusted to the torsional vibration demands. The composite materials also provide high internal damping for high-frequency vibrations.
