RINGFEDER TNM Elastic Couplings
RINGFEDER TNM are torsionally flexible, puncture-proof shaft couplings with two metal hubs with front claws and a rubber element. They transmit torque through pressure-stressed elastic buffers connected to each other in an intermediate ring, which absorbs shocks and torsional vibrations. This element is oil resistant and electrically conductive. TNM coupling hubs are made of grey cast iron as unbored.
TNM couplings can be used for both directions of rotation and each mounting position.
Formerly they were sold under the TSCHAN NORMEX designation.
Series of TNM Couplings
We offer flexible TNM couplings in two versions:
Basic Design with One-Piece Hubs
Each of the hubs therefore consists of only one part.
When replacing a worn flexible element or disassembling and assembling, it is necessary to move the individual machine parts.
Design with Claw Ring
One of the hubs is composed of two parts – a flange hub and an outer claw ring, which is bolted to the hub.
When replacing the worn flexible element, or disassembling and assembling, it is not necessary to move the individual machine parts, but it is sufficient to disassemble the two-piece hub.
In addition to these basic series, it is also possible to order couplings with a spacer (TNM H), couplings with a brake drum (TNM EBT and TNM GBT), couplings with a brake disc (TNM ETW and TNM GTW) or couplings with a flange (TNM LE and TNM LG). If you are interested, please use the form below.
- One-piece hubs
- Elastic ring
Couplings Fields of Use
RINGFEDER TNM (formerly TSCHAN NORMEX) elastic couplings are designed for the highest requirements in a wide range of industries, especially for compressors, pumps, conveyors and many other machines.
Robust design and excellent damping properties guarantee users maximum operational reliability, especially in applications with significant shock, alternate or vibration loads.
- Compensates for angular, parallel and axial shaft misalignments of the connected machines
- Elastic elements of two different Shore hardness are available
- Elastic elements operate in temperature ranges of −30 °C to +100 °C
- Replacement of elastic elements without axial movement of the coupled machines (principle of the multi-part design)
- Max. finished bore: 280 mm
- Nominal torque of coupling TKn = 41,000 Nm / TKmax = 97,500 Nm
- Operating speed to nmax = 5000 1/min
