SIT TRASCO ES Zero-Backlash Couplings
SIT TRASCO ES are torsionally flexible, puncture-proof shaft couplings with two metal hubs with front claws and a polyurethane element. They transmit torque through a high-precision pressure-stressed elastic star-shaped buffer which absorbs shock and torsional vibration. This element is oil, chemicals and heat resistant and electrically conductive. The elastic elements are available in different colors according to their hardness. The hubs are manufactured with minimal backlash so that the flexible elements are very tightly inserted into the front teeth to make a so-called zero-backlash coupling. Hubs are made of steel or aluminium alloy as unbored, with finished H7 bore, with a clamping joint and tightening screw or with an integrated clamping tapered element with a finished bore.
TRASCO ES couplings can be used for both directions of rotation and each mounting position.
Couplings Fields of Use
SIT TRASCO ES zero-backlash elastic couplings are intended for the highest demands in a wide range of industries where the highest precision and minimum backlash are required.
They are used, for example, in machine tools, testing machines, fine mechanics, dynamometers and many other applications, particularly in the food, chemical, paper, metalworking and automotive industries.
- Torque transmission without backlash
- Vibration damping from the motor shaft (up to 80%)
- Easy and quick installation
- Couplings are resistant to oil, chemicals and high temperature
- Small size, low moment of inertia
