Centaflex universal drive shafts are simple, versatile and torsionally highly elastic units that dampen noise, torsional oscillation and shock, and are available locally from Chain & Drives Australia .
Compensating for considerable axial, radial and angular misalignment, these drive shafts are custom made to suit the requirements of a specific application.
Connecting parts (hubs) can also be supplied in varying configurations to suit requirements.
With a centre part that can be removed radially without displacing the coupled machines, these shafts require no maintenance whatsoever,
Centaflex universal drive shafts are supplied in two different models.
Design G shafts are suitable for short and medium lengths, and for speeds up to approximately 1500rpm.
Design GZ shafts feature a centre assembly that is accurately located on the centering plate and maintenance free bearings. These models are suitable for long lengths and/or high speeds.
