TECMEN couplings in the TMB series

Exploded view showing the structure of a TMB coupling

High-performance flexible coupling in modular system; 11 sizes with diameters from 300 mm to 900 mm; hub–claw ring and standard attachments can all be combined in each size

Plug-in coupling with modular design, flexible elements can be radially replaced simply by moving the retaining ring; power transmission through pressure on stressed elastomers

Physical and technical parameters

  • Torque (T) 6,000 Nm to 1 million Nm
  • Speed (n) 7,600 to 2,500 min–1
  • Stiffness (C/T) approx. 80 to 100
  • Permissible ambient temperature: Polyurethane –20°C to +80°C
  • Electrically insulating

Manufacturing and material

  • Coupling components machined on all sides for outstanding rotation and residual imbalance
  • Forged steel hub/cast flanges claw-type flanges SGI
  • Flexible polyurethane elements (PUR/Vulkollan®)
  • Custom designs on application at any time

TECMEN couplings in the TMB series are used for instance in power stations, cable cars, compressors and cement mills.

Download a brief profile of the TMB series, API 671 standards (TMB couplings are always API 671 compliant), and details of shaft dis­place­ment capacity (PDF). If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.

The standard questionnaire on design of torsionally flexible couplings you can fill in as form for combustion engine as drive unit or for non combustion drive units or download as pdf. As an additional recommendation we hint on a neat conversion program that’s worth its weight in gold! (Thanks to Josh Madison.)
