Suitable for high speed!


The “Simple-Flex” series from JAKOB Antriebstechnik is a novel, innovative distance coupling that can be manufactured up to 6m in length and requires no additional intermediate storage. A sophisticated composite tube with a multi-layer, angle-specific fiber configuration allows a particularly simple design. As a result, the otherwise necessary clutch compensation elements, as well as the internal support on the two pipe ends, omitted.

With elaborate simulation calculations and test series, a composite pipe has been developed which has both flexural flexibility and high torsional rigidity. The very low weight and the associated low moments of inertia can guarantee the highest operating speeds and torques with excellent smoothness, without neglecting the compensation of shaft misalignments.

 “Simple-Flex” is available with either rotationally symmetrical cone clamping ring clamping or with assembly-friendly half-shell hub. The two available composite pipe sizes cover torques up to 1000Nm.

The “Simple-Flex” will be presented for the first time at SPS 2019 at the booth of JAKOB Antriebstechnik GmbH, Hall 3A – Stand 370.
