Schmidt clutch represents the current Coupling series "Omniflex" in front. The couplings are designed for maximum torque transmission. The range covers a nominal torque range from 3 to 6400 kNm. The coupling system in conjunction with special spherical bearings offers a high universal displacement compensation. Depending on the size, the precise couplings provide an angular displacement of max. 3 °, a radial displacement of max. ± 200 mm and an axial compensation of max. ± 50 mm.
The coupling principle with three discs and two handlebar levels requires a very short overall length. The couplings provide high torsional rigidity and enable precise work. The added robustness of the couplings predestines them for the toughest cycle operation and applications with the toughest impact torques. Industrial gear units, large gearboxes, press drives, stretch rollers, gearbox test stands, process technology as well as mixing and agitators are potential applications of the couplings.
