ROTEX GS Backlash-free shaft coupling
ROTEX® GS from HAW is a 3-part, axial plug-in coupling that achieves backlash-free performance under high tensile pre-stress.
It is convincing even with critical applications by its backlash-free power transmission, its stiffness which is each adapted to the application and its optimum damping of vibrations. This principle of installation offers significant assembly possibilities which optimise the assembly times in production.
The straight tooth profile of the spider mounted under pre-stress results in a smaller surface pressure and consequently higher stiffness of the coupling system. The flexible teeth compensate for misalignment but are supported radially in the inside diameter by a central web.
This avoids too high internal or external deformation by high acceleration or high speeds. This is vital for a smooth operation and long service life of the coupling.
The elastic spiders of the GS line are available in three different kinds of Shore hardness, identified by colour, the material being soft to hard. Due to these four spiders with different kinds of Shore hardness it is easily possible to adjust the ROTEX® GS regarding the torsional stiffness and the vibration behaviour to the individual conditions of an application.
Explosion protection use
ROTEX® GS couplings are suitable for power transmission in drives in hazardous areas.
