OPTIMAL: Flexible couplings - Made in Germany

OPTIMAL: Flexible couplings - Made in Germany

Name and function:
Flexible couplings are also known as Hardy discs, named after their inventor, John Leslie Hardy.

They are used in vehicles with rear wheel or all-wheel drive and are connected to the longitudinal shaft via the integrated precision steel sleeves.

The special construction of the OPTIMAL flexible couplings in the form of innovatively arranged cord packs, a special rubber compound and high-quality steel sleeves enables the compensation of not only misalignments and axial play but also of juddering movements when starting the shaft or changing speed. This allows irritating vibrations and “juddering” to be avoided while driving.

Flexible couplings from OPTIMAL:
For popular vehicle applications from BMW and Mercedes, OPTIMAL now offers flexible couplings “MADE IN GERMANY”.

- The F3 flexible couplings are manufactured in Germany on state-of-the-art machines and subject to the quality standards for original equipment as required by TS16949.
- An optimised, internal cord structure guarantees efficient torque transmission.
- The composite rubber body supports and protects the cord skeleton so that the entire system achieves excellent attenuation properties.
- Deviations of angle and length in the drive train can be reliably compensated for.
- The OPTIMAL flexible coupling effectively suppresses vibrations for excellent driving comfort and low levels of noise.
- Continuous quality control
- All references are available in digital search and catalogue systems (TecDoc, DVSE, etc.)
- Very wide market coverage
