Poly Flex flexible disc transmission couplings provide a damper between the gearbox and propeller shaft to isolate torsional vibration from the engine and gearbox. It also reduces shocks from forward and reverse gear changes. They are designed to cover a large percentage of gearboxes, such as Twin Disc, ZF, Dong-I, Borg Warner, Bukh, Newage, Paragon, Technodrive, Volvo, Yanmar and many more. All flexible disc transmission couplings are available with DNV-GL “Type Approval” upon request for vessels in survey. While Poly Flex flexible disc transmission couplings are designed for marine use, they are used in many industrial driveline applications too.
Since 1981 Poly Flex has been developing and manufacturing Australian made flexible disc transmission coupling range with over 300 models ranging from 10 horsepower to 2500 horsepower. All flexible disc transmission couplings are moulded from engineering heat cured polymer alloys of the highest standards and all metal components are plated in SA5 cobalt zinc, increasing the metal life that normal zinc plating would give by 600%. All flexible disc transmission couplings are machined on purpose-built flange jigs and have a maximum runout of 0.05mm. Spigots are also machined to tolerance within +/- 0.05mm.
With over 40 years of knowledge Poly Flex has comprised a coupling cross reference and a transmission cross reference for flexible disc couplings. This can be found and used to guide customers via the website regarding what flexible disc transmission coupling is suitable for their gearbox or alternative branded flexible coupling. Poly Flex offers coupling cross reference tables for the following:
- Globe Drive Saver to Poly Flex
- R & D to Poly Flex
- Iso Flex to Poly Flex
Poly Flex’s transmission cross reference and coupling cross reference table allow customers to narrow down what flexible disc transmission coupling is suitable for their gearbox and quickly get pricing and data sheets to confirm.
Poly Flex are experienced worldwide suppliers of flexible disc transmission couplings. With over 40 years of experience Poly Flex strive to equip customers with the right information about their vessel making the process simple. Poly Flex is constantly cross checking and updating all cross-reference tables to ensure customers can rely on the information they find.
