The highly flexible tyre coupling, is also placed in cement installations. In this case, the coupling ‘s main function consists on transmitting power from the motor side so as to move the wheels through the railway. As an example, the application can be seen in the following picture.
Uneflex flexible rubber coupling coupling in machines inside cement installations
Taking into account that the ground is not completely flat, and that there can be stones, sand and other type of materials, it is recommended to use a very flexible coupling in order to absorb the vibrations and shocks produced by these elements. In this case, the Uneflex coupling has an outstanding performance, due to its capacity to face and compensate angular, axial and lateral misalignments while the machine is moving through the railway.
Elastic coupling applied in pulley break and disc brake for cranes in cement installations
Cranes are frequently used in this field. Therefore, the Uneflex elastic coupling for pulley brake/drum or disc brake is common in these types of applications. The rubber tyre coupling has a successful performance due to the flexible rubber located between both flanges, as it enables to absorb shocks easily correcting the misalignments. In addition, the tyre can be replaced easily avoiding maintenance costs due to its design.
Elastic tyre coupling for disc brake with safety mortgages
The Uneflex highly elastic coupling can be also manufactured with security mortgages, which are used as a safety element to prevent from possible accidents in case the tyre is broken due to a wrong manoeuvring, avoiding the shipment to fell down. This solution, is recommendable for cranes, elevators, hoists, etc.
