Shifting gear coupling

Complete flexibility: The gear coupling from RENK has always been available in a connectable design.
The geared components can be engaged or disengaged at a standstill as well as during the synchronous operation of connected units. If necessary, operators can thus temporarily disconnect certain machines of a drive train and connect auxiliary or alternative drives, if required.

Tailor-made couplings from RENK are available in both horizontal and vertical designs. Shifting gear couplings are usually structured in a double cardanic design. This structure allows for the compensation of radial, axial and angular misalignments of machine shafts.

Consistency leads to success: The running and switching behavior of couplings always remains the same. The system automatically compensates for any change in coupling alignment caused by a sagging foundation, for example. Standard version with grease lubrication, special version with oil injection lubrication possible.

The individual switchgear is either pneumatic or hydraulic while the control system of the clutch coupling is integrated into the entire system’s existing control unit. It takes over and controls the optimal engagement and disengagement of the coupling always as part of a customer specific solution in accordance with the system’s individual requirements.

Gear couplings

Gear joint coupling

In the case of gear joint couplings, the joint connection is torsionally rigid but flexible on all sides, which offers considerable advantages over a rigid coupling.

Gear couplings

Gear spindle coupling

Gear spindle couplings are mainly used where large torques have to be transmitted with very small outside diameters and, at the same time, high misalignment capability is required.
