The CENTAFLEX-AM series is a highly flexible coupling for the connection of gear and propeller shaft for the reduction of vibration and noise emanating from the boat hull.
It enables the backlash-free transmission of torque and propeller thrust using a highly flexible rubber element with a thrust bearing and is specially designed to reduce vibration and noise. The coupling dampens torsional vibrations and shocks, interrupts structure-borne noise and compensates for moderate axial, radial and angular misalignment. The CF-AM additionally offers a high degree of electrical insulation and is available in a wide range of standard sizes covering engine power up to several hundred KWs.
It can be easily mounted with by means of a clamping hub and comes complete with fail-safe device and is ready to install.
