The CENTAFLEX-DS is a dual-stage coupling with progressive characteristic, designed for smooth drive operation and highly reliable load transmission.

It combines the good damping characteristics of a torsionally flexible roller coupling under partial load, with the robustness of a claw-type coupling under full load, with a compact and economic design for smooth operation at low idling speeds. This makes if perfect for applications with high degrees of idling and is effectively ventilated with high allowable power loss.

It is blind assembled for minimum mounting effort and is delivered with fail-safe device and flywheel connections acc. to SAE. The CF-DS is also available for non-standard flywheels.
