Rotex GS couplings are designed to transmit torque between drive and driven components with zero‑backlash via curved jaw hubs and elastomeric elements, commonly known as spiders. The combination of these components provides dampening and accommodation of misalignment. This product is available in a variety of metals, elastomers and mounting configurations to meet your specific needs. Rotex GS couplings suitable for horizontal or vertical applications are constructed from a variety of materials and geometries, providing a torsionally flexible zero‑backlash platform optimizing the balance between inertia, coupling performance and application requirements. The machined concaved jaws provide a pocket to preload the spider legs, allowing the spiders to articulate freely while accommodating misalignment, minimizing restoring forces, dampen shock and vibration, while providing failsafe zero‑backlash torque transmission. The symmetrical relationship of the hubs allows for a variety of accessories to accommodate different shaft distances.
