The HELI-CAL® Flexure used as a coupling will transmit
torque while compensating for lateral, axial, and angular misalignment movements.
This technology enables customer specified end attachments such as tangs,
clamps, flanges or threaded ends, to be integrated into a single
multifunctional component. Helical offers an extensive line of standard
flexible couplings and has designed and manufactured over 20,000 custom
couplings to maximize value and performance for 1000’s of customers.
The Flexure’s ability to accommodate various performance characteristics and Helical’s ability to integrate attachments directly enhances your freedom to design. Not only does the Flexure integrate multiple functions and parts into a single compact unit— no moving parts, no maintenance and no backlash—it can incorporate complex attachments. High quality performance is achieved with magnetic or non-magnetic corrosion-resistant stainless steel, as well as aluminum alloys.
Helical Product’s team of Application Engineers are ready to assist in the design of a coupling to your specific requirements.
A New Angle on U-Joints
The HELI-CAL® “Flexure” is an advanced and unique u-joint solution that generally exceeds the capabilities of common u-joint designs. A HELI-CAL® u-joint is really a flexure capable of over 5°of angular misalignment. It may accommodate up to 90° of angular misalignment in certain circumstances. This type of u-joint will also compensate for axial and parallel misalignment.
Generate Only Enhancement Program
As the old adage tells us, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. While this bit of wisdom applies to a wide variety of situations, it rings particularly true for components in an engineered system. Each part has a role to play and an essential burden to bear. From medical machinery components to aerospace applications, one common weakness can create critical failure: EXCESSIVE RIGIDITY. A universal problem calls for a universal solution; one that provides essential flexibility for all of your precisely designed components. This solution is our proprietary Heli-Cal® Flexure technology, implemented through our unique Generate Only product enhancement program. Our Flexure helps prevent premature component wear, likelihood of damage, motor seizure, bearing failure, elimination of vibration failures, compensation for coefficient linear expansion, and many other benefits.
