Amerigear®.., the first, the finest... flexible coupling with Fully-Crowned Gear Teeth. In contrast with ordinary gear tooth forms, the Amerigear Fully-Crowned Tooth represents the ultimate achievement in the art of gear tooth design, wherein all three working portions of the tooth are crowned. As a result, the teeth act much like a rocking chair, capable of sliding freely in the axial direction without digging or gouging the internal mating teeth. Because of this design advantage, Amerigear Flexible Couplings with Fully-Crowned Gear Teeth offer operational benefits of maximum load-carrying capacity with minimum size, maximum reliability and long life.
The Ameridisc® disc coupling was developed using advanced Finite Element Analysis with strain-gage verification in the Ameridrives Test Facility. The result was a coupling with an optimized disc profile that is power dense with a large bore capacity and low reaction loads. A proprietary disc coating is used to help prevent fretting and corrosion further improving coupling performance.
By using the latest design and manufacturing technology, Ameridrives Couplings is able to offer increased diaphragm coupling performance without compromising this outstanding reliability.
Advanced analysis and manufacturing processes have produced increased ratings without reducing safety factors. The use of the latest finite element analysis methods verified by strain gage and dynamic testing has allowed for a more precise calculation of the Ameriflex diaphragm stresses.
Model J Series U-joints use only high-wing bearing cap design. Developed for operation misalignment at high angles up to 15º. Bearing and seal design resists lubrication loss and contamination. Ideal for use in severe atmospheric conditions.
