The RBD drives are designed for use with industrial engines in stationary applications such as generators, pumps and compressor sets. Mobile applications include fork lift trucks and earth moving equipment.
RBD drives have many advantages:
ease of assembly, weight and size, small axial profile and competitive price. Drives are also supplied with standard SAE flanges for ease of installation.
Now they are also available in SRBD version; it means RBDs complete with SAE or DIN 5480 finished hubs and selected SAE flanges in order to facilitate and speedy the Customer selection at competitive price.
Atex certification is available too.
Couplings can be provided:
- with or without hub
- with spline or keyway
- with conical locking coupling
- with housing for hydrostatic drives
The drive principle makes use of internal and external teeth; the only difference being that the external teeth are blocks of special rubber molded compound.
The external ring, in aluminum, has a profile corresponding to the rubber molded compound and can be directly mounted on the output flange of the prime mover.
By this method it is also possible to absorb small angular and radial misalignments.
