Ameridisc® High Performance Disc Couplings | Ameridrives

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.
