Flexible shaft core with metal couplings
At both ends of the flexible shaft core metal couplings are fixed through pressing. For special applications also soldering is used. The shaft couplings can be shaped more or less at will. It is also possible to have a pressed square at one and a coupling at the other end.
For flexible shafts with very high load it is possible to have the ends of the shaft core stabilized by soldering before pressing the couplings.
Material of the shaft couplings
- Stainless steel
