Folk Disc Couplings Feature Fast Assembly, High Reliability

"Fit-em and forget-em" disc couplings, combining unitized discpacks for fast assembly with the rugged reliability offered from allsteel components, are now available from The Falk Corporation.

The heart of a disc coupling is a series of stainless steel plates held together in a laminated pack with high-strength alloy steel bushings and washers. These components form a unitized discpack for faster assembly and the elimination of loose parts. Flexibility is achieved when the laminated discpack bends between the driving and driven bolts.

Falk disc couplings feature no wearing parts to replace and require no lubrication, making them virtually maintenance free. Since there is no grease or oil to deal with, the couplings are not sensitive to hot or cold environments, and there is no danger of fluid leakage or contamination.

All component parts of Falk disc couplings are phosphate coated to resist corrosion, further extending the life of the unit.

The Falk Corporation, Milwaukee- based subsidiary of Sundstrand Corporation, is a major manufacturer of industrial power transmission machinery, including standard and custom gear drives, flexible shaft couplings, backstops, fluid power drives, and fluid couplings.
