Railway Coupling GKG Cardan Joint Coupling

Model: GKG

FLENDER GKG® cardan couplings are elastic, double-jointed output couplings used to compensate for primary suspension misalignments in the bogie with full torque transmission between the gear unit and the powered wheel set shaft. They permit very large shaft displacements and allow major misalignments between the axle and the gear unit while generating only very slight reaction forces.
