The Carbotorq® is a lightweight maintenance-free elastomer coupling. It is designed to minimize reaction forces and bearing loads. Its innovative design provides torsional elasticity and misalignment capacities with the lowest possible weight. The torsional elastic component is bonded between fiber composite membranes, which provide elasticity and high internal damping properties.

The Geislinger Carbotorq® coupling is a torsionally flexible coupling, which combines advanced composite material and silicone elastomer. The lightweight Geislinger Carbotorq® coupling compensates radial, axial, angular misalignments and has torsional elastic properties. With its low reaction force, the Geislinger Carbotorq® significantly reduces the bearing loads, and thus, increases the system service life.

The Geislinger Carbotorq® coupling consist of two advanced composite membranes and an elastic silicon element. The integral design provides constant misalignment values under all circumstances. The coupling tunes the torsional vibration behavior of the drive line, whereas the torsional stiffness of the heat-resistant silicone elastomer element can be adjusted to the torsional vibration demands. The composite materials also provide high internal damping for high-frequency vibrations.

The Geislinger Carbotorq® coupling can be connected to all kinds of shafts, flanges and flywheels. With the plug‐in connection, it is also possible to install the Carbotorq® coupling in hardly accessible places. In applications where weight is a concern, Geislinger products can be combined to a shaftline. This lightweight shaftline combination often consists of a Carbotorq®, a Geislinger Gesilco® shaft, and other couplings in our Gesilco® product range. This provides a very light-weight drive train with extremely high misalignment capabilities.
