VETUS offers a variety of solutions for connecting the propeller shaft to the engine. The rubber element of the flexible coupling ensures low-noise, vibration-free transmission, without backlash between the engine and the propeller shaft. For smaller stern gear installations up to 30mm, depending on the amount of space available in the engine room, you can either choose the Bullflex, Combiflex, Uniflex type 13 or KO5. These couplings all only permit a misalignment of 2° maximum. Only the KO5 is suitable for V-drives. For stern gear installations up to 70mm, you can choose between the Bullflex and Uniflex type 16 couplings.
Last but not least, VETUS offers the VDR. This double-acting, constant velocity joint comes with a thrust bearing. The VDR is used when considerable misalignment angles need to be overcome.
