LET AN EXPERT PROVIDE YOU WITH
BOTH  AN ANALYSIS
AND A RECOMMENDATION

Unfortunately, no mechanical product can last forever and couplings
are no exception. While Kop-Flex® products are designed and built
to last, many applications are so severe that rapid wear and/or coupling
damage may occur.

 

Kop-Flex® has the largest and most experienced engineering staff in
the industry, with an arsenal of modern analysis tools at our disposal
including FEA, an in-house R&D center, and a staff focused solely on
couplings. Let our technical experts go beyond mere failure analysis
by providing our recommendations on how to prevent future coupling
problems.
