CENTA Power Transmission



Light-weight drive shaft made of carbon-fibre reinforced plastic. For energy-efficient power transmission while simultaneously permitting increased velocities of the driven machines.

Developed in cooperation with the Technical University of Darmstadt and leading classification societies. Strength and stability comparable to steel, but significant savings in weight. Combinable with a variety of flexible couplings and connecting elements for optimum adaption of the torsional situation. Extremely durable and noise damping. With low thermal expansion, fatigue-free and corrosion-proof.

Availabe in any length with up to 10 metres per section. Further handling, maintenance and cost benefits by the omission of additional components, such as bearings and foundations.
