Imperial Electric offers flexible couplings and adapters with its heavy-duty line of AC & DC Elevator Duty Motors for geared traction machines. The couplings and adapters are also available for both flange or foot-mount machines manufactured by companies such as Armor, Dover, Gurney, Montgomery, Otis, Schindler-Haughton, Serge and Westinghouse. Other couplings are available upon request.

The three-part coupling consists of a drum-mount flange, polyurethane disc and a motor adapter plate for flange motors. When assembled and properly installed, the poly disc reduces vibration and noise carry-through to the car due to any misalignment. End thrusting of motor shafts and overloading of bearings are also reduced.

Flexible Couplings are also available in kit form for field modifications. The couplings with Taper-LockEfittings have flange bolt patterns that are identical to the rigid couplings they replace which allows for motor replacement within a few hours.
