After an extensive validation process jointly conducted by VULKAN and NEMOS, the drive shaft made of fiber composite and elastomer material was certified by DNV to meet the technical and safety regulations. "We are pleased that in cooperation with VULKAN we have succeeded in designing this innovative product so that it can soon be used in marine applications as well as industrial applications.
The experienced, global group VULKAN and the innovative technology company NEMOS have complemented each other excellently on the way to this point," says Jan Peckolt, Managing Director of NEMOS. "The certificate is an important milestone for us towards market launch," said Dr. Gunnar Gödecke, Global Director Innovation of VULKAN.
The N-Flex® drive shaft offers torsional elasticity as well as displacement capability in a unique way in one component. Its ability to compensate for radial, axial and angular displacements, as well as reduce structure-borne noise, provides many advantages in driveline layout and design.
The patented N-Flex® combines the functions of flexible couplings and shafts, allowing the required installation space and mass of the driveline to be significantly reduced.
