In addition to the cardan shaft series coupling program VULKAN has developed the VULKAN ISS, the Integral Shaft Support. The ISS fitts in installations where the cardan shaft has a large angle of inclination. The ISS combines a bellhousing with bearings capable to take the lateral and axial reaction forces of the cardan shaft. The engine crankshaft loadings can therefore be reduced significantly. The integrated higly flexible coupling optimizes the torsional vibration characteristics of the system.


  • Protection of the crankshaft against axial or radial reaction forces
  • Customised solution for compensation of high angular displacement between the motor and the gearbox
  • It is flexible in use as an integrated elastic coupling with three models and a wide torque range
