Flexible Discs

For over 75 years, SGF has been considered the original manufacturer of the flexible disc.

The Original -
Made in Germany

No one prefers to work under pressure – and that goes for materials, too. It is much better to pull together. That’s the twist of our technology, which is built on the SGF tensile force principle.

SGF tractive force principle
With the unique SGF tensile force principle, we create industrial marvels that transmit power almost exclusively via the vulcanized fiber packages as tensile force. This meticulous and precise technology is the secret of our extraordinary resilience and reliability.

Tenpu® fiber technology
But that is not all. Our specially developed fiber packages with Tenpu® fiber technology are true multi-talents: They dampen torque peaks and absorb start-up shocks, while the elastomer performs a protective function for the yarn packages. But this inconspicuous component does even more: it isolates noise and interrupts structure-borne sound, ensuring extremely quiet and efficient performance.

Here at SGF, we’re about more than just products – we’re about creating reliable, high-performance connections that help you achieve your goals. So if you’re looking for the diamond of industrial couplings, you’ve come to the right place.

Years Experience
As an elastic power transmission element with joint function, our flexible discs combine the task of a high-frequency structure-borne noise decoupling element with that of a broadband damping element, even with demanding temperature, torque and speed spectra.

Flexible Disc

Thanks to SGF Tenpu® fiber technology, the drive torque is transmitted according to the principle of tensile force transmission instead of compressive load, which increases durability and strength. This allows for a more compact design with less mass and size, while maintaining the elastic decoupling and damping properties of the rubber.
  • Vibration and noise reducing
  • Reliable torque transmission
  • Compensation of misalignments
  • “Best-in-Class” solution

This patented product uses a pressure-loaded system of rubber shock absorbers to provide three times the insulation performance of conventional shear-loaded tube-in-tube designs.
  • Low space requirement
  • High steering comfort
  • High durability
  • “Best-in-Class” solution

Everything from one hand

SGF is a development partner for drive technology. Together with our customers, we develop products that meet individual requirements. Thanks to over 75 years of experience and our state-of-the-art equipment, we are able to develop solutions for the most demanding tasks. Ready-to-assemble systems made of elastic components with flanges or adapters can be developed, tested and produced due to our great competence.

In-house materials laboratory

When developing products, we use state-of-the-art materials laboratory to ensure best possible solution for your application. In doing so, we develop and process various elastomer compounds (NBR, SBR, EPDM, silicone / VMQ) according to requirements.

Virtual product development

Virtual product development includes multi-body simulation (MBS), finite element method (FEM)  and FKM evaluation (strength verification). Rapid prototyping is used to verify calculation and measurement.

In-house Testing

Validation of design and products done in-house according with customer specifications.
