Frictional shaft-hub-connections are standard machine elements used to connect shafts and hubs. They are capable of transmitting Torque, axial forces, radial forces and bending moments.

Shrink Discs and Cone Clamping Elements:

Among the frictional shaft-hub-connections Shrink Discs and Cone Clamping Elements take an important position. By tightening clamping screws conical surfaces are pulled together generating radial forces


  • Backlash free connections
  • Easy alignment of hub to shaft
  • No notch effect in contrast to keyway connections
  • Compact solutions due to high power density
  • Ideal for reversing operation
  • Reduced costs due to simple shaft and hub geometry
  • Simultaneous transmission of torque and axial force
  • Connections can be released even after long operation time
