Drum Couplings

As a connection between rope drum and gearbox, our Drum-Couplings can transmit high torques with small dimensions and weights.

Fields of application

  • Hoists
  • Winches
  • Conveyor Belts


  • Suitable for radial forces and torque transmissions.
  • Increased operational safety by advanced internal design.
  • A pointer fixed to the outer cover, and a corresponding milled mark on the coupling hub (new execution, utility model protection) allow external control on the wear and the axial position of the coupling housing in relation to the coupling hub. It is not necessary to dismantle the coupling for this purpose.
  • As an option for the series TTXs, an automatic wear control (Malmedie patent) is available. With this option, a gearbox-mounted proximity switch gives a signal (e.g. to the crane PLC) at 80% wear. The automatic wear control can be also retrofitted on the TTXs series.
