For Immediate Release

Lovejoy Inc. achieves ATEX Certification for the Disc Coupling Product Family


Downers Grove, IL, April 23, 2015—Lovejoy Inc., a global leader in couplings, power transmission, hydraulic components, and rubber suspension technology, today announced that its Disc Coupling Product Line, which includes SU, SX, SXC, SXCS, SXCST, DI, DIR, DILR, DIRA and DIRLA types, has achieved ATEX certification.

Lovejoy Inc. takes great pride in being able to offer a wide variety of superior disc coupling products in models designed to meet the application needs of today’s worldwide power transmission market.

Using advanced design techniques, implementation of Finite Element Analysis, and extensive testing of materials, Lovejoy has developed an innovative disc pack profile design revolutionary to traditional disc pack designs found in the market. This disc pack can accommodate 1/2° to 1-1/2° of angular misalignment, and is used in all Lovejoy disc coupling products.

Lovejoy disc packs are manufactured using high-grade stainless steel (AISI-301), ensuring high strength, high endurance to fatigue, and resistance to most environmental conditions.

Lovejoy disc couplings utilize unitized disc packs with 4, 6 or 8 bolt designs. While the 8 bolt design can transmit greater torque than the 6 or 4 bolt design, it is not able to accommodate as much angular misalignment.
