 Are you sick and tired of time-consuming and tedious coupling maintenance?  Lubrication, repairs…it all takes time. Time you don’t have. Avoiding downtime is the name of the game in production performance. So say goodbye to those time-consuming maintenance tasks and say hello to a new, easy to install, low maintenance coupling.

Introducing a low maintenance coupling

Martin has introduced the Go-Flex coupling into its portfolio of couplings, offering a radially removable insert that provides quick, easy installation and replacement without moving or realigning equipment.  With the radially removable insert, you will save time and money in maintenance costs when insert replacement is required.  

There is no need to even move and or realign the driver/driven equipment for insert replacement. Simply slide the cover off the insert, replace the worn insert and slide the cover over the insert re-engaging the locking mechanism. Three simple steps – that’s it!
