RCT - Reich Kupplungen


With the newly developed RCT couplings, REICH-KUPPLUNGEN offers an optimal drive solution for the connection of diesel engines to hydraulic pumps.

The most important characteristics and advantages of RCT-couplings:

  • Subcritical operation through high torsional stiffness
  • Vibration and torque shock damping through flexible rubber coating
  • High torque transmission capacity, fail-safe
  • Suited for ambient temperatures from -25°C to +100°C
  • Compact, robust, maintenance-free
  • Easy assembly thanks to the plug-in type design
  • Backlash-free shaft-hub connection
  • Compensation of axial, radial and angular offsets
  • Multiple spline options for the connection to the pump shaft
  • Bellhousing flanges for almost any mounting situation

Product details

reibo cad 250General technical description

The torsionally stiff design of the RCT coupling allows for shifting critical resonances to the range above the operating speed range and thus enables a subcritical operation of the drive without passing through detrimental torsional vibration amplitudes.

The new RCT coupling, like the decade-longproven REICH ARCUSAFLEX coupling, is designed as an axially pluggable flange coupling. Its external teeth, however, have a robust metallic inner body with a thin-walled rubber coating so that torque shocks are dampened effectively. In addition, small axial, radial and angular offsets which are common to flanged hydraulic drives can be compensated for. Numerous standardized tooth profiles ensure a backlash-free clamping connection between the RCT coupling and the pump shaft. The coupling flanges are matched to SAE flywheel dimensions.

As a supplementary service, REICH-KUPPLUNGEN also offers a multitude of bellhousing flanges through which the vast majority of internal combustion engines and hydraulic pumps can be connected. REICH-KUPPLUNGEN will be pleased to develop an optimal solution in line with the principle ‚D2C - Designed to Customer‘ for special types as well.

Bellhousing flanges for RCT couplings

reibo cad 250

As a supplementary product to its RCT couplings, REICH-KUPPLUNGEN also offers matching bellhousing flanges: The pump housing is connected to the flywheel housing of the engine through the bellhousing flange, and power transmission takes place from the engine flywheel via the RCT coupling to the pump shaft

The selection of both the bellhousing flange and the RCT coupling is subject to verification by REICH-KUPPLUNGEN with regard to the existing mounting situation of the pump drive.

D2C – Designed to Customer

D2C – Designed to CustomerThe principle of Designed to Customer describes the recipe for success of REICH-KUPPLUNGEN: Utilizing our product knowledge, our customers are supplied with couplings which are developed and tailor-made to their specific requirements. The designs are mainly based on modular components to provide effective and efficient customer solutions. The unique form of close cooperation with our partners includes consultation, design, calculation, manufacture and integration into existing environments. Adapting our manufacturing to customer-specific production and utilizing global logistics concepts provides better after sales service - worldwide. This customer-oriented concept applies to both standard products and production in small batch sizes.

The company policy of REICH-KUPPLUNGEN embraces, first and foremost, principles such as customer satisfaction, flexibility, quality, prompt delivery and adaptability to the requirements of our customers.

REICH-KUPPLUNGEN supplies not only a coupling, but a solution: Designed to Customer.
