Noted for its high performance and low wear rate, Kamatics' self-lubricating liner system, KAron, has become an ideal replacement for PTFE fabric-lined bearings. KAron's performance has established superior results in providing longer life and lower maintenance costs, even when operating in areas of high moisture, fluid/debris contamination, and elevated temperatures.  KAron, KAflex and Tufflex are registered trademarks of KamaticsRWG.


With more than three decades of experience in the design and manufacture of flexible driveline couplings and engineered systems, Kamatics offers solutions to the most challenging power transmission applications. Our proprietary KAflex and Tufflex coupling systems are frequently selected for critical rotating applications that demand a level of performance and safety that cannot be achieved with conventional greased coupling systems or standard flex-element couplings. Extreme torque, excessive angular misalignment, and high operating speeds are just a few of the reasons that customers turn to Kamatics Flexible Drive Systems.
