Premium quality SGF power transmission products join the Burson Auto Parts range.
Burson Auto Parts, Australia’s preferred supplier of parts, tools and equipment to the Australian automotive trade, brings German engineering precision and total quality to its power transmission product range with SGF.
Burson Auto Parts offers a complete range of German manufactured SGF original flex couplings for European, Australian, American and Asian vehicle makes and models.
SGF is a specialist in automotive power transmission products, manufactured from several state-of-the-art engineering and manufacturing facilities located in Germany and around the world.
Australia’s Burson Auto Parts constantly seeks to provide its valued trade customers with premium quality automotive components. SGF’s decades of experience and unmatched quality make this range a clear stand out when it comes to flexible couplings.
A flexible coupling is used to transmit rotational torque whilst compensating for axial, radial and angular misalignment in the drivetrain. In a road car, they are typically located between the transmission output shaft and the driveshaft. They can also be located between the driveshaft and the differential on some makes and models.
SGF flex couplings from Burson Auto Parts are engineered to handle the operating and torque peaks of the engine in conjunction with cancelling the various vibration and harmonic frequencies generated by the drivetrain. Each coupling is designed and tuned to perform this task based on the vehicle model and powertrain configuration, so it is vitally important to be aware that a coupling can differ for each make and model of a vehicle.
SGF’s product advantage is based on its expertise in this field, along with its exclusive Tenpu® fibre technology. This technology combines unique cord inlays and rubber material that operate under tension load. Unlike common rubber couplings that work with shear load or pressure load on the rubber, the tension load principle ensures that the cord inlays transmit most of the load, providing a better tolerance to shock loads and a higher power density ratio. This results in the ability to transmit higher torque with a smaller coupling.
By selecting premium quality SGF power transmission products from Burson Auto Parts, automotive experts are fitting the same products that have been selected as Original Equipment for many RWD and AWD vehicles around the world. Ford, General Motors, Chrysler, BMW, Mercedes Benz and Hyundai all use SGF flex drive couplings.
Australian workshops and mechanics need to beware of the dangers when using lower quality flexible couplings, as they do not offer the same NVH cancelling properties as the original. This results in vibration and noise issues along with the fact that in many cases, lower quality couplings cannot handle the vehicle torque and RPM. This has the potential to cause serious injury and expensive damage to other powertrain components.
