Centa Transmissions Ltd specialise in the design and manufacture of flexible couplings for mechanical power transmissions. As well as offering a range of standard CENTAFLEX couplings, we solve your unique drive problems by providing bespoke engineered solutions that integrate couplings, gearboxes, industrial brakes and other specialist drive products. Working with you from concept through to completion, Centa ensures your entire driveline system is sound, reliable and problem-free.
There are currently around 10 million Centa couplings in service worldwide, with a further half million added every year. Our products operate in some of the most demanding industrial conditions, which makes quality and reliability all the more important. All standard CENTAFLEX and bespoke couplings for power transmissions are manufactured under an ISO9001:2008 accredited quality management system and are designed to meet international classification standards.
Industries with which we work most closely include automation, construction, renewable energy, mining, military vehicles and equipment, processing, telecommunication, transport and utilities. We also offer marine drives for boats and ships of all types and sizes.
Some of our transmission solutions are detailed in the sections below. However, only by visiting Centa Transmissions online can you discover our complete range of couplings. There you will also be able to download our coupling brochures.

Introducing our brand new range of electromagnetic PTO clutches, designed for all types of marine drive and suitable for a range of applications. These systems can be configured to suit any driven plant – their modular design allows them to be used to control propulsion drives and remote mounted applications. They are available in free-standing or engine-mounted versions, both of which are easy to install and operate.
Electromagnetic PTO clutches from Centa integrate into systems much more easily than normal clutches. Find out more by visiting Centa Transmissions online.
The CENTAFLEX range of flexible couplings includes more than 20 standard models plus many more special versions. They are designed to handle virtually any flexible coupling application over a torque range of 10 Nm - 1,000,000 Nm.
CENTAFLEX couplings incorporate flexible elements with varying degrees of torsional stiffness – these may have linear or progressive characteristics. This, together with misalignment capacity, allows most deflection and torsional stress conditions to be accommodated. The unique design of the CENTAFLEX coupling, which uses machined hubs and flanges, allows special requirements to be catered for without difficulty.
Units are available for standard or customer-specified diesel engine flywheel or power take-off mountings, electric or hydraulic motors and other shaft-to-shaft connections.
All models are approved by most classification societies. For more information, please visit Centa Transmissions online.
Centa provides flexible coupling solutions for all types of machinery and mechanical handling equipment with torque requirements ranging from 10 Nm to 1,000,000 Nm. Our designs offer a reliable, quiet and vibration-free connection in a wide range of industrial applications. Some of our standard designs include (but are not limited to):

Centa can offer several coupling options for small boats. These are designed to eliminate all shaft transmitted noise and vibration in marine engines, whilst also reducing torsional stress and shockloads created by shaft misalignment and engine movement.

Centa offers a range of flexible marine couplings designed to overcome all transmission noise and vibration problems on large ships, boats and ocean-going vessels. They include:
Centa specialise in the supply of engineered precision positioning and power transmission drive solutions for industrial, precision automation and processing drive applications. We take into account all application requirements – including torque, inertia, speed, ratio, duty times, shock and peak loading conditions, dimensional limitations and backlash constraints – in order to determine the most suitable drive solution for the task in hand.
We have a number of fully integrated drive packages based on standard Centa gear modules together with motors (hydraulic, pneumatic or electric), shaft couplings and ancillary items such as clutches, brakes, torque limiters, interlock and sensing switches. These are supplied as complete drive assemblies which are fully tested and ready for installation.
Types of gears available for drive packages are listed below.
In situations where a standard unit is unable perform the required function, Centa will modify or re-engineer one of its products to meet the specific demands of your application. We have many years experience developing custom gear units and can offer solutions to meet most requirements.

Centa Transmissions is currently working with various scientific, marine, manufacturing and university partners across the UK and throughout Europe to produce transmission systems that help generate electricity from renewable energy sources. This includes gears, gearboxes, electromagnetic clutches and specially designed Centa Freewheels used in wave technology, as well as various gears, shafts and brakes used in wind turbines.
We have also worked with various suppliers to devise independent hybrid drives that allow buses to switch from diesel engines to electric, non-polluting motors when entering a city centre environment.
Our engineered solutions are what makes Centa one of the world’s leading transmission specialists. Over the years, our designers have worked on all kinds of projects and provided innovative solutions to many drive problems. Centa have experience in almost all areas of power transmission, and so can offer bespoke solutions to meet all requirements. In the past we have manufactured custom drives for the transport sector, the construction industry, for renewable energy firms and even for defence applications – these are all markets that require reliable, high performance drive solutions.
