The Hamburg-based spare parts manufacturer MEYLE AG is presenting new references for the flex disc in MEYLE-HD quality, resulting from collaboration with BOGE Elastmetall GmbH, a leading manufacturer of automotive vibration technology. Through the collaboration of the two manufacturers, the flex disc is now available in the aftermarket as a ready-to-install MEYLE smart repair kit comprising a high-quality flex disc and the corresponding installation materials. Optimised materials, including a special rubber blend and exceptional thread stability inside the flex disc, ensure better performance and an above-average service life.
A defective flex disc can pose a high safety risk and, in extreme cases, cause the flex disc to break off – with far-reaching consequences for the vehicle and driver. The collaboration between MEYLE and BOGE has resulted in a flex disc which, due to its unique technical features and sophisticated function characteristics, is especially durable and reliable. A reduction in peak torques as well as damping and insulation of wave acoustics during load change reactions make the flex disc exceptionally efficient.
The materials of the spare part also boast special characteristics: the innovative and optimised winding technology as well as enhanced push and pull characteristics reduce inner friction, which in turn ensures an exceptionally long service life for the flex disc. Compared with conventional materials, optimised thread stability offers a higher breaking load. The full-surface, comprehensive thread coating also makes the flex disc stronger. The optimised rubber blend used in the MEYLE-HD flex discs can withstand temperatures of up to 130 °C.
The MEYLE-HD flex disc represents another repair solution for workshops and customers, enabling affordable replacement of defective cardan shaft components. Targeted replacement of defective components can save workshops and drivers lots of time and money.
MEYLE now offers 22 references for the MEYLE-HD flex disc and thus covers more than 19 million vehicles worldwide – expansion of the portfolio with additional references is in the pipeline. As they do with all MEYLE-HD products, workshops benefit here from the 4-year guarantee.
