GUMMI is an and ISO & ABS Type Approved leading designer, marketer, distributor and manufacturer of power transmission components and safety deck floor matting systems for the marine and drilling industry worldwide. Gummi USA manufactures and distributes various styles of marine shaft couplings, pneumatic drum type clutches / brakes, and various types of rotary unions and friction materials. New to our product offering this year the the Lea-Der brand of Traction Safety Matting, which is a custom made and fit matting system which increases safety and traction on the deck floor and down in the engine room.
Gummi manufactures a wide variety of couplings designed specifically to protect the more critical elements in a series of power transmission components. The couplings are there to absorb shock and torsional vibration and to compensate for any minor shaft misalignments that may be present. All couplings that are either manufactured or sold by Gummi are interchangeable as complete assemblies with the major coupling brands.
The type FKT (VC) element was designed principally for high torque / high thermal capacity applications on heavy duty applications such as winches, gear boxes, and shaft brakes. Its features enhanced heat dissipation due to its highly ventilated construction. In addition, every single component of the type FKT element is replaceable meaning the clutch can be totally rebuilt. The type FKT elements are available in over 30 sizes, including single and dual configurations with Hi-Co (Cork) or standard coefficient linings.
The type FM (CM) element is designed primarily for marine applications for use on reverse reduction gears. The dynamically balanced FM element utilizes ventilated friction shoes for enhanced heat dissipation. This also allows for controlled slippage to enhance forward and reverse maneuverability of the vessel. Rim registration provides for dual and triple element assemblies and is available in 5 sizes, with corresponding mating drums.
