ACORN announces coupling with Flender

Acorn Industrial Services Ltd is proud to announce its appointment by Flender as a stocking distributor to distribute its vast range of high-performance couplings, including the revolutionary N-EUPEX® pin coupling.

A subsidiary of Siemens, Flender proudly manufactures robust and durable couplings which customers can depend on. With couplings available to suit applications across every industry, Flender’s vast experience guarantees quality and reliability, even in the harshest environments.

Following its commitment to minimise customer downtime and reduce lead times, ACORN has invested in large stocks of Flender N-EUPEX pin couplings. Short lead times are also available on the full range of Flender couplings, thanks to ACORN’s close working relationship with the manufacturer.

“Flender’s impressive range of high-performance couplings, including the N-EUPEX line, was one of the key attractions for our partnership. This extensive range of couplings will provide our customers with new and innovative coupling solutions for every application” commented Tom Fowler, Business Development Manager of ACORN’s Couplings and Drives division.

Tom continued: “With over 44 years of experience, ACORN’s dedicated Couplings and Drives division is able to simplify coupling specification and selection for our customers. Our technical expertise, coupled with extensive industry and product knowledge allows us to offer a fast and accurate turnaround on coupling specification.”

Flender’s innovative approach to manufacturing has led to the design of the N-EUPEX pin coupling, which features a fail-safe design for maximum operational reliability. The metal pins and flexible elements of this coupling have been carefully designed to prevent wear when fitted correctly, helping to keep downtime to a minimum.

At Flender we are committed to supporting the growing challenges of plant availability. We are therefore delighted with this commitment which supports the growth strategy for our coupling’s portfolio. Through Acorn’s distribution network, our leading N-Eupex range now has improved availability in the UK.  Same day delivery capability reduces the risk of plant downtime for many industries” Commented Matt Jackson, one of Flender’s Business Development Managers.
