Title: Coupling combination of a compensating coupling and a torsionally elastic coupling

Abstract: A coupling combination (1) consists of a compensating coupling (2) and a torsionally elastic coupling (3), where the compensating coupling (2) comprises a coupling member (4) with a middle tube portion (5) and two end-face diaphragm portions (6, 7) forming connecting rings (62, 72), and the torsionally elastic coupling (3) has an inner portion (10) and an outer portion (11) and between outer portion (11) and inner portion (10) has spring elements (12) for torque transmission. To achieve a rather short overall length, the tube portion (5) of the coupling member (4) is divided along an axially normal parting plane (T) in two tube sections (51, 52) to be screwed together via outwardly protruding flange edges (8, 9), at least one of the diaphragm portions (6, 7) is attached at the associated tube section (51, 52) in the outer peripheral region (61, 71) and forms the connecting ring (62, 72) in its inner peripheral region, and the torsionally elastic coupling (3) is provided in the vicinity of this tube section (51, 52) inside the coupling member (4), where the connecting ring (62, 72) of the diaphragm portion (6, 7) is each screwed to the outer portion (11) of the torsionally elastic coupling (3), and the inner portion (10) coaxially extends through the connecting ring (62, 72) to the outside.
