Universal Joints & Cardan Shafts

We supply universal joints for medium and heavy-duty industrial drives in various designs:

Maximum transmittable torque: 9.000kNm

Maximum Flange Diameter: 1.200 mm.

Advantages of Universal Joints

  • Compensation of high angles thus allowing the transmission of the torque between two shafts not in line.
  • In its version with a double extensible joint a universal joint will allow both radial and axial displacements.
  • High Torque transmission.
  • Minimum Maintenance.
  • Easy to install.

Our universal shafts have been divided in different models for light to medium and for heavy industrial applications. In both cases special types are available upon request. Yokes are from cast or forged  heat treated material. Crosses are from forged carburized steel, either one piece or with lose cup. Bearings are from carburized steel. Splined shafts are all nitrated or induction hardened.
