power transmission in motion

Universal Joints

Universal joints, also known as cardan joints are meant to connect two shafts and allow the torque transmission through a variable angle. The combination of universal joints and a shaft is called a drive shaft or cardan shaft and is another important machine component for power transmission.




Couplings are used either for rigid or elastic and movable connection of two shafts in order to enable a rotating power transmission. Depending on the design they allow the compensation of a certain misalignment between the shafts and can provide a shock absorbing effect to protect other machine components from damage.

Shaft Collars



Shaft collars are simple but very important and widely used machine components which are mainly used for the alignment of other components on the shaft or as a mechanical stop. They are available in various designs and different materials in order to adapt as well as possible to the particular application.
