Universal Joint Couplings
The universal joint is considered to be one of the oldest of all flexible couplings. It is commonly known for its use on automobiles & trucks.
A universal joint in its simplest form consists of two shaft yolks at right angles to each other & a four point cross which connects the two yolks.
Americardan Universal Joint Couplings are designed for applications which operate continuously & with high torque loads. There are several unique features that make the Americardan Universal Joint Coupling ideal for a variety of applications. They have the ability to operate at high misalignment angles of upto 15°, with negligible backlash or radial clearance & their bearing and seal design resists lubrication loss & contamination. This makes the Americardan Universal Joint Coupling ideal for applications where atmospheric conditions would put other couplings at a distinct disadvantage.
Americardan Universal Joint Couplings provide for a compact design, long life & minimum maintenance.
Typical applications include:
- continuous casters
- hot strip mills
- payoff reels
- vertical edgers
- wire mills
