Auniversal joint, (universal coupling,U-joint,Cardanjoint,Hardy-Spicerjoint, orHooke’s joint) is ajointorcouplingin a rigid rod that allows the rod to ‘bend’ in any direction, and is commonly used in shafts that transmitrotary motion. It consists of a pair ofhingeslocated close together, oriented at 90° to each other, connected by a cross shaft. The universal joint is not aconstant velocity joint.
WSD universal coupling is suitable for retating system which the two axis angle <45,nominal torque 11.2~1120N*m.
Features of WSD universal coupling:
1.Available in your choice of round, hex, splined, or keyway bore
2.Lubrication is required for optimal wear–boots and lubricant extenduniversal joint life
3.Max angular mislegnment:45o
