Cardan shafts is a mechanical component for transmitting torque and rotation, usually used to connect other components of a drive train that cannot be connected directly because of distance or the need to allow for relative movement between them.
Cardan shafts are carriers of torque: they are subject to torsion and shear stress, equivalent to the difference between the input torque and the load. They must therefore be strong enough to bear the stress, whilst avoiding too much additional weight as that would in turn increase their inertia.
Cardan shafts frequently incorporate one or more universal joints or jaw couplings, and sometimes a spline joint or prismatic joint to allow for variations in the alignment and distance between the driving and driven components. Features of Cardan Shaft
Nominal torque range:
- Rotational dia: 75mm to 1600mm
- Length :250mm to 15meters
570nm to 50,000knm. Cross of any dimension are available against drawing. Selecting a cardan shaft for an application is the most important task. In which we specialize. The success of cardan shafts is based on:
- High quality products developed
- Customer feedback
- Regular innovations
- Excellent customer service
