A drive shaft, driveshaft, driving shaft, propeller shaft (prop shaft), or Cardan shaft 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. For different applications, different models are selected from our wide product range.
Our range of Cardan Shafts can be categorised as follows:
In addition to the designs and sizes mentioned, a wide variety is available on request
Keeping in mind the various requirements of the customers, we are involved in manufacturing and supplying a wide assortment of Cardan Shafts Parts. These Cardan Shafts Parts are highly durable in nature and available in the market in various sizes and specifications. Cardan Shafts Parts are extensively used to connect other components.
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:
Rotational dia: 75mm to 1600mm
Length :250mm to 15meters
Nominal torque range: 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.
Nuhydro offers a wide range of connecting parts in order to complete different requirements in accordance to different applications of Cardan Shafts / Drive Shafts
Standard Companion Flange
The standard companion flange corresponds exactly to the dimensions of the cardan shaft size to which they are assigned. These connecting parts can be connected as full body design or with an offset design, as well as with keyway, dual keyway or shrink fit connection.
Companion Flange with special connection
In order to transmit higher torques, the connections are equipped with especially durable and wear-free properties, example with face keys, dowel pin. Additional surface treatments are possible, such as nickel and chrome plating.
