Cardan Shaft

The motor rotating shaft is horizontal, the travel pinion spin axis can be horizontal. The problem is these axes aren’t aligned, they will be parallel to each other. The Cardan Shaft redirects the drive shaft to the travel pinion without changing the path of rotation.
Trusted in industry, cardan shafts have confirmed practical in applications where space is limited-as well while in conditions where an aspect in the device train (e.g. paper roll) might need to always be actuated (dynamically positioned) to an alternate position when the devices are not working. The universal joint permits limited activity without uncoupling. To ensure enough lubrication circulation, which in turn prevents the universal joints from seizing, cardan shafts are normally installed with an position from four to six 6 degrees at the universal joints. Experience, though, has demonstrated that the angle between your shafts of the driver and motivated unit ought to be kept to the very least, preferably significantly less than 4.36 mrads (0.25 degrees). Ideally, the angles between your driver and motivated shafts and the cardan shaft, shown as β1 and β2 in Fig. 1, will be equal. Geometrically, this might mean zero angularity existing between your driver and driven product: Put simply, the shafts of the driver and influenced machine will be parallel to each other.

Usually it includes a tubular shaft, two sets of Universal Joints and glove system – ferrule stepper, among others. It can be a component of the transmission system, its function can be to redirect the engine turning movements, after passing through the gearbox and the drive to the wheel, going through the ‘planetary and satellite’ system etc.

Our specialised personnel will gladly support you in finding the proper universal joint for the application or will develop a suitable solution according to your unique requirements.
Cardan shaft, also referred to as cardinal shaft, is a component of torque transmission.
