The engine rotating shaft is horizontal, the drive pinion spin axis can be horizontal. The trouble is these axes aren’t aligned, they happen to be parallel to each other. The Cardan Shaft redirects the drive shaft to the drive pinion without changing the course of rotation.
Trusted in industry, cardan shafts have tested practical upon applications where space is limited-as well as in scenarios where an factor in the device train (e.g. paper roll) might need to be actuated (dynamically positioned) to an alternate position when the machines are not working. The universal joint permits Cardan Shaft china limited movements without uncoupling. To make sure satisfactory lubrication circulation, which in turn prevents the universal joints from seizing, cardan shafts are normally installed with an position from 4 to 6 6 degrees at the universal joints. Experience, though, has demonstrated that the position between your shafts of the driver and powered unit ought to be kept to a minimum, preferably less than 4.36 mrads (0.25 degrees). Preferably, the angles between your driver and powered shafts and the cardan shaft, displayed as β1 and β2 in Fig. 1, will be equal. Geometrically, this would mean zero angularity existing between your driver and driven device: Put simply, the shafts of the driver and powered machine would be parallel to one another.
Usually it involves a tubular shaft, two sets of Universal Joints and glove system – ferrule stepper, among others. It is a component of the transmission system, its function is usually 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 staff will gladly support you in finding the right universal joint for your application or will develop the right solution according to your unique requirements.
Cardan shaft, also referred to as cardinal shaft, is an element of torque transmission.
