Category Archives: block and Pin u joints

Block and Pin U joints is a universal joint that is slow and needs to be constantly greased so the block doesnt seize up due to lack of grease. The Block and Pin U joints can only run at 1750 RPM, any faster they tend to overheat, leading to premature failure. Replace them with the TSC range of high speed high flex and high couplings in the same sizes and splines.

 

Block and Pin U-Joints compared to Twin Spring Coupling

Block and Pin U joints replacement

Block and Pin U-joints verses Twin Springs no maintenance power transmission couplings. In the world of universal joints there are only two versions, the old block and pin and the newer needle bearing u joints. Block and pin u-joints was originally patented in 1904 making it over a century old, and the technology inside it […]

Ruland Uni joints – 2 reasons to buy Twin Spring

Ruland Uni joints Ruland Uni joints like all universal joint manufacturers all revolve around the same design, so all u joints are the same, some of the internal components are different, the hubs can be made stronger but that also increases the price. The universal joint is all the same whether a friction bearing block […]

Lovejoy Uni joints vs Twin Spring Couplings

Lovejoy Uni joints replacements

Lovejoy uni joints The flexible shaft coupling we will discuss today is the universal joint. Originally invented in the 1683 by Robert Hooke the Hooke joint became the universal joint when patented in 1905 by Clarence Spicer. The Spicer joint then with Spicer’s business partner Charles Dana turned into the current day Dana Holdings. Lovejoy […]

TSC Flexible shaft couplings replaces old uni’s and jaws

TSC flexible shaft couplings

TSC Flexible shaft couplings to replace U joints & Jaw couplings The TSC flexible shaft couplings use a set of springs to be able to flex and transfer torque, this makes them more flexible than a standard u-joint  so there is no need for bearings which require the constant greasing a. to make sure the […]

Bearing failure in Universal joints, what are your options?

Bearing failure in uni joints TSC300 flexible coupling replaces universal joints, servo, beam, bellows and elastomeric couplings

Bearing Failure in Uni joints, there are only a few option available. The universal joint is one of these fundamental shaft coupling solutions, it’s been used for the past 115 years in the automotive industry and longer in other areas like Industrial and farming. The three-piece design while simple, has always had to been maintained […]

Coupling Solutions for Industrial power transmission coupling failures

Coupling solutions replace Lovejoy Universal Joints, Jaw couplings and other couplings. With the 24/7 demands on industrial couplings especially now with the COVID 19 virus meaning less service people and OEM MRO supplies are available, the service manager of these industrial companies have decisions to make. How do I get the most out of the […]

Universal joint replace with the new TSC150

TSC150

Universal joint replacement the new TSC150, a new flexible shaft coupling unit. Pearl River New York – Twin Spring Coupling announced today the release of its 3rd product line the TSC150. Twin Spring Couplings patented design allows the power transmission coupling to do the job of two different flexible shaft coupling technologies in the one […]
