Replace Spicer, Belden, Lovejoy, Moog, SKF, Neapco and McMaster Carr coupling with twin spring coupling maintenance free coupling

Happy holidays and happy new year

Twin Spring Coupling producers of the revolutionary hybrid mechanical power transmission couplings would like to wish you all a happy holiday season and a joyous new year. Here’s hoping that 2021 is a better year for us all. We are going to be making some announcements in early January about a design change for our […]

Flexible mechanical coupling replaces BOTH Universal Joints and Jaw Type couplings

Twin Spring Coupling TSC300– Flexible Mechanical coupling to replace U joints & Jaw couplings The Twin Spring Coupling offers the following advantages over a Universal joint or a L Jaw type coupling. No internal components that need to be greased and replaced when worn Flexible to 35° One-piece design so no bearing kits to replace, […]

Are mechanical coupling bearing contaminants causing downtime and warranty issues for you?

Water, mud, dirt and dust contaminants are one of the many ways that bring flexible mechanical couplings to a halt. Rubber boots, constant greasing and inspections are the usual way used to keep the bearings inside couplings working. That’s part of the ROI but what about the annual cost that adds to keeping your customers […]

Bearing failure in Universal joints, why and what are your options?

In mechanical power transmission, 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 otherwise […]

Solution for Industrial power transmission coupling failures

Replace Lovejoy Universal Joints, Jaw Type couplings and other couplings like Beam and Bellows  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 […]

Covid 19 and coupling maintenance

Less people means less coupling maintenance means more breakdowns In times of crisis like we are living through now we have less people to do the work that needs to be done as most people are at home trying to steer clear of contracting or worse spreading the Covid 19 virus. This included maintenance of […]

The true cost of universal joints

The true cost of universal joints are not so simple, a low initial price but with ongoing maintenance means it becomes a lot more expensive Lets face it, its an old technology, 115 years old to be exact, the first use of the word by inventor Robert Hooke in 1676 shows the coupling is far […]

Spring’s here – its universal joint maintenance time.

Universal Joint and power transmission couplings So the weather is changing, the short cold days of winter are starting to recede. Now is the time of the service manager starting to his maintenance schedule for plant and equipment. Couplings come into play here as the constant greasing of universal joints and replacement of worn bearings/yokes […]

Twin Spring Coupling products now ISO9001:2015 standard

Twin Spring coupling flexible coupling replaces universal joints, servo, beam, bellows and elastomeric couplings

Does a QA system resolve fundamental design flaws like that in a universal joint? Twin Spring Coupling with its alliance with Yuanlu announces all our products are now ISO9001 QA certified. The certification is important especially after we have seen the universal joint/yoke failures in the Ford range of Transit vans and their subsequent recall. […]

Couplings – How old mechanical power transmission couplings cant last in the era of Industry 4.0 and Amazon

Flexible Twin Spring Coupling

Mechanical power transmission couplings – Universal Joints, jaw type couplings, beam couplings, bellows couplings and elastomeric couplings all suffer from the same design flaws. We have always used them, they are the only things we use, we just accept the annual maintenance cost and failure rate. A common story from manufacturers and distributors, the power […]
