Universal Joint – The joint contains 4 small bearings at the end of each of the cross, these bearings need to be maintained and kept lubricated or they will heat up and seize, requiring replacement meaning time and money, add to that the universal joint design which allows the two attached shafts to work out of alignment. This misalignment means the ball bearings inside the bearings will wear against the outside of the race (groove the ball bearings sit in) leading to the race being enlarged and the ball bearings becoming loose, leading to increase vibration potentially damaging attached equipment or bearing failure.

Yokes – The Yokes allow the two shafts (input/output) to attach to the universal joint. These yokes vary and some have to be welded on to the shaft. The yokes are substantial in size except where they attach to the universal joint, they are only slightly larger to ensure the joint can work at an angle without binding or hitting the propeller joint. This is an area of weakness as this can be an area where cracking can lead to failure, as we have see recently with the Ford Transit van driveline recall. Stress, the universal joint being used at a large angle of misalignment, a moderate blow along the input/output shaft can lead to this kind of cracking.

Automotive - Universal Joint replacement (Driveline, Steering & PTO)

TSC300 Auto

$190.00

TSC300 Auto is a replacement for universal joint in a driveshaft, steering, axle and any universal joint replacement. Replace any Spicer, SKF, Neapco or Moog universal joint coupling.

Couplings in the automotive industry have a number of issues to contend with, annual maintenance, the automobile has evolved but the technology that makes up the universal joint has not. Twin Spring Coupling TSC 300 Auto offers something different. Traditional couplings have to be balanced and can only run at angles of 8° or less otherwise you get wear in the bearings within the propeller shaft of the universal joint. The bearing races will start to wear on the outside which means the ball bearings will become loose and that creates vibration and with continual wear the ball bearings will fail. Use our twin spring design, flexible with the ability to handle high torque and high speed, with no internal components to replace.

500 ft lb (static torque) replacement for universal joint in a driveshaft, steering, axle and any universal joint replacement. Replace any Spicer 1300-1310 u joint (models 5-3214x and 5-3213x) GKN, Moog and Neapco universal joint coupling. Couplings in the automotive industry have a number of issues to contend with, annual maintenance, replacement of worn components, the automobile has evolved but the technology that makes up the universal joint has not. Twin Spring Coupling offers something different. Twin Spring Coupling is different it replaces the entire U joint, yokes, propeller/cross bearings everything, with a simple one piece design. It can also replace any U joint off-road model as well. Designed with no internal bearings, means our coupling is truly maintenance free, making it impervious to water, mud, dust, dirt and other contaminants. This saves time and on annual maintenance bills. Universal joint replacement for Spicer, Spicerparts, Neapco, Moog, SKF, Spicer, GMB, Belden couplings. Flexible up to 20 degrees Under load (35 degrees not under load).

TSC150 Industrial 1/4″ Keyway

$150.00

TSC150 Industrial 1/4" Keyway coupling replacement for industrial coupling users.

Replace any flexible coupling, whether its a Jaw or Lovejoy D4 universal joint with a maintenance free flexible alternative.

Couplings in the industrial sector traditionally are broken into two sectors, the beam/bellows or elastomeric couplings that can only run at angles of 4° or less otherwise they wear out, as they cannot physically flex beyond that, normally they run at 2°. The other are universal joints which can normally only run at 8° otherwise prematurely wearing the bearings within the propeller shaft of the universal joint. The bearing races will start to wear on the outside which means the ball bearings will become loose and that creates vibration and with continual wear the ball bearings will fail. The bearings need also to be constantly greased otherwise the ball bearings will not have any lubrication, and with them running at high speed the balls will seize in their tracks again leading to bearing failure. Jaw couplings the spiders wear after use of 1-2° and yokes can crack. Bellows are only good for 2° before they start to wear. Twin Spring Coupling can run up to 20° without needing to be lubrication, and at low angles of misalignment and comparable high speeds to traditional industrial couplings. Replace Lovejoy coupling, Neapco, Belden, Ruland, Helical, TB Woods, Altra, Tsubaki, Moog, Boston Gear and Spicer couplings.

TSC300 Industrial 1/2" coupling

300 ft lb replacement for mechanical power transmission couplings and universal joint in any industrial power transmission application. Couplings in an industrial power transmission setup have a number of issues to contend with, annual maintenance, fundamental design flaws coming from a century old technology, industry has evolved but the technology that makes up the standard coupling and universal joint has not. Twin Spring Coupling offers something different. Industrial power transmission is broken into two main areas, high speed low angle of misalignment and lower speed higher angle of misalignment. Traditionally these two needs have been service by two different couplings. Motion control couplings like beam, bellows, jaw, elastomeric type couplings and the universal joint. No bearings to grease or replace. No worn spider or inserts to replace. Flexible as a universal joint. Torsionally rigid for high speed applications. One piece design.
