Universal Joints -The downside is it wasn’t able to handle angles before they start to wear the bearings out, and the constant maintenance requirements make it a product that becomes expensive to use.
The Twin Spring coupling dual spring design allows for minimal windup, non-balanced maintenance free coupling solution with the positives of high torque capacity and increased flexibility even at speed.
This means where applications that need torque and misalignment while still working at high speed can now be achieved without resorting to a beam or jaw coupling (which still cannot work at increased angle misalignment.
The Twin Spring coupling contains no internal components that require maintenance so we offer the positives of high torque and misalignment in one coupling without the worry of maintenance.
Twin Spring Coupling has no yokes as its one piece design means its integrated end hubs take the place of the yokes and the industry standard splines mean a common fit to all existing universal joints it replaces.
At low angle misalignment, Twin Spring coupling maintains its torsional rigidity and high speed, it also continues to do so as misalignment continues to increase due to the pivoting central ball bearing which allows torque to transfer through the coupling.
