Cardan Joints or Hooke joints? The Cardan joint was invented by Gerolamo Cardano in the 15th century, or at least the gimbal mountings that a modern day Universal joint contains. The Cardan joint gimbals are what we see today in the cross or bearings cross of a universal joint, the actual universal joints themselves were […]

Spicer universal joints have been around since 1904, time for something new.
Twin Spring Coupling offers no bearings to grease or replacement when worn. Flexible to 45°, one piece design means no broken yokes. Various models compatible with the Spicer 1310, 1200 and 1000 series models.
Time for something new
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 […]
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 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 […]
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 transmission […]
Good morning and welcome to the new Twin Spring Coupling We are making some changes now we are starting to expand. We are adding a blog to give you more information about what we do and new customers and how they use our flexible shaft couplings, showing you how our couplings are replacements for a […]
