Weasler PTO couplings comparison

Weasler PTO couplings Weasler are a brand well known in the agriculture industry, much like Spicer Uni joints in the Auto industry. Both rely on the underlying universal joint technology to work. The only real difference is the Weasler PTO couplings are made using larger uni joints, revolving around technology like the Spicer 1310/ Spicer […]

Spicer Universal joints verses Twin Spring Coupling flexible shaft couplings

Spicer universal joints The universal joint 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. Spicer Universal […]

Flexible shaft coupling TSC300 replaces BOTH Universal Joints and Jaw Type couplings

Twin Spring Coupling TSC300– Flexible shaft 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 bearings 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 […]

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 power transmission couplings cant last in the era of Industry 4.0 and Amazon

Flexible Twin Spring Coupling

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 […]

New Decade New Company

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

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 […]
