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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
