Uni joint are a 3 piece power transmission coupling unit, that works at high torque, speed up to 6000 rpm and 8° of misalignment.

Uni joint usually can be used at a maximum of 8° misalignment, but anything above this will cause premature wear and means replacement of the bearings and block.

Broken Yokes are an issue also especially at high torque.

Twin Spring Coupling does all three, high speed, high flex and high torque in a one piece design with no internal components to be maintained and replaced.

Friction Bearing U-Joints compared to Twin Spring Coupling

Friction bearing U-joints replacement

Friction bearing U-joints verses Twin Springs no maintenance power transmission couplings. In the world of universal joints there are only two versions, the old block and pin and the newer needle bearing u joints. Friction bearing u-joints was originally patented in 1904 making it over a century old, and the technology inside it hasnt changed, […]

Ruland Uni joints – 2 reasons to buy Twin Spring

Ruland uni joints replacement

Ruland Uni joints Uni joints like all universal joint manufacturers all revolve around the same design, Ruland is no different so all u joints are the same, some of the internal components are different, the hubs can be made stronger but that also increases the price. The universal joint is all the same whether a […]

New TSC Flexible shaft couplings replaces old uni’s and jaws

TSC flexible shaft couplings

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 […]

Bearing failure in Universal joints?

Bearing failure in uni joints TSC300 flexible coupling replaces universal joints, servo, beam, bellows and elastomeric couplings

Bearing Failure in Uni joints, 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 […]

Coupling Solutions for Industrial power transmission coupling failures

Coupling solutions for industrial sector

Coupling solutions replace Lovejoy Universal Joints, Jaw couplings and other couplings. With the 24/7 demands on industrial couplings especially now with the COVID 19 virus meaning less service people and OEM MRO supplies are available, the service manager of these industrial companies have decisions to make. How do I get the most out of the […]
