Universal joints by Ruland vs Twin Spring flexible shaft coupling

Ruland Universal joints Ruland universal joints like all universal joint manufacturers all revolve around the same design, 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 friction bearing block […]

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, […]

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 […]

Coupling Solutions for Industrial power transmission coupling failures

Replace Lovejoy Universal Joints, Jaw Type couplings and other couplings like Beam and Bellows  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 […]
