Best Industrial power transmission couplings for 2021 The best industrial power transmission couplings for the mass industrial market are broken roughly into these 5 types of couplings, some have subsets as well, the elastomeric couplings have jaw couplings as segment where some people treat them as a category by themselves. These couplings are also constructed […]

Universal joints are an old 100+ years old coupling solution, 3 pieces with a center bearing that needs to be constantly maintained.
The bearings need constant greasing to ensure the bearings inside dont seize, broken yokes are another issue. Twin Spring Coupling offers a one piece coupling, with no internal bearings to maintain or replace when worn.
Its one piece design means a longer lasting coupling with less breakdowns and reduced maintenance schedules
Weasler PTO couplings Weasler PTO couplings are a brand well known in the agriculture u-joints, Walterscheid and Bondioli as well . They all 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 […]
Twin Spring Coupling producers of the revolutionary hybrid mechanical power transmission couplings would like to wish you all a happy holiday season and a joyous new year. Here’s hoping that 2021 is a better year for us all. We are going to be making some announcements in early January about a design change for our […]
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 […]
Coupling bearing contaminants – Water, mud, dirt and dust contaminants are one of the many ways that bring uni joints to a halt. Rubber boots, constant greasing and inspections are the usual way used to keep the coupling bearing inside couplings working. That’s part of the ROI but what about the annual cost that adds […]
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 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
