Stainless-Steel U-Joints

Misalignment places added strain on bearings and other mechanical components, causing accelerated wear and premature part failure. Couplings can resolve these issues, but there are specific motion control applications where a standard coupling will not suffice.
Universal joint couplings have a unique design that accommodates misalignment in applications involving single rotating parts and uncommon angles. Operational efficiency is further enhanced by a zero-backlash design offering true misalignment compensation.

Zero-Backlash Universal Joint Couplings 

Ondrives.US offers Zero Backlash Universal Joints in various bore sizes and torque capacities to accommodate your machine’s needs. All stainless steel construction resists corrosion, extending the life of your universal joint couplings. The true zero backlash design delivers smoother operation for improved motion control and mechanical performance.Request modified or custom stainless-steel U-joints for applications requiring non-standard materials and inch or metric bore sizes. Our application engineers also created CAD drawings and a shaft coupling misalignment guide to help you select the right product for your application.

 

The Ondrives.US Advantage: Stainless Steel Universal Joint Couplings

Ondrive.US U-joint couplings use precision balls, burnished custom spherical sockets, and accurately sized components. When assembled, an elastic preload eliminates clearance between bearing surfaces.
Our zero-backlash universal joint couplings handle up to a 10° operating angle for zero-backlash at full torque and up to a 30˚operating angle at 50% torque. We offer three styles with max input speeds of 3,600 RPM and torque levels up to 600 in-lbs.
  • Zero-backlash operation
  • Precision machined stainless steel construction
  • Inch and metric sizes available
  • Stocked in 303 stainless steel (304 or 316 stainless steel U-Joints available by request)
  • Permanently lubricated
  • Modified and custom shaft couplings
