Telescopic U-Joints

Zero Backlash in a Telescopic U-Joint

Our unique zero backlash telescopic universal joints feature precision balls, burnished custom spherical sockets, and accurately-sized components that help eliminate clearance between bearing surfaces under an elastic preload.

At full torque (up to 600 in-lbs.—varies by model), Ondrives.US telescoping shaft couplings provide zero backlash at operating angles up to 10°. At 50% torque, they operate with zero backlash at operating angles up to 30°.

Precision universal joints are available in a range of standard inch and metric bore sizes, from 3/16” to 1” and 5mm to 25mm. Any bore-to-bore combination is possible within those limits, making these zero backlash precision u-joints ideal for myriad applications.
