The motor rotating shaft is horizontal, the travel pinion spin axis can be horizontal. The issue is these axes are not aligned, they happen to be parallel to one another. The Cardan Shaft redirects the drive shaft to the drive pinion without changing the way of rotation.
Trusted in industry, cardan shafts have tested practical in applications where space is limited-as well because in scenarios where an factor in the machine train (e.g. paper roll) might need to end up being actuated (dynamically positioned) to an alternate position when the machines are not running. The Cardan Shaft china Universal joint allows for limited movement without uncoupling. To ensure ample lubrication circulation, which avoids the universal joints from seizing, cardan shafts are usually installed with an position from four to six 6 degrees at the universal joints. Experience, though, has shown that the angle between the shafts of the driver and motivated unit ought to be kept to the very least, preferably less than 4.36 mrads (0.25 degrees). Ideally, the angles between the driver and motivated shafts and the cardan shaft, shown as β1 and β2 in Fig. 1, would be equal. Geometrically, this would mean zero angularity existing between the driver and driven unit: In other words, the shafts of the driver and influenced machine would be parallel to one another.

Usually it contains a tubular shaft, two sets of Universal Joints and glove system – ferrule stepper, among others. It can be a component of the transmission system, its function is normally to redirect the engine turning motion, after moving through the gearbox and the travel to the wheel, going right through the ‘planetary and satellite’ system etc.

Our specialised personnel will gladly help you find the right universal joint for your application or will develop the right solution according to your specific requirements.
Cardan shaft, generally known as cardinal shaft, is a component of torque transmission.
