90 Degrees Shaft Coupling in One Piece

Most flexible shaft couplings rely on a number of moving parts to enable the transmission of torque through a high angular offset.  The Helical Flexure is an advanced solution that can accommodate up to 90° of angular misalignment whilst simultaneously compensating for axial and parallel shaft misalignments, but delivering all of these advantages from a single piece construction.

The performance capability of each shaft coupling is determined by six major characteristics:  outside diameter, inside diameter, coil thickness, material, number of coils, and the number of starts. By altering these characteristics, torque capacity, angular and parallel misalignment capabilities, torsional and lateral bending rates of flexured u-joints can be modified to suit specific specifications and/or requirements.

The high angular shaft offset couplings are manufactured from stainless steel as standard so are ideal for medical, food processing or any clean room environment applications. The designer benefits from a number of advantages which include a choice of materials, the ability to have an infinite choice of end attachments and most importantly a maintenance free product.
