Universal Joints - Tailored solutions at ABSSAC

Universal joints are particularly efficient at transmitting torque through greater shaft offset angles than a standard shaft coupling design can. ABSSAC supplies miniature and industrial sizes, using standard cast model numbers up to specifically designed machined units. Recently, one of ABSSAC’s Universal Joint products has just passed extensive testing connecting an electric motor to a compressor for use in large cold store. As part of a national refurbishment, 303 Stainless steel was utilised to accept both the arduous environmental requirements, but also a possible static torque of up 9150Nm (81000lbin).  Each U-Joint was 100mm (4”) in diameter and 270mm ( 10.6”) long and capable of accepting up to 35 degrees of angular shaft offset. ABSSAC was chosen as the preferred supplier on cost, delivery and performance.  As standard we offer the following types of universal joint that can accomodate bore sizes from 4mm to 50mm bore sizes. Other bore sizes including keyways are available on request.
