The Ameridrives Universal Joint
The universal joints manufactured by Ameridrives are made for demanding industrial applications.
Universal joints have several unique features that make them ideal for a variety of applications. Most significant is the ability of the universal joint to operate at high misalignment angles. Operating angles up to 15 degrees are not uncommon.
Another feature of the universal joint is the bearing and seal design that resists lubrication loss and contamination. This makes Ameridrives Universal Joints suitable for applications where severe atmospheric conditions would put other couplings at a distinct disadvantage.
Ameridrives Universal Joint yokes are precisely engineered using the latest design technologies. They are manufactured as a one-piece, closed bearing eye design, assuring the highest degree of strength and minimum distortion under load.
