The electric motor rotating shaft is horizontal, the drive 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 travel shaft to the drive pinion without changing the way of rotation.
Trusted in industry, cardan shafts have tested practical about applications where space is limited-as well because in circumstances where an component in the machine train (e.g. paper roll) may need to always be actuated (dynamically positioned) to an alternate position when the machines are not jogging. The universal joint allows for limited movement without uncoupling. To ensure adequate lubrication circulation, which in turn helps prevent the universal joints from seizing, cardan shafts are usually installed with an angle from four to six 6 degrees at the universal joints. Encounter, though, has demonstrated that the angle between your shafts of the driver and driven unit should be kept to the very least, preferably significantly less than 4.36 mrads (0.25 degrees). Ideally, the angles between the driver and influenced shafts and the cardan shaft, displayed as β1 and β2 in Fig. 1, would be equal. Geometrically, this might mean zero angularity existing between the driver and driven product: Quite simply, the shafts of the driver and influenced machine would be parallel to one another.
Usually it involves a tubular shaft, two sets of Universal Joints and glove system – ferrule stepper, amongst others. It is a component of the transmission system, its function is to redirect the Cardan Shaft china engine turning motion, after passing through the gearbox and the drive to the wheel, going right through the ‘planetary and satellite’ system etc.
Our specialised staff will gladly support you in finding the proper universal joint for the application or will develop the right solution according to your unique requirements.
Cardan shaft, also known as cardinal shaft, is an element of torque transmission.
