R Series universal joint shafts are the best solution for medium-sized torques and especially for high-speed drives. These universal joint shafts are of modular design and can be integrated into your drives with a great deal of flexibility. The flange connections are available in friction and positive locking designs.
The universal joint shafts of this series have been optimized using FEM. The use of high-strength tempered and case-hardened steels and center sections with a large diameter reduces the weight. At the same time, the bending and torsion rigidity is increased. As a result, the universal joint shaft is highly efficient in operation and less sensitive to vibration stress.
Our experts choose the universal joint shaft that precisely matches your application. We don't just consider the load data of the universal joint shaft, we also look at the resonance ranges that are critical for flexure and torsion. Your universal joint shaft is operationally reliable and has a long lifetime. Low maintenance costs further improve the life cycle costs of your machine or system.
If necessary, we can adapt the design layout of our universal joint shafts to your drive and operating conditions.
