Application Ideas

HIGH ANGLE APPLICATIONS

  • Where shaft angles are greater than 10 degrees
  • Where the (speed x angle) relationship exceeds 14,000

NON PARALLEL SHAFT APPLICATIONS

  • Use to transmit torque at constant velocity through only one coupling at an angle
  • Use to transmit torque at constant velocity through 2 couplings and a connecting shaft with unequal or varying angles without the need for phased coupling connections; please click on this image to view video –>

AXIAL LOAD TRANSFER APPLICATIONS

  • Suspend rotating loads through the coupling – go to 4:45 in this video
  • Transmit rotating thrust load component through the coupling at an angle

RENEWABLE ENERGY DESIGN APPLICATIONS

  • Moves the Generator to Ground level
  • Saves on Tower construction costs
  • No power loss, no vibration, no noise
  • Lower maintenance cost by having work at ground level
  • Safer working environment CV-RAD- please click on this image to view video—>

CONSTANT VELOCITY REQUIREMENTS

  • True 1:1 constant velocity through the joint provids benefits in:
  • Overall minimal vibration disturbances to the drivetrain system;
  • no inertial excitations from non constant velocity components;
  • no induced torsional loads transferred to the system;
  • reduced secondary couple loading on supporting bearing structures;
  • reducing energy consumption. Please click on this image to view video –>
