New U-Joint R&D Coming Soon!

Submitted by nick on Wed, 08/09/2023 - 11:16

We wanted to share an update that we are hard at work producing fresh R&D on our proprietary lines of universal joints. This paper will provide a detailed examination of the various U-Joint designs employed in Belden’s precision universal joint lines, highlighting the key differences and the critical factors that influence the static torque capacity of a universal joint.

As we explore the mechanics of the various U-Joint configurations, we hope clarify the inherent benefits, strengths, and limitations of each joint, enabling engineers and designers to have the necessary tools to make well-informed decisions when selecting a universal joint best suited for their application.

Our exploration will provide an in-depth analysis of the different components and load bearing elements, materials, and geometries used in the different designs, and how all elements impact the static torque capacity.

We hope to release our new Whitepaper by the end of August.  In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
