Why are universal couplings widely used?
Universal couplings are just like the joints of human hands and legs.while the structure of the machine is different from humans. They have different functions and forms. Therefore, the universal couplings used on the machine are much more diverse than our human joints .
This determines that there are many types of couplings, such as small and precise universal couplings, such as larger flexible and rigid couplings, even more larger universal transmission shafts.
People are in different shape ,such as tall, short, fat, and thin;so the joint size is also different. Similarly, different machines, even they use the same type of coupling, there will be differences in size, so when you need to choose a coupling,first ,you must clearlyunderstand the machine model, the size ,the power, the rolling speed, how much force need to transfer, then you have the much chance to find the most suitable coupling. Otherwise it can only bring damage to the machine, just like you are 1.6 meteres.However, if you are equipped with a joint suitable for Yao Ming's long legs;do you think it will be very coordinated ?of course not ,it will be a big burden on your body?
Universal couplings are mainly suitable for heavy machinery such as rolling machinery, lifting and transportation machinery. Such as automobiles, tractors, various tracked vehicles, diesel locomotives, machine tools, rolling mills, etc. Others such as construction, light industry, chemical, food, packaging machinery, etc. Universal couplings are also widely used in other construction, light industry, chemical, food, packaging machinery, etc.
For example, in the petroleum industry, oil start-up, pumping, and drilling, universal couplings are required.
So why its so widely used? What are the advantages?
1 High transmission efficiency, good reliability and high corrosion resistance
Since its high transmission efficiency, good reliability, and high corrosion resistance, it can be used in high temperature, low oil, and corrosive media working environments.So Its can be widely used in the automotive industry.In rear-drive vehicles, universal joints are needed between the engine, clutch and transmission. Can reduce vehicle vibration, reduce component damage and noise, and extend component life.
2 simple structure,easy manufacture
Universal joint structure is relatively simple, and the parts are not complicated. Most can be manufactured by ordinary processing, allowing the included angle between the two shafts to vary within a limited range according to the needs .
