Universal joint shafts

Universal joint shafts

    Voith universal joint shafts offer the ideal combination of torque capacity, torsion and bending rigidity. We supply everything from standard universal joint shafts to customer-specific adaptations and custom designs. Our wide range of services includes technical consultation, simulation of torsional vibrations and measurement of operating parameters.

    Our product portfolio

      Voith universal joint shafts ensure productivity and reduce maintenance costs. The torque capacity extends beyond 20,000 kNm (14 million lbf ft). If necessary, the design layout of our universal joint shafts can be adapted to your drive and operating conditions.

      S Series

      aig_a202213_S-Gelenkwelle.jpg
      The S Series
      De­signed for small- to medium-sized drives

      The S Series is the basic version of Voith universal joint shafts and has been de­signed for small- to medium-sized drives. The connection flanges are friction flanges. In building the S universal joint shafts, we use high-strength tempered and case-hardened steels that assure the ability to withstand static and dynamic loads. The universal joint shafts have high torque capacity combined with optimal bending and torsion rigidity.

      R Series

      The R Series
      The R Series
      Designed for medium-sized torques, and high-speed drives

      These universal joint shafts are of modular design and can be easily integrated into your drives. The flange con­nec­tions are available in friction and positive locking designs. The R-series have been optimized using FEM. High-strength tempered and case-hardened steels and center sections with a large diameter serve to reduce 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.

      The CH Series
      Individually designed for high and maximum torques

      The CH Series is the standard for high and maximum torques. CH universal joint shafts, connection components and shaft support systems are individually built to specific requirements of your drive system. Flanges and flange yokes are available in a very wide range of designs and materials. We offer you a complete customized drive solution from one single source.

      E Series

      Bild fehlt noch
      The E Series
      Individually designed for high-performance drives with maximum torques

      The E Series joints have the greatest torque cap­acity in comparison with the other series – it transmits a torque up to 20% greater than a CH universal joint shaft with the same joint diameter and features increased bearing life. The E Series universal joint shaft can be equipped with an E joint at both ends or one E joint can be combined with a CH joint. It is ideal if installation space is limited.

      The E Series, connection components and shaft support systems are individually built to specific requirements of your drive system. Flanges and flange yokes are available in a very wide range of designs and materials. We offer you a complete customized drive solution from one single source.

        INTELLIGENT WEAR PROTECTION

        OnCare.Health Cardan Shafts

          The torque signals are analyzed in real time and processed to provide characteristic values for the specific cardan shaft. Using intelligent algorithms, the service life of the cardan shaft bearings and joints is calculated, allowing you to more effectively plan when to replace or procure individual system components.

          Voith offers an intelligent torque and life cycle monitoring for cardan shafts
