Belden’s Needle Bearing Universal Joints fit the mechanical linkage needs of multiple applications, including those in the textile industry. Needle bearing universal joints are sealed and lubricated cross & bearing type joints with rigid axial stiffness for push & pull loads. This design is ideal for handling the rotation and axial load of yarn at the end of a spindle. In addition, Belden’s pin and block style universal joints are well suited for high heat applications - e.g. where a joint is used right next to a hot polymer pump. These Belden Universal Joints are packed with high temperature lubricant to enhance operating life.
