Das Belden Wellengelenk ist als eines der präzisesten und verlässlichsten auf dem heutigen Weltmarkt
Belden’s Team von Ingenieuren ist in der Lage, Gelenke für nahezu jeden Anwendungfallzu entwickeln.

Wellengelenke sind flexible Wellenverbindungen welche Drehbewegungen und Dehmomente von einer auf einen andere Welle übertragen können wenn diese einen festen oder im Betrieb veränderlichen Versatz aufweisen. Doppel Wellengelenke sind erforderlich, wenn der Versatz zu gestaltet ist, daß ein Einfachgelenk diesen nicht ausgleichen kann.

High Complexity Mechanical Power Transmission Components

Belden is constantly striving for customer satisfaction, and our capabilities extend well beyond the standard product line. We deliver high-performance solutions for our customers’ specific applications that meet your exact operating criteria, constructed from a range of materials and platings. We also offer 3D printing solutions for prototying.

Regardless of the customer challenge, Belden is committed to providing a solution. 

Custom Joint Example

A customer was having a problem with a standard needle bearing universal joint during a wash-down phase in a food application.  After discussing operating conditions and specifications, Belden developed a custom engineered hybrid pin & block needle bearing joint made completely out of stainless steel with composite bushings. The hybrid pin & block needlebearing design employs a combination of the higher torque capacity of the friction bearing pin & block with the needle bearing's ability to continuously operate at higher speeds with low back lash and less wear.  The Belden solution now allows customers to have a complete wash-down safe universal joint, while eliminating corrosion issues and contamination, burnout, and joint seizure from premature wear.

End Hub Configurations

Belden offers a wide variety of end hub configurations. The six most conventional hub types, in either male or female, are available in inch or metric sizes.

Large Size Outside Diameters

Need a larger outside diameter? No Problem! Belden is equipped to manufacture universal joints and shaft assemblies with outside diameters up to 10 inches. Just fill out the RFQ to get pricing and more information from one of our technical sales people.

Quick-Change Feature

A quick-change feature is available on our custom universal joint drive shaft assembly which allows the universal joint to be quickly removed and replaced without tools. This is an essential feature when machine downtime is crucial. The quick-change universal joint consists of two back-to-back single universal joints connected with a spring loaded intermediate shaft. Pinning of outer yokes is not required because the spring tension on the intermediate shafts holds the quick-change universal joint secure at each end.

Materials & Plating Options

Yokes / Hubs can be made from a wide range of materials:

  •  Alloy Steel
  •  Various Stainless Steels (Standard is AISI 303), 304, 316L, 416, 420, 17-4, 15-5
  •  Various Bronze & Brass Alloys
  •  Various Aluminum Alloys (6061, 7075)

All materials can be plated or additionally treated to improve corrosion resistance or provide other functionality. Some options for plating and surface treatment procedures:

  • Zinc plating
  • Nickel plating
  • Cadmium plating (for aerospace stainless steels)
  • Black Oxide treatment
  • Electro Polishing

Speed, Precision, Durability

Belden's engineering team delivers custom design solutions to any operational and engineering challenge you might face. Our corrosion-resistant stainless steel universal joints repel caustic substances - thereby eliminating corrosion and reduce the chances of contamination.

Belden Universal’s needle bearing joints deliver precise positioning at high RPMs for extended periods of time. They are outfitted with roller bearings that reduce friction, thereby minimize torsional backlash. Stainless steel joints offer resistance to corrosive substances and reduce contamination issues.   This advanced hybrid design combines the higher torque capacity of a pin + block joint with the needle bearing's ability to continuously operate at higher speeds with low friction. The stainless steel and composite bearing structure eliminates corrosion issues, contamination, burnout, and joint seizure.




Drive shaft assemblies are the ideal solution for axial and parallel misalignment or applications where axial movement is required during rotation and power transmission. The telescoping feature provides flexible length as needed. The optional spring loaded and quick release features enable quick installation.   Boots provide added protection in harsh environments, extending the life of the joint. Lubricant retaining boots will prolong the useful life of an assembly by a factor of as much as five. They can contain various application specific grease and oil options, including food-grade grease.
