Universal Joints for Motion Control and Robotics

The precision you need to keep things in motion

Belden’s Needle Bearing Universal Joints can attain high angles and operate at a higher RPM than other joints, making them perfect for a variety of motion control and robotics applications. With near zero backlash and rigid axial stiffness for push & pull loads, the needle-bearing universal joint is manufactured to meet the highest industry standards. Customization is our specialty - hubs can be machined in alloy steel with a variety of platings, various grades of stainless steel, forgings and extruded aluminum for a high strength-to-weight ratio.
