High-Strength Universal Joints

Belden’s High Strength universal joints are recommended for high-torque applications (e.g. drilling, tapping, packaging, test cells, etc.) They are also suitable for accommodating larger shaft diameters. These friction-bearing joints are constructed with short & long pin design and a rivet. This has the advantage of using pins of equal diameters for both axes, making the joint stronger. High Strength universal joints provide exceptional service life for the most demanding applications.
