This booted telescopic drive shaft was developed for a testing application operating with significant axial movement during operation. It has been designed with a ball spline along the center of the shaft. The ball spline is well-suited for high-precision operations with continuous axial movement over pronounced distances, at significant speeds. It counteracts vibrations and operates with low friction, which prevents the shaft from wearing out and galling on the axial sliding section.
