Cardan shaft

Cardan shafts compensate parallel misalignment between the driving and driven shaft

Cardan shafts allow the transmission of torque in a bent shaft assembly and are typically found
in the following applications:

  • Paper mills (paper machine, calender, coating machine)
  • Steel plants (pickling line, rolling mill, galvanization line, annealing furnace, skin-pass stand)
  • Converting industry (coating systems, extrusion systems, laminating systems)
  • Automotive industry
  • Cement plants
  • Chemical industry
  • Vessels
  • Mining
  • Power plants
  • Printing industry.

 

Cardan shafts compensate parallel misalignment between the driving and driven shaft. Failure
to minimize angular misalignment between the two shafts results in:

  • Vibrations
  • Uneven rotation of the driven shaft
  • Incorrect regulation due to the uneven rotation
  • Motor damage.


Precise alignment of the driving and driven shaft prolongs the service life of machine trains and
prevents unplanned machine downtime.
