The universal joint shafts of the ZR- and GX-Series serve to connect worm gear screw jacks in the construction of lifting systems.
Two versions of universal joint shafts are available:
The elastomer flange is characteristic for universal joint shafts of the design type GX. Thereby the drive shafts attenuate noise, vibrations and impacts and compensate for axial, radial and angular errors. An exceptional torsional rigidity, high temperature and oil resistance are further positive features, and therefore are particularly suitable for long dimensions between axes and for high drives.
Combined with conventional claw couplings, the universal joint shaft of the ZR-Series is an economic alternative. A further advantage over the universal joint shaft GX is the compact design in the external diameter.
