MBDB

Features

・New coupling that incorporates tolerance endplay function in a universal joint.
・Simple construction-composed of three elements : an outer hub, an inner hub(Stainless steel), and multiple balls.
・No splashing even at high speed, thanks to the use of special high-viscosity grease.
・Compact, with high-strength, making it suitable for miniaturization of mechanisms.

Assembly Example 1

Shaft has same diameter as hub screw.
Thread the end of the shaft and fix it using the locknut.

 

 

 

Assembly Example 2

Shaft is thicker than the hub screw diameter.
Thread the end of the shaft and fix it using a screw-in plug.

 

Note:

・Fix the shaft-coupling component using a strong adhesive, such as “Loctite”.
・Strong high-viscosity grease is applied to the ball joint.
・Since the inner hub is free in the axial direction during rotation, it has left-light movement.
