Flexible shafts

A flexible drive shaft assembly transmits rotary motion much like a solid shaft, but it can be routed over, under, and around obstacles that would make using a solid shaft impractical. A “Flexible Drive Shaft Assembly” consists of a rotating shaft (sometimes called a core) with end fittings for attachment to the driving and driven mating parts. A protective outer casing is used when necessary.

Flexible Shafts are a preferred rotary motion transmission device because they:

  • Eliminate alignment problems:
  • Provide Greater design freedom
  • Have Higher Efficiency
  • Allow large offsets
  • Are Light weight and powerful
  • Have Lower Installation Cost
  • Reduce parts cost
  • Are Easy To Install: Need no special installation tools.
  • Can Be Designed At The Latter Stages Of A Project
  • Are not affected by vibrations
