MOTION CONTROL/POWER TRANSMISSION: Two new catalogs from Ameridrives Power Transmission (APT) offer engineering data, application service factors and selection information and procedures for APT’s Series 2000, 3000 and 5000 Americardan® Universal Joints. They are available at no charge. Catalogs provide information on U-joint design; construction and assembly; speed limits; companion flange dimensions; design variations and custom applications; kinematics and motion characteristics; bore tolerances and weights; and more. The 2000 and 3000 Series universal joints are ideal for industrial applications requiring high-torque capacity and flexibility to operate at high misalignment angles. The 5000 Series universal joints are heavy-duty, high-torque units that offer greater dynamic ratings than other universal joints of equivalent size.
