As we all know, universal joints are components that realize variable-angle transmission of power between rotating shafts. A universal joint is a joint that connects two levers. The joint is composed of a pair of ordinary hinges with a relative orientation of 90°, which enables the lever to turn in any direction. It is still widely used in vehicle transmissions. However, there are many classifications, and there are many different types under the classification. For example, 5-153X GU1000 PRECISION 369 universal joint and 5-280X PRECISION 334 universal joint are two different types and sizes.
However, there are actually two types of universal joints, namely, universal joints with obvious elasticity in the torsion direction and universal joints without obvious elasticity in the torsion direction. Universal joints without obvious elasticity in the torsion direction can be divided into non-constant velocity universal joints, quasi-constant velocity universal joints and constant velocity universal joints. Only one type of universal joint has obvious elasticity in the torsion direction. Under the constant velocity universal joint, it can be divided into ball and fork type constant velocity universal joint and ball cage type constant velocity universal joint. Therefore, even according to the general classification, there are many types of universal joints.
5-280X PRECISION 334 universal joint as a subdivision of model and size, its use and method will not be very different. So remember to look for the type and size when purchasing.
