The same reason, off-road vehicle transmission and splitter between the front drive between the steering axle and axle, need this joint to do "joints." The structure and function of the universal joint is somewhat like the joint on the body limbs, which allows the angle between the connected parts to change. But it is different from the form of physical activity of the limb joints, it only allows the angle to change within a certain range. The following are the same as the "
Universal joint with cross-axis rigid universal joint, quasi-constant velocity universal joint (double shaft and three pin axis), constant velocity universal joint (ball * and cage), disturbance universal joint The The following are the same as the "
At present, after the drive on the car the most widely used a universal universal joint by the universal joint *, cross shaft and other basic parts. Cross shaft assembly on the universal joint * to do the connection, the cross shaft shaft head with needle roller bearings, when the shaft head access universal joint *, the cross shaft and universal joint * can be between the relative rotation, also It produced a multi-angle change. Universal joint * on the spline connection can do a small amount of axial movement, so to adapt to the angle and distance at the same time changing needs.
