Flanged universals are also commonly known as yoke style universal joints. These joints are a derivative of automotive universal joints introduced originally as off-road vehicle and agricultural devices. The industrial standard flanged universal joints were modified for industrial applications that we have adopted for various applications. Universal joints are designed for applications that require high misalignment under high torque. Our typical universal joints are designed for 15 degrees of misalignment. However, the selection is based on torque requirements and bearing life (B10 hours), as required per application.
