Cardan Shafts - U-Joints - Universal Joint Shafts

GEWES Cardan Shafts, or even called u-joints, facilitate reliable torque transfer between spatially remote drive and output trains. Cardan shafts from GEWES offer suitable mechanical drive solutions in nearly all industrial sectors due to their versatile design and their high efficiency.

Our weight-optimised, energy-efficient, high-performance universal joint shafts are developed by using advanced methods and FEM calculations to provide optimal tube wall strengths and diameters for high torsion and bending resistance.

We use tempered steel and case-hardened steel for our u-joints. Calibrated precision steel tubes are used for particularly demanding solutions. All materials used fulfil the requirements for marine classification and rail vehicle applications. Reliable and continuous operation of our u-joints with a high torque capacity is therefore guaranteed. Our Cardan shafts are further characterised by low-maintenance components and low maintenance costs over the entire product life cycle.

Our dynamic balancing systems allow balancing of universal joint shafts with high accuracy to comply with the specifications for applications that involve fast-turning universal joints. Running with low vibrations reduces the load on the drive and the universal joints. This leads to a longer service life and creates less operating noise.

Our specialised staff will gladly help you find the right universal joint for your application or will develop a suitable solution according to your specific requirements.

Double Cardan Shafts

GEWES has produced double cardan shafts for powered, steered axles in the medium and heavy application range for more than 50 years.

This experience has led to the development of proven designs characterised by:

Large deflection angles up to 52 degrees and compact designs due to journal crosses with axle offset
High torque capacity
Long service life due to the rolled profiles of the shafts
Use of high-quality, tempered steel types with optimised heat treatment
Thin-walled bearing bushes with optimised bushing base rigidity are used for maintenance-free swing bearings.

Precision Turned Parts

Our powerful and modern systems include a complete set of CNC automated turning machines, allowing us to produce turned part batches in medium to large series of several million pieces per year.
Our precision turned parts are subject to particularly narrow fault tolerances and strict monitoring of the production process guarantees a high fitting accuracy within each component group; this ensures the low-wear operation of your system and increases the service life of all components.
We can offer you all common heat treatments and surface finishes. Some of these are carried out by our close partners who specialise in these services.
Precision turned parts by GEWES are mainly produced for the following sectors:
Automotive and commercial vehicle construction
Drive technology
General mechanical engineering
Electrical industry and e-mobility
Hydraulics and pneumatics
