Lovejoy’s universal joints can be used in angular and parallel misalignment applications where the misalignment is greater than what most flexible couplings can handle. The company’s standard D Type provides up to 25 degrees of angular misalignment, while the DD Type allows for angular and larger amounts of parallel offset, due to its double u-joint configuration. The heavy-duty, long-life HD Type features induction-hardened yokes in the assembly. Needle bearings are used in the NB Type to compensate for applications requiring speeds up to 6,000 rpm. The LOJ and JR-4 Types allow up to 45 degrees of angular misalignment in hand-crank type applications.
