Universal Couplings, also known as U Joints or Cardan Joints, comprise a rigid construction with a pair of hinges, allowing a pair of shafts to operate under angular misalignment.
Due to their design, angled Universal Couplings do not transmit rotary motion at a constant velocity. Even when an input speed is constant, output speed oscillates in a sinusoidal rhythm. Because of this, Universal Couplings are commonly found in pairs to reverse this effect.
