Precision joints G/GD

Maximum permissible speed 1,000 rpm / Precision joint with plain bearing

Our precision joints are composed of a joint centre piece and two hubs that are connected by straps.

Bearing of the joint heads is made by plain bearings with precision joints type G and GD. The plain bearings type G and GD limit the maximum permissible speed to 1,000 rpm. The maximum diffraction angle of our cardan shafts per joint is 45°.

This bearing allows cardan shafts compared to other coupling types to compensate for significantly larger angular displacements. Double joints that have two bearings are able to offset radial displacement in addition.


  • Cardan shaft / precision joint acc. to DIN 808

  • Type G: Precision single joint with plain bearing (universal joint)

  • Type GD: Precision double joint with plain bearing

  • Max. diffraction angle = 45° per joint

  • Available with finish bore H7, with feather keyway, square bore or hexagon bore, if requested
