What are Flexible Drive Shafts?

Flexible Drives can replace universal joints, gears, pulleys or chain drives and more.

They are used to transmit rotary power and movement from a fixed motor or gearbox to remote, isolated or misaligned devices. With agricultural, food, marine, automotive, construction, industrial cleaning and bespoke design applications, your next design could benefit from the enhancements of flexible drive technology

Flexible shafts replace rigid shafts, eliminating alignment problems and efficiency losses. They also allow greater freedom of design and are lighter with lower installation costs.
