Design and analysis of Three Pin Constant Velocity Joint for Parallel and Angular Power Transmission

Authors(2) :-Ruchira Mahajan, Prof. R. S. Shelke

The basic role of couplings is to join two parts of rotating elements while permitting some degree of misalignment or end movement or both. by cautious selection, establishment and support of couplings, generous reserve funds can be made in decreased maintenance cost and downtime. Presently Oldham’s coupling and Universal joints are used for parallel offset power transmission and angular offset transmission. These joints have limitations on maximum offset distance ,angle & speed and result in vibrations and low efficiency (below 70%). The three pin constant velocity joint is an alteration in design that offers upto 18 mm parallel offset and 21 degree angular offset ,at high speeds upto 2000 or 2500 rpm at 90% efficiency. This design lowers cost of production, space requirement and simply technology of manufacture as compared to present CVJ in market.
