Constant velocity joints

IFA develops and produces expert solutions in series-production quality in collaboration with our clients. Depending on requirements, we offer a number of different types of CV joints.

 

In the automotive industry CV joints are used in sideshafts and propshafts. These homokinetic joints transfer the torques, allow the joint to bend and compensate for length changes resulting from the kinematics of the powertrain, if required. They have the advantage of transmitting rotation at any angle at constant speed, which means that the angular velocity of the output shaft is the same as that of the input shaft whatever the operating angle of the joint, as is the case with articulated u-joints.
