ELLIOTT FLEXIBLE SHAFTS ARE DESIGNED TO TRANSMIT POWER OR ROTARY MOTION THROUGH A CURVED PATH, EITHER BETWEEN FIXED SHAFTS OR SHAFTS HAVING RELATIVE MOTION
They can overcome problems of misalignment, absorb and isolate vibration, and simplify power transmission designs and applications. Elliott Flexible Shafts can easily withstand the shock of sudden load changes due to starting and stopping. They will effectively and reliably transmit power to a driven element that must move during operation, even around corners or into machines while allowing for a high degree of freedom in the location of drive sources, whether mechanical, such as electric motors or manual.
Using Flexible Shafts to solve complex drive problems can reduce design time, lower initial assembly and maintenance cost safely without the use of exposed universal joints, gears, pulleys or couplings.
