Ball joints and homokinetic joints
The Hagenbuch ball joints were originally developed for Hexamove applications. However, they can be used in all applications that require a flexible connection. Ball joints offer the advantage of being able to transfer strong forces despite their relatively small dimensions (compact design). They are also suitable for applications with high-frequency pulsations.
Hagenbuch ball joints come in three different types
|Basic version||The standard version allows movement in three degrees of freedom: pivoting on two sides and rotation around the longitudinal axis.|
|With anti-twist device||The ball joints have a simple internal anti-twist device. As a result, the joint no longer rotates around the central axis. Only pivoting movements are possible. This version can be used, e.g. to prevent rotation of a cylinder, but it is not suitable for transmission of high torques.|
|Homokinetic joint||High-end ball joint with integrated anti-twist device. As a result, the joint no longer rotates around the central axis. Only pivoting movements are possible. This version is suitable for transmission of relativeley high torques.|
