Curtis standard block and pin universal joints are stocked in 14 O.D. sizes (3/8″ to 4″ diameter), two material grades (4140 alloy steel and 303 stainless steel) and three hub configurations (solid, bored and bored with keyway and set screw holes).
Curtis double universal joints are stocked in the same O.D. sizes, materials and configurations as our single ujoints. Both single and double universal joints (7/8″ to 4″ O.D.) have the Curtis take apart feature allowing the joints to be easily disassembled.
Curtis specializes in one of a kind custom fixed length and variable length telescoping universal joint assemblies made from a variety of materials. If your need is for a custom assembly contact Curtis to speak with our engineering design staff today.
If your application requires a universal joint that can operate at high speeds for extended periods of time, we recommend the use of needle bearing type joints. Curtis can provide a wide range of needle bearing joints machined to your individual requirements.
Curtis can now provide cross and bearing universal joints to high volume users. These joints are commonly used in all terrain and utility vehicles, golf carts, agricultural steering linkages and many other commercial and industrial settings.
