The modern universal joint is a mechanical device making it possible for one or more shafts to be linked together. This, then, allows for the transmission of torque and rotary motion. It also makes it possible to transmit power between two points that aren’t in line with each other. Universal joints also come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes and configurations in an effort to accommodate the unlimited number of applications they are used in.

The CV joints in your vehicle are one of the most important parts that keep you moving forward – therefore it is very important to know when your car needs a CV joint repair.
The CV axles is a modern version of the traditional drivetrain. Their purpose is to transfer power from the transmission to your wheels, which turns and makes your car drive forward. These CV axles contain a flexible joint, the CV joint, which allow for flexibility of the axle, allowing it to move according to the road conditions under the tyres.

Because the joints take so much strain, it is important to get a CV joint repair done from time to time.

Here’s what to look out for:
Noises When Turning – One of the most popular signs of a damaged CV joint, is a very loud clicking noise that occurs when you turn the vehicle. These noises will increase in volume and is a sign that you need a CV joint repair.

Grease on Your Tyres – Once the rubber on the CV joint starts wearing off, it will start leaking grease. As you drive around and go around corners, some of this grease will end up on your tyres. Once the grease runs out, dirt and dust will collect on the joint, causing further damage. Best practice is to get this fixed before it reaches that point.

Vibration When Driving – All cars vibrate when they drive, and the vibration gets worse if you go faster. Having said that, if the vibration becomes excessive, it might be a sign that you need a CV joint repair.

CV joints often get damaged in such a way that their balance is upset, which then causes the extra vibration on your vehicle. Naturally, a car that vibrates too much will not handle as it should and can negatively affect the safety of you and your passengers.

If you notice any of these signs on your vehicle, take your car to your nearest CV joint repair specialists and they will be able to identify the problem.

Modern driveshaft parts are mechanical components used for transmitting torque and rotation. This part is usually used to connect other components of a drive train that can’t be connected directly due to distance, or the need to allow for relative motion between them. In order to allow for variations in the alignment and distance between the driving and driven components, driveshafts also frequently incorporate one more more universal joint, jaw coupling or rag joint.

These days, many new possibilities exist for the production process of driveshaft parts. One process in particular, the filament winding production process, continues to gain great popularity. Numerous companies in the automotive industry continue to look to adopt this knowledge for their high volume production process.

The filament winding process is a fabrication technique mainly used for the manufacturing of open cylinders, or closed end structures, and involves winding filaments under tension over a rotating mandrel. Pressure vessels, pipes as well as driveshafts are all manufactured using the filament winding process.
