the HD will normally provide twice the life of a standard industrial-type universal joint D303 Stainless D type universal joints are available in stainless steel when contact with a corrosive atmosphere or sanitation requirements are a factor. low torque drives. free movement of the joint. LOJ TYPE DD and DDX Types UJ Designed with two Lovejoy standard D type universal joints and a center connecting shaft.Universal Joints Overview Lovejoy Pin & Block and Needle Bearing Industrial U-Joints Lovejoy has been manufacturing industrial universal joints for over 45 years. yet allows full. this universal joint provides the reliability necessary for speeds up to 6000 RPM and angles up to 25°. Our industrial universal joint product line is well established and provides you with a wide range of standard and specialized products. the DD and DDX are tailored to your specific application requirements. D TYPE Features and Benefits ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Industry standard Stainless steel and needle bearing available 13 sizes Pin & Block design Boot retaining grooves standard HD TYPE D Type This standard industrial-type universal joint with pin & block design is ideal for applications up to 25° and speeds to 1750 RPM. Failure to follow the instructions and precautions can result in severe injury or death. MULTI-SPINDLE TYPE ! WARNING You must refer to page iv for Important Safety Instructions and Precautions for the selection and use of these products. HD Type D STAINLESS A high quality universal joint made to exacting tolerances. They are capable of operating angles to 45°. LOJ and JR-4 These economical universal joints with offset pin design are ideal for use on hand operated. and sealed needle bearings. The shape of the yoke is a special feature which results in exceptionally high strength. UJ-2 UNIVERSAL JOINT BOOT . Wear areas of the universal joint are protected from dirt and contaminants. Universal Joint Boots The life of a universal joint can be extended substantially if booted. They are used to connect drill head drives to the drill spindles. This accounts for the high horsepower capacity at high speeds. while lubrication is retained. DD AND DDX TYPE Multi-Spindle Type Multi-spindle universal joint assemblies consist of two quality HD universal joints mounted at opposite ends of a spring loaded shaft. NEEDLE BEARING TYPE Needle Bearing Type Designed with high quality. pre-lubricated.

The required universal joint size can be determined by establishing the point of intersection of the RPM x Working Angle figure on the horizontal scale and the service factor torque of on the vertical scale. D and HD types use one curve. Applications that fall outside the limitations of these tables should be referred to our technical design staff.
