A universal joint (U-joint) is a joint that transmits rotary motion between two shafts that are not positioned in a straight line, and allows each shaft to ‘bend’ in any direction. The U-joints are a key component in shafts that transmit rotary motion on aircrafts and helicopters.
Ashot innovate a highly sophisticated, patent-pending Booted U Joint, which our R&D team has developed as a new solution that addresses common high lift system failures in existing U Joint systems.
Ashot is a sole supplier of joints to several aircrafts. Ashot specializes in manufacturing different types of joints, such as:
- Booted U-joint (Patent pending)
- Plunging joints
- Diaphragm couplings
- Steady bearing joints
- Articulating joints
