Drive Shaft（Transmission Shaft） Structure and Application for Different Vehicles
The drive shaft is a rotating body with a high rotational speed and little support, so its dynamic balance is crucial. In general, the driveshaft must be balanced before the delivery and adjusted on the balancer. For a front-engine rear-wheel-drive vehicle, it is the shaft that transmits the transmission's rotation to the final drive. It can be several knots, and the joints can be connected by joints.
The transmission shaft is an important part of the power transmission in the automotive powertrain. Its role is to transmit the power of the engine to the wheels together with the transmission and the drive axle, so that the vehicle can generate driving force.
The drive shafts of special purpose vehicles are mainly used in tankers, refueling vehicles, sprinklers, sewage suction trucks, suction trucks, fire engines, high pressure cleaning vehicles, road wreckers, aerial vehicles, and garbage trucks.
The transmission shaft is composed of a shaft tube, a telescopic sleeve and a universal joint. The telescopic sleeve automatically adjusts the distance between the transmission and the transaxle. The universal joint is to ensure the change of the angle between the two axes of the output shaft of the transmission and the input shaft of the drive axle, and to realize the two-axis isokinetic speed transmission !
