What is a flexible shaft?
A flexible shaft is a multitude of layers of wire stranded in one direction and then in the other. The flexible shaft transmits a torque, characterised in Nm.
In order to define the correct reference of flexible shafts, the following parameters must be defined:
- The torque to be transmitted
- The speed
- The preferred direction of rotation or is it both
- The length – (above 150 mm a metal sheath is necessary)
- The endurance cycles
- The environment
Flexible shafts are a simple solution for transmitting rotational force from one point to another in a winding configuration.
Lightweight, compact and robust, Codica’s flexible shafts are custom-made to your technical specifications. We offer co-design to achieve a working prototype.
As a complement to gearboxes and gearing devices, flexible shafts are ready to complete a motor.
