Flexible Shaft

Also known as “Flexible Shaft (FS)”

Features:

  • For rotating mechanisms, this product is pliable, yet efficiently transmits torque through the shaft by adhesively coiling incrementally thicker steel or piano wire rods around a central rod in alternating directions (see figure). Hollow type is also available. It does not uncoil from backlash when machine is turned off. Production will be scheduled after receiving order.

 

Applications:

  • Surgical drills and equipment that requires flexible connections.

 

Materials:

  • Piano wire, Hard Steel wire, SUS304

 

Minimum bending radius in use:

  • Min. bending R≦20 x Outer Diameter (approx.)
  • Standard wire rod diameters (mm): 0.12, 0.15, 0.18, 0.2 (SUS Steel Wire); 0.3, 0.35, 0.4, 0.6, 0.7, 0.8, 1.0, 1.2, 1.4, 1.6, 1.8, 2.0, 2.3, 2.6, 3.2 (Hard Steel Wire & SUS wire)
