Consider Using a Flexible Shaft-Image

A flexible shaft transmits rotary motion much like a solid steel shaft, but it can be routed over, under, and around obstacles that would make using a solid shaft impractical.  A flexible shaft is a highly effective means of transmitting rotary motion and is more efficient than universal joints, gears, sprockets and chains, or belts and pulleys. It is typically lower in cost than these other devices and offers the added benefit of compensating for misalignments in your system that can greatly reduce cost and assembly time. At S.S. White we specialize in many industries such as: Aerospace, Medical, Industrial and Automotive. To learn more about us please visit our website.
