Flexible drive shafts are small, durable, and extremely effective at transmitting rotary power from a small motor (where it needs to be) to where the motion is needed. Reliable and inexpensive flexible drive shafts avoid complicated (high-cost) gears, high tolerance alignments and can make difficult design situations possible.
Flexible drive shafts have a growing and compelling future in the automotive industry. Ongoing competitive challenges push suppliers to develop innovative and ever-more functional and efficient solutions. As important as changes in physical performance and outer design and style, automobiles also need equal or better interior improvements in function and comfort. Seat adjustments and other features controlled from the dashboard have made big contributions to the feel-good factor for new car owners. Flexible shafts are small, durable, and extremely effective at transmitting rotary power from a small motor (where it needs to be) to where the motion is needed. Reliable and inexpensive flexible shafts avoid complicated (high-cost) gears, high tolerance alignments and can make difficult design situations possible.
Flexible drive shafts, long known as speedometer cables, are not just doing the job in seat adjustments; today they are the solution in demanding head, ventilation, lighting adjustments, sunroof, or locking systems. In power seats, each movement requires a small electric motor. These motors, sometimes 8-per-seat, can’t always be placed exactly where needed. Using flexible drive shafts technology, motors are placed in the most practical place for the designer and transparent to passengers.
Consider also door locking systems where car designs no longer permit solid shaft connection between the keyhole and the lock. A flexible drive shafts has given designers more freedom to create attractive designs for new models. Experience and the right machinery, processes, and knowledge assure you the best flexible drive shafts solution for the next innovation in cars. Self-opening doors, sliding doors, new convertible concepts, foot pedal adjustments, and moveable back-up cameras are all projects in the pipeline for flexible drive shafts.
