Description Fully automatic universal joint assembly (forks, cross, needle bearing) incl. bending moment test. Universal joints connect two non-aligned shafts and are used in the automotive sector for steering linkage and drive trains. Development of a prestressing and press-in device (forces up to 50 kN) with force-displacement monitoring, as well as a bending moment test for complete downstream quality control. Development modules integrated in a fully automatic rotary table machine.
