Cardan driveshafts are able to handle large misalignments. By keeping both joint angles equal and aligning the yokes, contstant output velocity is achieved. Most driveshafts use a spline for length compensation, making installation easier.
Constant velocity driveshafts provide true constant velocity of the input, intermediate, and output shafts. CV driveshafts aren’t prone to the angular accelerations or vibrations that can be generated by cardan driveshafts.
Universal joints are able to transfer torque over a larger misalignment than other flexible couplings. Single joint, double joint, and telescoping shafts are available to fit your application.
