Ruland friction bearing universal joints are available in various sizes, styles, and materials. Components are manufactured to tight tolerances for accuracy, torque capabilities and durability.

Components are selectively heat-treated and ground for higher strength, giving them a precise and prolonged life. Single universal joints are suited for space-constrained applications with angular misalignment up to 45 degrees. Double universal joints are designed for applications with a wide distance between shafts or those in need of extreme angular misalignment accommodation up to 90 degrees.

The joints can be equipped with nitrile boot covers for abrasion and oil resistance. They are manufactured from alloy steel for high torque ability or stainless steel.
