Universal propshaft

INA's deep-drawn bearings used as bearing supports in the universal joints transmit the power through the driveshaft. Staked retention is an efficient method developed by INA that allows the universal joints to be mounted axially and without clearance. This leads to excellent symmetries and, therefore, a reduction in vibrations and running noise.

IPH (the INA stake retention method), for example, enables a spider to be guided without axial clearance and without any additional safety components. All with unrivaled cost-effectiveness! We can also supply a complete assembly machine at your request.
