Angle Analysis

 

OPERATING ANGLES AND ANGLE ALIGNMENT

The vertical and/or horizontal offset between the drive and driven shafts is what creates driveline angles.
Correct operating angles are those angles at which the manufacture has designed the driveline to operate. These two angles are formed between the centerline of the shaft and the yokes to which it is connected. The operating angles must be in correct angle alignment in relationship to each other. This means that each operating angle must be at least one degree of the other unless a constant velocity joint is utilized.
