  • Publication number: 20030083134
    Abstract: A flexible coupling for connecting two objects together, the coupling has a first member, a second member, a bearing, and one or more torsion resistant mechanisms. The members each are constructed and arranged to engage the bearing, such that, at least one of the members may pivot around the bearing, with respect to the other member, thereby allowing at least one of the members to be moveably engaged with the bearing. The torsion resistant mechanisms are constructed and arranged to resist the transmission of a torsional load, applied to one of the members, to the other member. One or more of the torsion resistant mechanisms may also be constructed and arranged to reduce vibrational forces applied to the device.

  • Patent number: 5468188
    Abstract: A joint for connecting a first drive shaft to a second drive shaft includes a ball and socket arrangement connecting the two shafts and a spring attached at one end to one shaft and at the other end to the other shaft. The spring is made of a polymer matrix containing fibers made from poly(p-phenylene terephthalamide) resin. The fibers extend through the polymer matrix along the helical axis of the spring. The spring is disposed about the ball and socket arrangement so that shock loads are absorbed by the spring.
