High Efficiency Compact Fixed Constant Velocity Universal Joints (EBJ) 1999-01-0748

Packaging constraints and environmental concerns have increased the demand for automotive components with reduced weight, better performance, and higher efficiency. To meet these demands, research and analysis of mechanisms, materials, and lubrication has led to the development of the next generation of constant velocity joints (CVJ) – the EBJ, a reduced weight, compact, high performance ball fixed constant velocity joint. This paper compares some of the features and functional test results of the EBJ and conventional Ball Fixed Joint (BJ) designs.
