We know universal joints, regardless of the application our team of experts can help you successfully select, design, build or repair your driveshaft assembly or system.
Driveline Service of Portland specializes in the design, manufacturing, and repair of universal joint driveshafts. In marine applications drive shafts are utilized in various areas such as waterjet propulsion, V-Drive propulsion, Z-Drive propulsion, Electric Motor propulsion, and barge pumps. These propulsion systems on vessels are mounted on soft mounts and move while under operation requiring driveshafts to take up that movement. The universal joint driveshaft is designed to operate either straight or at angles which offers the maximum range of placements or equipment for naval architects. In addition, the universal joint driveshaft also offers axial length compensation which allows for simpler installation inside the hull. DLS’s is the authorized distributor for GWB, Elbe, Gewes, and other European manufactures of cardan shaft components and carries stock to support all lead times.
