About Car Propeller Shaft

Propeller shaft are used differently in different vehicles, with different configurations for front-wheel drive, four-wheel drive, and front-engine rear-wheel drive in cars. The propeller shaft are also used in vehicles like motorcycles, locomotives, and marine ships.

The propeller shaft is used to transfer torque between components that cannot be connected directly because of distance or the need to allow relative motion between them.Propeller Shaft is mainly composed of U-joint, Tube, Centre bearing, Midship shaft, End yoke, Slip yoke and Tube yoke, Flanges main components.


A universal joint (U-joint) is a mechanical joint used to connect rotating shafts. Nowadays, the driveshaft and universal joints are mostly seen on rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive vehicles.


A tube is a part of a drive shaft, It is often used in front engine and rear drive automobiles. The purpose of using a tube is to keep the rear end in place during acceleration and braking.

Centre Bearing

Centre bearing is used to connect the two sections of the drive shaft. These bearings are meant to keep both parts of the driveshaft solid to reduce harmonic vibrations when the vehicle is accelerating.

Midship Shaft and End Yoke

Midship shafts are part of a drive shaft that is attached to the frame on a center bearing.An end yoke is used for accuracy and durability. The benefit of using an end yoke is to help reduce noise and vibration to keep your driveline running easily.

Slip Yoke and Tube Yoke

A slip yoke is attached to the driveshaft itself using a universal joint. The slip yoke is fitted to transfer power by sliding in and out of the transfer case. The tube yoke is also necessary to allow the U-joints to rotate well with the drive shaft.


Flanges are used for automotive purposes to connect the driveshaft to the transmission, transfer case, and differential. Also used to connect driveshafts to power take-offs, hydraulic pumps, and a variety of accessories.

Functions of the Propeller Shaft

Propeller shaft or Cardan shaft is a mechanical component of transmission for transmitting torque and rotation. Propeller shaft consist of one or several cardan shafts or cardan hinges. It usually used to connect other components of a drive train that cannot be connected directly because of distance between them.

Applications of Propeller shafts

  • The propeller shafts use in different heavy-duty machines.
  • They are utilized for various constructional motor vehicles.
  • They also use in commercial cars.
  • The propeller shafts was also used in earlier airplanes.
  • They also use in ships.

Years of experience

Exporting country

Used for automobiles between the motor and the axles with a limited distance The frictional welding at the junction helps increase the strength, efficiency and reliability of the propeller shaft junction.


– Single piece style propeller shaft

Used as a part of automobiles with a long distance from engine to axle, and four-wheel-drive Front engine. The splitting in two or three portions of the propeller shaft allows the crucial number of revolutions to be decreased so as to avoid the vibratory problem if the total shaft length is increased.


– Propeller shaft of 2 portion / 3 portion
