Guido Broder, Michael Boehm

The article "Flexible Options with Flexible Shafts" appeared in the August 2013 issue of Power Transmission Engineering.

Summary
You need to transmit a rotary motion where no straight line is possible. Or, you need to allow for some uncontrollable misalignment. How about transmission taking place between moving components? What if you need to control something in hazardous locations where you cannot directly handle the application, such as high-temperature environments, under hazardous conditions or in clean room applications? Functionally designed flexible shafts can meet all these challenges.
