prop shaft (drive shaft)

A drive shaft, propeller shaft (prop shaft), or Cardan shaft is a mechanical component for transmitting torque and rotation, usually used to connect other components of a drive train that cannot be connected directly.

Prop shafts have different bearing requirements. BTC Automotive specialises in prop shaft support bearings. Due to its location, the bearing must withstand various environmental forces. Optimised sealing and greasing are critical to sustain functionality in this application.
