Our patented closure methods provide positive sealing of the joints and the mechanism to control the preloading of the assemblies.  This eliminates excessive play during operation and provides a joint with less than .006” axial deflection with smooth operation with low rotational torque values.  We offer patented dust boot designs with burpable flaps which allow dirty grease to pass out of the joint, while keeping contamination out.
