Eco-Design Approach for the Tripode Type Coupling

  • M. Lates
  • A. Jula


The paper provides some aspects regarding the principles of eco-design for the machine elements in particular for the tripod type couplings. First, aspects regarding the eco-design principles are presented for the case of machine elements in general and as an application the case of a tripod coupling used in transversal transmission of passenger cars.
