In 1958, Helical Products, an MW Industries company, invented the HELI-CAL® Flexure. The HELI-CAL® Flexure is the cylindrical helix for our HELI-CAL® product lines, developed from the observation that one piece, "flexured" flexible couplings offer maximum versatility in terms of form, function and reliability. The HELI-CAL® Flexure is a flexible helix (curved beam) machined from one piece of material into a specific configuration that incorporates special design requirements, performance features and/or characteristics. The adaptability of the HELI-CAL® Flexure has helped to solve thousands of mechanical misalignment and motion control problems.
Helical Products Company manufactures parts that provide a competitive edge combining simplicity of manufacture/assembly with durability and quality in a compact design at a reasonable cost for virtually any industry from military and aerospace to medical and energy. Helical Products is AS9100 certified, RoHS Compliant and ITAR registered.

A New Angle on U-Joints
The HELI-CAL® “Flexure” is an advanced and unique u-joint solution that generally exceeds the capabilities of common u-joint designs. A HELI-CAL® u-joint is really a flexure capable of over 5°of angular misalignment. It may accommodate up to 90° of angular misalignment in certain circumstances. This type of u-joint will also compensate for axial and parallel misalignment.
Generate Only Enhancement Program
As the old adage tells us, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link. While this bit of wisdom applies to a wide variety of situations, it rings particularly true for components in an engineered system. Each part has a role to play and an essential burden to bear. From medical machinery components to aerospace applications, one common weakness can create critical failure: EXCESSIVE RIGIDITY. A universal problem calls for a universal solution; one that provides essential flexibility for all of your precisely designed components. This solution is our proprietary Heli-Cal® Flexure technology, implemented through our unique Generate Only product enhancement program. Our Flexure helps prevent premature component wear, likelihood of damage, motor seizure, bearing failure, elimination of vibration failures, compensation for coefficient linear expansion, and many other benefits.
