Locking collar aids shaft adjustment

Equipment with rotating shafts often requires adjustment of the shaft end float or position of its mounted parts – from actuating arms to gear wheels, cams or readout indicators.

This can now be achieved quickly and easily without tools, using Elesa's new cam lever locking set collar in black anodised aluminium.

Elesa's GN704 offers a slim profile which allows for optimal use of space on the shaft and these quick release set collars from 38mm to 75mm dia. also feature an adjustable cam action lock in yellow anodized aluminium which closes flush to the body of the collar. The cam action provides the required locking force without the use of thrust bolts or clamping screws. This is a much faster process and because the design enables use of aluminium there is significantly less added mass with consequent operational benefits. The GN702 is available to suit 8mm, 20mm and 32mm shafts.
