Shaft collars

Ruland Manufacturing has announced the introduction of a series of one-piece and two-piece clamp-style shaft collars that feature inch or metric bores, DIN 12.9 socket-headed cap screws, and high-grade materials and finishes.

"The use of metric screws with inch bores is especially useful when either retrofitting or designing equipment with inch shafts for worldwide use", says Ruland's vice-president of sales Robert Watkins. The 'International' series is available from Ruland - a US-based company represented in the United Kingdom by Lenze - in high-grade aluminium with an anodised finish and stainless steel screws, lead-free carbon steel, stainless steel, and engineered plastic.

Bore sizes range from 3mm to 150mm."The collars are manufactured with close attention to the face-to-bore relationship, ensuring good alignment and a functional interface for some bearings", says Robert Watkins.
