Clamping Shaft Collars

All EPT shaft collars, including quick-clamping collars, are solitary point faced to ensure perpendicularity and proper alignment. This critical manufacturing step assures precise shaft collar experience to bore relationship leading to correct aspect positioning on the shaft and also pressure on interfaced components.
Quick-clamping shaft collars from EPT are made from high quality lightweight aluminum with type-II sulfuric anodized finishes, with a black finish on the collar and a precious metal finish about the clamping lever for added visibility. Aluminum collars are corrosion tolerant, lighter than other metals, possess low inertia and have nonmagnetic properties. All EPT goods are RoHS and REACH compliant. Available typical sizes for the quick-clamping shaft collars are 0.375” to 1 1.5” in the inch series and 8 mm to 38 mm in the metric series.
This EPT two-piece clamping shaft collar is made from black oxide steel. It is a two-piece clamping shaft collar for Clamping Shaft Collars applications requiring a better holding power and larger axial load potential than setscrew or one-piece clamping collars. The two-piece style separates into two halves, allowing unit installation or repositioning everywhere on the shaft without disturbing existing ingredients. It accommodates a greater variety of shaft diameters than setscrew collars and works well on both hard and very soft shafts. It is manufactured from steel for weldability and rust resistance with a dark-colored oxide surface finish for a ornamental appearance and level of resistance to white-colored corrosion, chipping and flaking, and stick-slip of the screw during torqueing, bettering the collar’s hold on the shaft. Dark oxide also provides slight corrosion resistance and better lubricity. This collar includes forged socket-head cap screws for securing the collar onto the shaft. The operating temperatures for this collar range between -40 to 176 degrees C (-40 to 350 degrees F). This shaft collar is suitable for use in various applications, which includes in the vehicle industry to situate elements in automobile electricity steering assemblies, the making industry to locate parts on a conveyor belt system, and the hobby craft sector to hold wheels on axles in handy remote control vehicles, among others.
Allows assembly / disassembly on / off the shaft without the need to eliminate other ancillary factors. Clamps firmly set up once tightened to the shaft. Perfect for positioning parts such as bearings or sprockets onto shafts.
The positioning is easily adjusted when fitted onto a shaft. Clamps firmly set up once tightened to the shaft. Perfect for positioning components such as for example bearings or sprockets onto shafts.
The double split shaft collar made of steel browned (clamp collar) is simple to attach. The shaft collars usually do not harm the shaft. Also, they are insensitive to exterior forces and vibrations and distribute the holding forces evenly over the complete shaft circumference.
Clamp-style and establish screw shaft collars from Grainger can be indispensable to power transmission. They are able to hold bearings and sprockets on shafts, situate parts in electric motor and gearbox assemblies and provide as mechanical stops. A two-part clamping shaft collar can easily wrap around a difficult or gentle shaft without marring. Set screw collars use a cup level socket placed screw to lock onto a smooth or predrilled shaft.

The collar clamping mechanism works quickly and effectively with simple palm opening of the integral clamping lever, positioning the collar on the shaft, and closing the lever flush with the outer area of the collar. The look of the cam on the lever and the mating machined surface on the collar assure a tight fit with a optimum axial load of 35 to 120 lbs / 133 to 489 N depending on the collar bore size. In circumstances where higher holding electricity can be or clamp axial load is required, the quick-clamping collar is not the recommended decision. EPT offers a accomplish line of industry-leading one-part and two-part shaft collars created for these applications.
