Clamping Shaft Collars

All EPT shaft collars, including quick-clamping collars, are one point faced to ensure perpendicularity and proper alignment. This critical manufacturing step assures precise shaft collar facial area to bore relationship resulting in correct aspect positioning on the shaft and possibly pressure on interfaced components.
Quick-clamping shaft collars from EPT are manufactured from high quality metal with type-II sulfuric anodized finishes, with a dark-colored finish on the collar and a gold finish on the clamping lever for added visibility. Metal collars are corrosion tolerant, lighter than different metals, possess low inertia and have non-magnetic properties. All EPT goods are RoHS and REACH compliant. Available standard sizes for the quick-clamping shaft collars happen to be 0.375” to 1 1.5” in the in . Clamping Shaft Collars series and 8 mm to 38 mm in the metric series.
This EPT two-piece clamping shaft collar is made of black oxide steel. It is a two-part clamping shaft collar for applications needing a more powerful holding power and larger axial load potential than setscrew or one-piece clamping collars. The two-piece style separates into two halves, allowing set up or repositioning everywhere on the shaft without disturbing existing components. It accommodates a greater variety of shaft diameters than setscrew collars and is effective on both hard and delicate shafts. It is made of steel for weldability and rust level of resistance with a dark oxide end for a ornamental appearance and level of resistance to white-colored corrosion, chipping and flaking, and stick-slip of the screw during torqueing, improving the collar’s hold on the shaft. Dark oxide also provides gentle corrosion resistance and increased lubricity. This collar includes forged socket-mind cap screws for securing the collar onto the shaft. The functioning temperatures for this collar range from -40 to 176 degrees C (-40 to 350 degrees F). This shaft collar is well suited for use in various applications, which include in the automobile industry to situate parts in automobile electric power steering assemblies, the production 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 and off the shaft with no need to remove other ancillary parts. Clamps firmly in place once tightened to the shaft. Perfect for positioning parts such as for example bearings or sprockets onto shafts.
The positioning is easily adjusted when fitted onto a shaft. Clamps firmly in place once tightened to the shaft. Perfect for positioning elements such as bearings or sprockets onto shafts.
The dual split shaft collar manufactured from steel browned (clamp collar) is easy to attach. The shaft collars do not destruction the shaft. They are also insensitive to exterior forces and vibrations and distribute the holding forces evenly over the whole shaft circumference.
Clamp-style and establish screw shaft collars from Grainger can be indispensable to power transmission. They can hold bearings and sprockets on shafts, situate elements in engine and gearbox assemblies and serve as mechanical stops. A two-piece clamping shaft collar can certainly wrap around a difficult or delicate shaft without marring. Established screw collars apply a cup level socket establish screw to lock onto a soft or predrilled shaft.

The collar clamping mechanism works fast and proficiently with simple side opening of the integral clamping lever, positioning the collar on the shaft, and closing the lever flush with the external surface area of the collar. The design of the cam on the lever and the mating machined surface area on the collar assure a tight fit with a optimum axial load of 35 to 120 lbs / 133 to 489 N based on the collar bore size. In scenarios where higher holding ability is normally or clamp axial load is necessary, the quick-clamping collar is not the recommended decision. EPT offers a total line of industry-leading one-part and two-part shaft collars designed for these applications.
