Clamping Shaft Collars

All EPT shaft collars, including quick-clamping collars, are solo point faced to ensure perpendicularity and proper alignment. This critical manufacturing step assures specific shaft collar experience to bore relationship resulting in correct part positioning on the shaft and possibly pressure on interfaced components.
Quick-clamping shaft collars from EPT are made of high quality light weight aluminum with type-II sulfuric anodized finishes, with a dark finish upon the collar and a gold finish upon the clamping lever for added visibility. Aluminum collars are corrosion resistant, lighter than additional metals, possess low inertia and have non-magnetic properties. All EPT items will be RoHS and REACH compliant. Available common sizes for the quick-clamping shaft collars are 0.375” to at least one 1.5” in the in . series and 8 mm to 38 mm in the metric series.
This EPT two-piece clamping shaft collar is constructed of black oxide steel. This is a two-part clamping shaft collar for applications requiring a better holding power and larger axial load capability than setscrew or one-part clamping collars. The two-piece style separates into two halves, allowing set up or repositioning anywhere on the shaft without disturbing existing parts. It accommodates a greater selection of shaft diameters than setscrew collars and works well on both hard and soft shafts. It is manufactured from steel for weldability and rust level of resistance with a black oxide complete for a attractive appearance and resistance to white corrosion, chipping and flaking, and stick-slip of the screw during torqueing, increasing the collar’s hold on the shaft. Black oxide also provides slight corrosion resistance and much better lubricity. This collar comes with forged socket-brain cap screws for securing the collar onto the shaft. The operating temperatures because of this collar range between -40 to 176 degrees C (-40 to 350 degrees F). This shaft collar is well suited for use in a variety of applications, including in the vehicle industry to situate parts in automobile ability steering assemblies, the manufacturing industry to locate elements on a conveyor belt program, and the hobby craft industry to hold wheels on axles in remote control vehicles, among others.
Allows assembly / disassembly on / off the shaft with no need to eliminate other ancillary factors. Clamps firmly set up once tightened to the shaft. Ideal for positioning elements such as bearings or sprockets onto shafts.
The positioning is easily adjusted when fitted onto a shaft. Clamps firmly in place when tightened to the shaft. Perfect for positioning factors such as for example bearings or sprockets onto shafts.
The double split shaft collar manufactured from steel browned (clamp collar) is easy to install. The shaft collars usually do not harm the shaft. They are also insensitive to exterior forces and vibrations and distribute the possessing forces evenly over the complete shaft circumference.
Clamp-style and set screw shaft collars from Grainger could be indispensable to power transmission. They are able to maintain bearings and sprockets on shafts, situate parts in electric motor and gearbox assemblies and serve as mechanical stops. A two-piece clamping shaft collar can certainly wrap around a hard or very soft shaft without marring. Established screw collars employ a cup point socket placed screw to lock onto a very soft or predrilled shaft.

The collar clamping mechanism works quickly and successfully 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 look of the cam on the lever and the mating machined surface on the collar assure a good fit with a optimum axial load of 35 to 120 lbs / 133 to 489 N based on the collar bore size. In circumstances where higher holding electric power can be or clamp axial load is required, the quick-clamping collar is not the Clamping Shaft Collars recommended choice. EPT offers a accomplish line of industry-leading one-piece and two-piece shaft collars created for these applications.
