This EPT one-piece clamping shaft collar includes a quick-clamping design and is made of anodized aluminum. This is a one-piece clamping shaft collar for applications needing a more uniform holding electric power and higher axial load potential than setscrew collars. It is easier to remove and reposition than setscrew collars and works well on both hard and soft shafts. This collar has a quick-clamping design for making frequent adjustments using a lever handle rather than tools. It is well suited for applications that require quick alterations and procedure tuning such as for example adjusting guideline rails or locating pieces. It is made of lightweight aluminum with an anodized finish that increases the metal’s wear and corrosion resistant properties and increases its surface hardness, holding electrical power, and presence. This collar comes with an aluminum lever deal with with a precious metal anodized finish for speedy installation and relieve of the collar. The operating temperatures for this collar range between -40 to 93 degrees C (-40 to 200 degrees F). This shaft collar is suited to use in a variety of applications, including in the car industry to situate parts in automobile ability steering assemblies, the production industry to locate parts on a conveyor belt program, and the hobby craft sector to hold tires on axles in remote control vehicles, among others.
Shaft collars are ring-shaped devices mainly used to secure parts onto shafts. They also serve as locators, mechanical stops, and spacers between different components. The two basic types of shaft collars will be clamping (or split) collars, which come in one- or two-piece patterns, and setscrew collars. In both types, one or more screws hold the collars in place on the shaft. In setscrew collars, screws are tightened through the collar until they press straight against the shaft, and in clamping collars, screws are tightened to uniformly compress the collar around the shaft without impinging or marring it. Setscrew collars and one-part clamping collars must be set up by sliding the collar over the end of the shaft, while two-piece clamping collars distinct into two halves and may be installed between components on the shaft. Shaft collars are manufactured from a wide selection of materials including zinc-plated steel, aluminium, nylon, and neoprene. Found in nearly all sorts of machinery and market, shaft collars are being used in applications including gearbox assemblies, motor bases, machine tools, travel shafts, agricultural implements, medical gear, and paper and steel mill equipment, among others.
EPT manufactures shaft collars, rigid couplings, and zero-backlash movement control couplings including beam couplings, bellows couplings, Oldham couplings, Shaft Clamp china curved jaw couplings, and miniature disc couplings. The company, founded in 1937, and headquartered in Marlborough, MA, complies with Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemical substances (REACH) standards.

One of the simplest and therefore most overlooked pieces in the power transmission industry may be the shaft collar. However, the value of the shaft collar can be demonstrated through the widespread make use of these elements. Shaft collars are available in virtually any kind of equipment. They are being used by themselves for several applications, including mechanical stops, locating pieces and bearing faces, and are frequently accessories to various other elements to create assemblies for many types of power transmitting equipment which include motors and gearboxes.
