Clamping Shaft Collars

All EPT shaft collars, including quick-clamping collars, are one point faced to make sure perpendicularity and proper alignment. This critical manufacturing stage assures specific shaft collar face to bore relationship resulting in correct part positioning on the shaft and also pressure on interfaced ingredients.
Quick-clamping shaft collars from EPT are made of high quality aluminium with type-II sulfuric anodized finishes, with a dark finish on the collar and a gold finish in the clamping lever for added visibility. Lightweight aluminum collars are corrosion tolerant, lighter than other metals, have low inertia and have non-magnetic properties. All EPT products are RoHS and REACH compliant. Available typical sizes for the quick-clamping shaft collars are 0.375” to at least one 1.5” in the inches series and 8 mm to 38 mm in the metric series.
This EPT two-piece clamping shaft collar is constructed of black oxide steel. It is a two-piece clamping shaft collar for applications requiring a stronger holding power and larger axial load potential than Clamping Shaft Collars setscrew or one-part clamping collars. The two-piece design separates into two halves, allowing installation or repositioning anywhere on the shaft without disturbing existing pieces. It accommodates a greater variety of shaft diameters than setscrew collars and is effective on both hard and very soft shafts. It is made of steel for weldability and rust resistance with a dark-colored oxide complete for a attractive appearance and level of resistance to white corrosion, chipping and flaking, and stick-slide of the screw during torqueing, enhancing the collar’s grasp on the shaft. Black oxide also provides slight corrosion resistance and improved lubricity. This collar comes with forged socket-head cap screws for securing the collar onto the shaft. The working temperatures for this collar range between -40 to 176 degrees C (-40 to 350 degrees F). This shaft collar is ideal for use in a variety of applications, which includes in the vehicle industry to situate pieces in automobile power steering assemblies, the production industry to locate pieces on a conveyor belt program, and the hobby craft sector to hold wheels on axles in remote control vehicles, among others.
Allows assembly / disassembly on / off the shaft with no need to remove other ancillary factors. Clamps firmly set up when tightened to the shaft. Perfect for positioning elements such as for example bearings or sprockets onto shafts.
The positioning is easily adjusted when fitted onto a shaft. Clamps firmly set up when tightened to the shaft. Ideal for positioning parts such as bearings or sprockets onto shafts.
The twice split shaft collar made of steel browned (clamp collar) is easy to attach. The shaft collars usually do not harm the shaft. They are also insensitive to exterior forces and vibrations and distribute the keeping forces evenly over the entire shaft circumference.
Clamp-style and placed screw shaft collars from Grainger can be indispensable to power transmission. They can carry bearings and sprockets on shafts, situate parts in engine and gearbox assemblies and provide as mechanical stops. A two-part clamping shaft collar can simply wrap around a difficult or soft shaft without marring. Set screw collars work with a cup level socket set screw to lock onto a gentle or predrilled shaft.

The collar clamping mechanism works quickly and effectively with simple side 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 design of the cam on the lever and the mating machined surface area on the collar assure a tight fit with a maximum axial load of 35 to 120 lbs / 133 to 489 N depending on the collar bore size. In scenarios where higher holding power is usually or clamp axial load is required, the quick-clamping collar is not the recommended decision. EPT offers a accomplish type of industry-leading one-part and two-piece shaft collars created for these applications.
