  • One-piece clamping shaft collar for applications requiring a more uniform holding power and higher axial load capacity than setscrew collars
  • Quick-clamping collar design for making frequent adjustments without tools
  • Aluminum with an anodized finish for greater corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and surface hardness than plain aluminum
  • Includes an aluminum lever handle with a gold anodized finish for quick installation and release of the collar
  • Operating temperatures range from -40 to 93 degrees C (-40 to 200 degrees F)

Product Description

This Ruland one-piece clamping shaft collar has a quick-clamping design and is made of anodized aluminum. It is a one-piece clamping shaft collar for applications requiring a more uniform holding power and higher axial load capacity than setscrew collars. It is easier to remove and reposition than setscrew collars and is effective on both hard and soft shafts. This collar has a quick-clamping design for making frequent adjustments using a lever handle instead of tools. It is suitable for applications that require quick alterations and process tuning such as adjusting guide rails or locating components. It is made of aluminum with an anodized finish that increases the metal's wear and corrosion resistant properties and improves its surface hardness, holding power, and appearance. This collar comes with an aluminum lever handle with a gold anodized finish for quick installation and release of the collar. The operating temperatures for this collar range from -40 to 93 degrees C (-40 to 200 degrees F). This shaft collar is suitable for use in various applications, including in the automotive industry to situate components in automobile power steering assemblies, the manufacturing industry to locate components on a conveyor belt system, and the hobby craft industry to hold wheels on axles in remote control vehicles, among others.

Shaft collars are ring-shaped devices primarily used to secure components onto shafts. They also serve as locators, mechanical stops, and spacers between other components. The two basic types of shaft collars are clamping (or split) collars, which come in one- or two-piece designs, 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 directly 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-piece clamping collars must be installed by sliding the collar over the end of the shaft, while two-piece clamping collars separate into two halves and can be installed between components on the shaft. Shaft collars are made from a wide range of materials including zinc-plated steel, aluminum, nylon, and neoprene. Found in nearly every type of machinery and industry, shaft collars are used in applications including gearbox assemblies, motor bases, machine tools, drive shafts, agricultural implements, medical equipment, and paper and steel mill equipment, among others.

Ruland manufactures shaft collars, rigid couplings, and zero-backlash motion control couplings including beam couplings, bellows couplings, Oldham couplings, 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 Chemicals (REACH) standards.
