New Products: Adjustable Shaft Collars Won’t Slip

EasyLock shaft collars install quickly without special tools. The holding force can be manually adjusted from 90 to 1,124 lb to ensure a nonslip grip for tools and reels on smooth, case hardened (Rockwell 55 or higher) shafts. Applications include securing tools, reels and other objects on shafts in packaging and converting machinery, stretch-wrap, and other roll-fed equipment, and in static procedures such as holding down mounting plates and machine covers. Starting and braking moments are effectively transmitted from shaft to reel, permitting rapid start-up/shut down without rotational play of the spool on the shaft; spool and shaft start and stop together. A quick-release facilitates frequent changeovers to help reduce downtime.

EasyLock shaft collars come in eight sizes for shafts with metric diameters of 10 to 40 mm. English sizes are available by special order and subject to a minimum order quantity of 50 units. The quick release feature is not available on the 35 and 40 mm sizes which instead use a thumbscrew release control.
