It can be difficult for technicians to keep tools and reels secured on smooth shafts. That’s the major reason designers at Amacoil, Aston. Pa., designed EasyLock shaft collars. They hold items on shafts and install quickly without special tools on smooth, case-hardened (Rockwell 55 or higher) shafts.
The collar’s holding force can be manually adjusted from 90 to 1,124 lb. And a quick-release feature makes frequent changeovers easy, which reduces downtime.
The maintenance-free collars are available for shafts with diameters of 10 to 40 mm. English sizes can be specially ordered.
