Shaft-locking devices

Shaft-locking devices

Ameriloc MLD mechanical and HLD hydraulic are custom engineered locking devices.

Features & benefits

  • Faster installation; larger diameters, such as 20.8 in., enable HLD to be tensioned within minutes, compared to several hours for a mechanical locking device

  • A hydraulic pump, required for assembly, can be a stationary unit; a hydraulic hand pump may also be used for tensioning at difficult-to-reach places, such as wind turbines

  • MLD eliminates need for keyways or splines; provides unlimited shaft positioning; zero backlash, reduced shaft stress, and high contact pressure for greater torque

  • To 4,425,372 lb-ft, ODs to 57.1 in., and shaft diameters to 29.5 in.
