All EPT shaft collars, including quick-clamping collars, are solitary point faced to make sure perpendicularity and proper alignment. This critical manufacturing step assures specific shaft collar experience to bore relationship resulting in correct component positioning on the shaft and also pressure on interfaced elements.
Quick-clamping shaft collars from EPT are manufactured from high quality light weight aluminum with type-II sulfuric anodized finishes, with a dark-colored finish upon the collar and a gold finish on the clamping lever for added visibility. Aluminum collars are corrosion tolerant, lighter than different metals, have low inertia and also have nonmagnetic properties. All EPT items are RoHS and REACH compliant. Available regular sizes for the quick-clamping shaft collars will be 0.375” to 1 1.5” in the in . cast aluminium china series and 8 mm to 38 mm in the metric series.
This EPT two-piece clamping shaft collar is made of black oxide steel. This is a two-part clamping shaft collar for applications needing a better holding power and bigger axial load potential than setscrew or one-part clamping collars. The two-piece design separates into two halves, allowing set up or repositioning anywhere on the shaft without disturbing existing ingredients. It accommodates a larger variety of shaft diameters than setscrew collars and works well on both hard and soft shafts. It is manufactured from steel for weldability and rust level of resistance with a dark-colored oxide finish for a decorative appearance and resistance to white-colored corrosion, chipping and flaking, and stick-slide of the screw during torqueing, increasing the collar’s hold on the shaft. Dark-colored oxide also provides moderate corrosion resistance and increased 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 suited to use in a variety of applications, which includes in the motor vehicle industry to situate elements in automobile power steering assemblies, the making industry to locate pieces on a conveyor belt program, and the hobby craft sector to hold tires on axles in handy remote control vehicles, among others.
Allows assembly / disassembly on / off the shaft without the need to eliminate other ancillary factors. Clamps firmly in place once tightened to the shaft. Perfect for positioning components such as bearings or sprockets onto shafts.
The positioning is easily adjusted when fitted onto a shaft. Clamps firmly in place when tightened to the shaft. Ideal for positioning elements such as for example bearings or sprockets onto shafts.
The twice split shaft collar manufactured from steel browned (clamp collar) is simple to install. The shaft collars usually do not damage the shaft. Also, they are insensitive to external forces and vibrations and distribute the keeping forces evenly over the entire shaft circumference.
Clamp-style and established screw shaft collars from Grainger could be indispensable to power transmission. They are able to hold bearings and sprockets on shafts, situate components in engine and gearbox assemblies and provide as mechanical stops. A two-piece clamping shaft collar can easily wrap around a hard or very soft shaft without marring. Set screw collars employ a cup stage socket arranged screw to lock onto a very soft or predrilled shaft.

The collar clamping mechanism works fast and successfully with simple hand 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 on the collar assure a good fit with a maximum axial load of 35 to 120 lbs / 133 to 489 N based on the collar bore size. In situations where higher holding power is certainly or clamp axial load is necessary, the quick-clamping collar is not the recommended decision. EPT offers a comprehensive line of industry-leading one-part and two-piece shaft collars made for these applications.
