Quick-clamping shaft collars


August 22, 2011

Ruland has recently developed and manufactures quick-clamping shaft collars. These new shaft collars are designed with a low-profile integral clamping lever, in contrast to the typical approach of employing separate single or double tangential screws. The collars are suited for quick positioning adjustments in light duty stationary or low-rpm rotating shaft applications with frequent setup changes or adjustments, or in situations where the use of tools is not practical.
