Ruland quick clamping shaft collars require no tools for installation, adjustment or removal, and are used for packaging equipment and applications.

Ruland offers two types of quick clamping shaft collars: collars with cam levers and collars with clamping levers. Quick clamping shaft collars with cam lever have an integral lever that sits flush with the outside diameter and is finger actuated.

Collars with clamping lever feature a shaft collar combined with an adjustable clamping lever that replaces standard hardware. They have the benefits of traditional Ruland shaft collars such as not marring the shaft, tight controlled face-to-bore perpendicularity (TIR of ≤ .002 inch or 0.05 mm), and a fine burr-free finish.

Quick clamping shaft collars with cam levers are manufactured from 6061 anodized aluminum bodies and 6063 aluminum handles with bore sizes from ¼ inch to 3 inches and 6 mm to 75 mm. Quick clamping shaft collars with clamping levers are offered in standard materials including 1215 lead-free steel with black oxide or zinc plated finish, 303 and 316 stainless steel, high strength 2024 aluminum, and engineered plastic.
