Lead-free carbon steel shaft collars with RoHS-compliant yellow zinc plating are available from Ruland. The parts are plated using a compliant trivalent process, instead of the non-compliant hexavalent process. The plating offers good anti-corrosive properties, and the collars are less expensive than stainless steel alternatives. To meet specific requirements, the company also offers collars in type 303 stainless steel, type 316 stainless steel, aluminum, black oxide carbon steel and engineered plastic. Collars are available in one-and two-piece clamp-style designs with bore sizes from 1/8 in. to 6 in. and from 3 mm to 80 mm. Ruland Manufacturing
