Quick clamping shaft collars are now available with bore dimensions from 1/4” to 3” and 6mm to 75mm. Ruland manufactures quick clamping shaft collars from domestically sourced 6061 aluminum for light weight and low inertia. A standard black anodized finish adds corrosion resistance while stainless steel hardware makes it suitable for wash-down applications and clean environments.
Quick clamping shaft collars are designed to deliver
speed and flexibility while reducing down time. Installation is as easy as sliding the collar into place and actuating the handle to the closed position by hand without the need for tools. The handle sits flush with the outside diameter when fully installed, making quick clamping shaft collars suitable for rotating and stationary applications alike. They have easy finger access to the handle that allows them to be removed or positioned, using only the strength of the finger.
Ruland's original design features a tension-adjustment screw which makes the collar compatible to wide shaft tolerances and to adjust the axial holding power on the shaft. Quick clamping shaft collars can be modified with mounting holes to allow them to face-mount other components to the shaft. A special double wide quick clamping shaft collar is also available by request for applications requiring a higher axial holding power or light duty shaft coupling.
Quick clamping shaft collars are ideal for light duty or low-rpm applications where repositioning, process tuning and material changeovers can be effortlessly made, improving operator and machine efficiency. These shaft collars can be used to position rolls of media, adjust guide rails, locate components, or perform quick alterations.
