Ruland offers two types of quick clamping shaft collars that require no tools to be adjusted: the quick clamping shaft collar with a cam lever and the shaft collar with a clamping lever. Both are ideal for applications that require frequent setup changes or adjustments such as those found in packaging and printing.
The quick clamping shaft collar with a cam lever features a cam lever that sits flush with the outside diameter, allowing the shaft collar to be precisely adjusted by hand. It is best suited for light duty or low RPM applications. These collars are made from aluminum with a black anodized finish and have stainless steel hardware. They do not mar the shaft and are indefinitely adjustable. Bore sizes on the quick-clamping shaft collars with a cam lever range from 1/4" to 3" and 6mm to 75mm.
The shaft collar with a clamping lever is a combination of Ruland one-piece shaft collars and flat handle adjustable clamping levers. The stainless steel threaded stud on the adjustable clamping lever is used in place of standard collar hardware. When combined, the two parts create a quick release shaft collar with a ratcheting handle. Once the lever is installed in the shaft collar, users simply turn the lever until they meet their desired torque. Bore sizes range from 3/8” to 1 ½” and 11mm to 40mm.
