This EPT one-piece clamping shaft collar includes a quick-clamping design and is constructed of anodized aluminum. This is a one-piece clamping shaft collar for applications needing a more uniform holding power and higher axial load capability than setscrew collars. It is easier to take out and reposition than setscrew collars and works well on both hard and delicate shafts. This collar has a quick-clamping design for making frequent adjustments utilizing a lever handle rather than tools. It is suited to applications that require quick alterations and procedure tuning such as adjusting guideline rails or locating pieces. It is manufactured from light weight aluminum with an anodized finish that increases the metal’s wear and corrosion resistant properties and improves its area hardness, holding ability, and visual aspect. This collar comes with an aluminum lever cope with with a precious metal anodized finish for speedy installation and release of the collar. The operating temperatures because of this collar range from -40 to 93 degrees C (-40 to 200 degrees F). This shaft collar is well suited for use in a variety of applications, including in the auto industry to situate pieces in automobile electric power steering assemblies, the manufacturing industry to locate components on a conveyor belt system, and the hobby craft market to hold wheels on axles in Shaft Clamp remote control vehicles, among others.
Shaft collars happen to be ring-shaped devices mostly used to secure components onto shafts. In addition they provide as locators, mechanical stops, and spacers between other components. The two simple types of shaft collars are clamping (or split) collars, that can come in one- or two-piece patterns, and setscrew collars. In both types, one or more screws hold the collars in place on the shaft. In setscrew collars, screws happen to be tightened through the collar until they press straight against the shaft, and in clamping collars, screws are tightened to uniformly compress the collar around the shaft without impinging or marring it. Setscrew collars and one-part clamping collars must be set up by sliding the collar over the finish of the shaft, while two-piece clamping collars distinct into two halves and will be installed between pieces on the shaft. Shaft collars are made from a variety of materials including zinc-plated metal, metal, nylon, and neoprene. Found in nearly all sorts of machinery and market, shaft collars are being used in applications including gearbox assemblies, motor bases, equipment tools, travel shafts, agricultural implements, medical devices, and paper and metal mill equipment, among others.
EPT manufactures shaft collars, rigid couplings, and zero-backlash movement control couplings including beam couplings, bellows couplings, Oldham couplings, curved jaw couplings, and miniature disc couplings. The company, founded in 1937, and headquartered in Marlborough, MA, complies with Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) and Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals (REACH) standards.

Among the simplest and therefore most overlooked parts in the power transmission industry may be the shaft collar. However, the importance of the shaft collar is certainly demonstrated through the widespread use of these factors. Shaft collars can be found in virtually any kind of equipment. They are used by themselves for different applications, which include mechanical stops, locating elements and bearing faces, and are frequently accessories to various other components to create assemblies for most types of power transmission equipment including motors and gearboxes.
