WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 17, 2013) - Stafford Manufacturing Corp. has introduced an upgraded line of hinged shaft collars that now includes different bore styles with attached screws to simplify assembly in remote locations.
Stafford Hinged Shaft Collars feature a triple-link hinge and a captive clamping screw but provide the same holding power as standard two-piece collars. Now available with square, hex, round, and threaded bores, these easy to assemble shaft collars are ideally suited for assembly or repair in remote access locations such as conveyor systems and other difficult to reach machinery and equipment.
Eliminating two-piece collars with two clamping screws, Stafford Hinged Shaft Collars prevent fumbling and lost screws that could fall into equipment. Available in 25 sizes from 3/8" to 4" I.D. and 16 metric sizes from 6 mm to 50 mm, they are offered in steel and two grades of stainless steel. These hinged collars can be modified with tapped holes for attaching sensors.
Stafford Hinged Shaft Collars are priced according to configuration, size, and quantity. Pricing is available upon request.
