WILMINGTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2015) - Stafford Manufacturing Corp. has introduced a line of rigid coupling adapters that can extend the length of shafts and adapt to different sizes and configurations. They frequently eliminate the need for major design changes when replacing motors and related drive components.

Stafford Shaft Adapters are rigid couplings with a clamp-type female end that fits securely over an output shaft and features a male shaft extension in any length up to 16" which can be machined to customer specifications. Designed to simplify drive system changes, these adapters can solve shaft compatibility issues in a wide range of OEM and MRO applications.

Available in 1/4" to 6" I.D. sizes, in steel or stainless steel, Stafford Shaft Adapters are offered in step-up and step-down configurations with or without keyways and shaft extensions can be round, square, hex, D, threaded, keyed, and tapered. Applications include adapting to different shaft sizes and inch-metric dimensions in replacing motors and related modifications.
