Shaft Collars And Couplings

Posted on November 2, 2011

Stafford Manufacturing Corp. has introduced a standard line of shaft collars and rigid shaft couplings for use in the square and hex drive systems found in commercial farm equipment. They are offered in a variety of configurations including paintable steel.

The new AG shaft collars are designed with the hex and square bores found in commercial farm equipment drives systems and can be supplied in sizes from 1/2 to 8 in. in the diagonal.

The shaft collars and couplings are available off-the-shelf and come in one-piece, two-piece and set-screw styles. They are machined from aluminum, stainless steel and steel, which can be plain, plated, paintable, or case-hardened.

The AG shaft collars are designed to simplify machinery building and maintenance. The shaft collars and shaft couplings with threaded and keyed bores and other special features can also be provided to match customer specifications, Stafford said.
