Keyed shaft connections are common, but they have their shortcomings. In reciprocating applications, keyways tend to concentrate stresses around the key. In a new video, we explore two alternatives that offer an even distribution of locking forces.
If you want a wear-free way to join shaft components, take a look at locking assemblies. These devices can take the place of traditional keyed couplings that can wear and slip over time. Watch our new video to learn more about how locking assemblies work.
A shrink disc is a simple, high-force shaft coupling that eliminates material fatigue-prone keyed connections making it a great choice for both light- and heavy-duty applications. Watch our new video to see how it works.
Ringfeder Shrink Discs are easy to install and remove. This video will show you how in less than three minutes.
