Keyless bushings are small devices that offer secure connections between the hub and shaft while reducing wear and stress to mounted components. By using surface pressure to secure their position, keyless shaft bushings eliminate the need for tapers, keyways and tapped holes which often lead to component wear and stress due to corrosion, fretting and backlash. Keyless bushings do not depend on the key to transmit torque but instead utilize the whole shaft circumference for better operation with no backlash. The surface pressure is evenly distributed over the entire length of the connection thus reducing micro-movements that can cause fretting. Keyless shaft bushings
make mounting faster, easier and a more precise process as all you need is to mount, set in position then lock the busing with a torque wrench.
