Shaft collars are some of the simplest, yet indispensable components in power transmission. There are two main types of clamping styles when using shaft collars; 1 piece clamping, and 2 piece clamping
. In the 1 piece clamping style, shaft collar wraps around the shaft to facilitate even distribution of clamping force. The result is a tight fit and more holding power without causing damage to the shaft by screws
. The main advantage of using the 1 piece clamping style is that no specialized tools
and equipment are needed to install or remove the collars. The collars are designed for fast adjustments. Besides, the collars can be machined to facilitate mounting of other components.
