Custom manufactured shaft collars that often include modifications, which end users previously made on their own, are now available from Stafford Manufacturing Corp.
Stafford Custom Shaft Collars can include minor modifications to their standard parts such as slots, flats, through-holes, and threaded holes to complete custom designs with cams, levers, mounting holes, hinges, and more. Typically combining multiple functions to eliminate extra parts and improve mechanical efficiency and structural integrity, they can enhance drive system performance and add mounting or system integration capabilities.
Supplied in prototype through production quantities, Stafford Custom Shaft Collars can be machined from alloy steels, stainless alloys, titanium, aluminum with anodizing in bright colors, brass, bronze, Teflon, Delrin, nylon, and other materials. Ranging from 1/8 to 10-in. I.D. with round, square, and other bore styles, dimensional tolerances of < 0.001-in. and
< 0.001-in. T.I.R. concentricity can be achieved, depending upon configuration.
