Taper Lock Bushes
Chain & Drives have Steel Taper Lock Bushes for heavy duty applications.
We have a wide range of Taper lock bushes, used for the mechanical joining of a shaft to a sprocket or a pulley. Taper lock bushes are fastened securely to a shaft via the tapered surface. This provides flexibility between the main component to be suitable with many shaft sizes. Our range of Taper Lock Bushes complements our coupling, pulley and sprockets stock.
Taper Lock Bushes come in a variety of bore sizes, in both metric and imperial. Locking Assemblies provide reliable, high strength keyless connections by converting locking screw clamp loads into radial contact pressures applied simultaneously to both the shaft and the bore of the mounted component.
The resulting zero-backlash mechanical interference fit will accommodate high torque, thrust, bending and/or radial loads and unlike other mounting technologies will never wear or pound out, even for high cycle fluctuating or reversing loads. Locking Assemblies also provide reliable, high strength keyless connections for shaft driven devices. When the Locking Units bolts are tightened plates engage with both the shaft and the inside circumference of the driven component.
The Locking Assembly distributes the applied pressure evenly. No keyways or grubscrews are required with this device.
