Rigid Shaft Couplings for Heavy Duty Mixers and Machinery
Stafford’s Heavy Duty Rigid Couplings feature a larger body-to-bore ratio than conventional couplings and utilize larger clamping screws to provide extra holding power. Typical applications include mixers, feeders, and conveyors in the offroad, pulp & paper, and recycling equipment industries.
Shaft Collars Won't Damage Structural Tubing
Stafford’s machined two-piece shaft collars are ideal for locating and mounting objects onto square and round structural tubing or for mounting tubing onto a wall, display, rack, conveyor, or machine. Infinitely adjustable and having a smooth bore to attach securely without marring the shaft or tubing, they can be modified on the outside diameter to accommodate a wide range of mounting arrangements.
Flange Mount Shaft Collars
Stafford’s line of clamp-on shaft collars with mounting holes can be supplied with plain or custom flanges featuring different mounting hole patterns. Users can attach all types of components such as gears, pulleys, and sprockets without welding. These flange mounting collars have a smooth bore and clamping feature that won’t mar shafts.
Shaft Collars, Rigid Couplings and Mounting Components for Packaging Systems
Stafford Shaft Collars, Couplings and Mounts are available in a wide range of sizes, materials, and configurations to meet the challenges associated with building packaging machinery. Featuring over 3,600 standard items, the line includes collars and couplings, the Staff-Lok™ hinged collar which is easy to open-close and clamp by hand, and the Grip & Go™ handle that can convert a standard shaft collar into a rapidly adjustable locating device.
Large Bore Shaft Collars for Heavy Duty Conveyors and Equipment
Stafford’s large bore shaft collars and flange mounts are ideal for many applications including construction equipment, processing and mining conveyors, energy applications, and more. They are designed for heavy-duty drive system applications and are offered in one and two-piece clamp-type configurations with smooth round, square, hex, and threaded bores.
Shaft Adapters Simplify Drive System Changes
Stafford Shaft Adapters are rigid couplings with a clamp-type female end that fits securely over an output shaft and features a male shaft extension in any length up to 16” which can be machined to customer specifications. This line of rigid coupling adapters can extend the length of shafts and conform to different sizes and configurations thus eliminating the need for major design changes when replacing motors and related drive components.
Component Mounting Collars Expand Design Options and Protect Shafts
Stafford’s Component Mounting Shaft Collars feature a perfectly square integral mounting clamp which provides a flat mounting surface with multiple attachment options. These mounts can be easily repositioned and are suitable for use with a wide range of components including gears, lever arms, pulleys, and sprockets.
Weldable Shaft Collars and Couplings Improve Design Options
Stafford’s line of weldable shaft collars and couplings are now offered in weldable stainless steel and include hinged collars and flange mounts that can be easily modified to improve design options. Weldable shaft collars and couplings allow users add items such as brackets, cams, lever arms, mounts, pins, and rods.
Precision Shaft Collars Hold and Locate Sensors and Components
Stafford Instrument Shaft Collars are precision machined and offered with custom threads ranging from extra-fine to coarse, to provide full contact with threaded shafts for holding and locating sensors and components. Designed for use in precision instruments in aerospace, automation, laboratory, medical, and optical applications, they can be machined from aluminum, steel, stainless steel, and special alloys.
Wrenching Pipe Collars Prevent Crushing and Teeth Marks
Stafford’s line of smooth bore, two-piece collars feature wrenching flats and fit on six popular pipe sizes to facilitate installation and removal. Especially effective for removing frozen pipes and tubing, they let users apply torque using standard wrenches without crushing and teeth marks.
Weather-Resistant Shaft Collars Hold, Locate and Mount Objects Outdoors
Stafford Weather-Resistant Shaft Collars are available for a variety of outdoor uses including truck racks, structural components for communications, utility equipment and solar arrays, RV, marine, and related applications. Available in sizes from 1/4” up to 10” with various bore configurations, depending upon the material, they can be modified with mounting holes, knurls, and other secondary options to meet OEM design specifications.
Pipe Mount Clamps Speed Pipe and Tube Changes
Stafford’s line of lever-actuated hinged shaft collars are now offered with a mounting flat to create high-strength, quick change pipe mounts and pipe hangers. Staff-Lok™ Hinged Shaft Collars feature an integral hinge with a conformal cam lever for clamping and a knurled nut for adjusting the clamping preset, which makes it easy to open/close and clamp by hand.
