When it comes to our selection of off-the-shelf styles, sizes, and materials, Stafford simply will not be beat. Along with a full range of set-screw and clamp-style collars in a wide variety of stock materials, we offer five styles of mounting collars. Our unique Stafford Hinge Collar line comes in a range of materials and designs, including the innovative Staff-Lok™ quick release.

  1. Threaded Bore Shaft Collars

We offer a full line of threaded collars, and we are the only stocking manufacturer of Acme threaded bore collars. This wide selection satisfies a number of different demands, eliminating the need to pay for custom components.

  1. Square and Hexagonal Bore Shaft Collars

We stand alone as the only stocking manufacturer of a complete line of square and hexagonal bore collars including mounting collars.

  1. Rigid Shaft Couplings and Shaft Adapters

These components are available in one-piece, two-piece, and three-piece styles. We carry heavy-duty, precision bores, and PowerRing™ high torque couplings. You will find that we are the only stocking manufacturer of three-piece and inch/metric couplings. There is not a larger selection of stocked shaft adapter styles and materials available anywhere in the industry.

  1. Metric Shaft Collars, Rigid Shaft Couplings, and Components 

If you’re looking for metric components, we have the widest selection available. We carry larger bore sizes, AccuFlange™ Metric Mounting Collars, and Metric Face Mounting Collars.

  1. Specialty Components and Accessories

When you are searching for just the right product to make the job easier or solve a problem, take a look at our range of carefully designed specialty components and accessories. Stafford specializes in finding precise solutions!

  1. Mounting Components and Clamps

We carry mounts that are based on our one-piece, two-piece, hinged, Accu-Clamp™ or ultra-convenient Staff-Lok™ quick-release collar. This range of options means we can find an off-the-shelf solution, which eliminates the need for a custom product.

  1. Maintenance Repair and Retrofit

During maintenance and repair, the last thing you want is extra downtime. Our wide variety of stocked products is only part of the story. We also offer a full line of semi-finished customizable collars and couplings that can be finished to your final specifications within hours. And if we can’t solve your problem with our Customizables ™, our reputation for fast turn-around on quality specials is unsurpassed.
