MOTION CONTROL: Ruland Manufacturing Co. Inc. offers a full range of smooth bore shaft collars in 316-grade stainless steel to meet the demanding needs of food processing, medical and pharmaceutical applications.
Ruland shaft collars in 316-grade stainless steel are available in one- and two-piece clamp-style designs with bore sizes from 1/8 to 3 inch and 3 to 50 mm. Clamp-style collars do not mar the shaft, provide higher holding power and are more easily adjustable when compared to set screw type shaft collars. All Ruland shaft collars are single point faced to ensure proper alignment. A precise shaft collar face to bore relationship ensures that components are both properly positioned and not tilted on the shaft.
Ruland also offers shaft collars in type 303 stainless steel, aluminum, black oxide carbon steel and engineered plastic.
