All stainless steel design (1.4301) accommodates 4- to 20-mm diameter shafts.
Inner and outer split sleeves with opposing tapers form this friction-based system. A clamping nut climbs tapered threads of the inner sleeve to grip the shaft.
At the same time, tightening torque pushes the outer sleeve up the inner sleeve's inclined surface, distributing clamping force in the axial direction. Benefits include 360-degree clamping, no screws or keyways, and quick assembly/disassembly.

A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
