Ruland Shaft Collars Use 316-Grade Stainless Steel

Ruland Manufacturing offers a range of smooth-bore shaft collars in 316-grade stainless steel, designed to meet the needs of food-processing, medical and pharmaceutical applications. The 316-grade stainless steel includes more molybdenum than other grades and offers higher resistance to pitting and crevice corrosion in chloride environments.

The company's shaft collars in 316-grade stainless steel are available in one- and two-piece clamp-style designs, with bore sizes from 1/8 to 3in in the inch series and 3 to 50mm in the metric series. 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 perpendicularity and correct alignment. A precise shaft-collar face-to-bore relationship ensures that components are correctly positioned and not tilted on the shaft.

Collar-face perpendicularity also ensures even pressure on interfaced components. Ruland offers shaft collars in type-303 stainless steel, aluminium, black-oxide carbon steel and engineered plastic. The company's product line also includes rigid couplings with precision-honed bores and five types of zero-backlash motion-control couplings - beam, bellows, oldham, miniature disc and curved jaw.
