Shaft locking devices connect components onto a shaft. They are used to support axial thrust and give them the capability to transmit torque. The beauty of Pies Shaft Locking Bushes is that they eliminate the need for high tolerance bores. They clamp the components securely to the shaft with no backlash.
Shaft locking devices are suitable for use with flywheels, pulleys, gears, sprockets, etc. The cost of Shaft locking devices is minimised because of their simple assembly and disassembly. They can replace more obvious fastening methods, like keyways, weldings, splines, keyways and taper bushes.
When using Shaft locking devices, the recommended machining tolerances for surfaces are:
Shaft diameter h8Hub
Shaft locking devices are available in two models:
RCK 70 shaft locking device: This item is Self centering. The RCK 70 is suitable for medium-high torque ratings Application where concentricity and orthagonal positioning is required
RCK 80 shaft locking device: This item is self centreing The RCK 80 can accomodate axial displacements Suitable for assemblies on hubs with thin walls
