Product Groups

Shaft Collars

Shaft collars are commonly used in industrial applications to hold shaft components, like bearings, sprockets, and pulleys, in place.

One-Piece Clamping Collars

Designed to handle applications that require a greater axial load capacity than set screw collars without marring the shaft.

Two-Piece Clamping Collars

Designed to handle applications that require greater axial load capacity than set screw and one-piece clamping collars without marring the shaft.

Set Screw Collars

Set screw collars are the most cost effective shaft collar design. Lightweight styles are available where an application has a space constraint.

Threaded Clamping Collars

Provide a greater amount of axial holding capacity on threaded shafts. The design fully engages the thread for secure locking.

End Stop Collars

End stop collars fit over rail assemblies on precision shafting

Rigid Couplings

Shaft couplings are used to time, join, or align shafts at lower speeds and torque, especially when zero backlash is desired. They are designed for aligned shafts only and not intended for use as a substitute for flexible couplings or universal joints.

One-Piece Clamping Couplings

Designed to handle applications that require a greater torque capacity than set screw couplings without marring the shaft.

Two-Piece Clamping Couplings

Designed to handle applications that require a greater torque capacity than set screw couplings and one-piece couplings without marring the shaft.

Set Screw Couplings

Set screw couplings are the most cost effective rigid coupling design.

Re-Machinable Couplings

These two-piece rigid clamping couplings come with an undersized ID allowing for room to re-bore the ID without damaging the clamp screws.

Shaft Adapters

Shaft adapters allow for repairing, altering, extending, increasing, or decreasing the current shaft. They are easily installed and compatible with all standard round shafts.

Keyless Locking Devices

Keyless Locking Devices (KLDs) are mechanical bushings used to connect power transmission components onto rotating shafts. Without the use of keyways, KLDs eliminate the problems associated with backlash including fretting, corroding, and wallowing. KLDs work with straight bores and generous tolerances, reducing component machining and complexity costs.

Locking Assemblies

Industry-standard internal keyless locking assemblies are available for shaft diameters from ¼ in. to 8 in. and from 6 mm to 400 mm.

Shrink Discs

Shrink discs are manufactured from heat treated high carbon alloy steel and are supplied with zinc-plated outer rings.

Keyless Rigid Couplings

Shaft-to-shaft keyless rigid couplings are available for shaft diameters from 5/8 in. to 4-¼ in. and from 6 mm to 150 mm. They provide high torque and bending moment capacity and can couple unequal shaft diameters.

Clesco Mounted Light Duty Bearings

Clesco bearings provide support for shaft rotation in light duty applications. Inserts are available as ball, bronze, or UHMW-PE and are housed in zinc die-cast, pressed steel, or stainless steel.

Pillow block and flange mount bearings are available with housing units made from die-cast zinc, pressed steel and pressed stainless steel.

Pillow Block Bearings

Flange Mount Bearings

Sleeve Bearings

Available in bronze or UHMW-PE. Bronze sleeve bearings are self-oiling and ideal for motors, pulleys, repair jobs, bore reducers, etc. UHMW-PE sleeve bearings are USDA/FDA approved for washdown environments and ideal for slow rotating or linear motion applications.

Bearing Kits

These bearing kits are for installing or removing internal bushings and bearings. Kits are available in different sizes and contain drivers and adapters.

Clesco Abrasive Hardware

Abrasive mandrels, arbors, and rubber expansion drums are used in the manufacturing of cartridge rolls and mounting various finishing products. Applications include woodworking, metal finishing, automotive, jewelry, glass, leather, stone, and tool and die.


Mandrels are used for mounting various types of abrasive products and finishing wheel.


Motor and grinder shaft arbors have either a machined or stamped washer design and are used for mounting abrasive wheels. They are secured to smooth shafts with socket set screw.

Drill Centers for Dowel and Tenon

Drill centers have an external and internal marking point for exact drilling location. They are manufactured from steel with a zinc-plated finish and provide precision alignment of dowels and tenon joints.

Sanding Drums, Sanding Drum Kits, and Sanding Sleeves

Rubber expanding drums are for mounting abrasive spiral bands, which are secured on the drum by controlled expansion of the solid rubber drum spindle. Available in Screw Lock, Nut Lock or Quick Lock. Shaft Mount design is mounted with two socket set screws.

Rubber expanding drum kits feature an assortment of popular drum sizes with a fine, medium, and coarse grit.

Sanding sleeves are abrasive spiral bands with resin-bond aluminum oxide and a hard cloth back. Ideal for sanding and polishing curves, corners, flat, and irregular surfaces. Spiral bands are designed for use on Climax solid rubber expanding drums. Available in 36, 50, 80, and 120 grit.
