Shaft Collars

Shaft collars have extremely diverse applications. Shaft collars have been used on applications from holding up a flag on a flag pole, to positioning devices on medical equipment to the more common industrial applications of holding other shaft components such as bearings, sprockets and pulleys in place.

Rigid Couplings

Shaft Couplings serve as components to time, join, or align shafts at lower speeds and torque, especially when zero backlash is desired. They are not intended for use as a critical part of a drive line or as a substitute for flexible or universal joints or other power transmission device. Designed for aligned shafts only and rigid couplings are the most basic but often the most cost-effective coupling option.

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. In addition, KLDs are installed and removed using simple hand tools; no heat or high forces are required.

Clesco Mounted Light Duty Bearings

Pillow block or flange mounted light duty bearings mount bearings safely enabling the outer ring to be stationary while allowing rotation of the inner ring. Housed bearings are bolted to a foundation through the holes in the base. On some styles seals are provided to prevent dust and other contaminants from entering the housing. The housing provides a clean environment for the bearing to freely rotate, increasing their performance and duty cycle.
