Collar resistance to axial motion on the shaft is primarily a function of screw size. The tables indicate maximum static load that a collar will support without slippage. It is based on screws atfull recommended seating torque, and for set screw collars, shaft hardness not exceeding Rockwell C35. Continue reading “What is your Axial Load Capability?”
Climax steel and aluminum collars and couplings are supplied with steel screws. Stainless steel collars and couplings as well as all non-metallic collars are supplied with stainless steel screws. Continue reading “What Type of Screws does Climax Use in its Products?”
Climax manufacturers shaft collars and rigid couplings from the following materials:
Steel = High Strength, Low Carbon Steel
Stainless Steel = Type 303 Austenitic or Type 316 Austenitic
Aluminum = Type 6061 – T651 or equivalent
Acetal = Delrin

Want to learn a little more about Rigid Couplings?
View the following presentation outlining the different rigid coupling types, materials used, and applications rigid couplings are commonly found in.
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 devices. Rigid couplings are designed for aligned shafts only, and are the most basic but often the most cost-effective coupling.

Shaft collars have extremely diverse applications. Shaft collars are 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. In general, shaft collar applications fall into one of three broad categories: Continue reading “What is a Shaft Collar?”

Climax manufactures set screw collars and clamping collars. We also customize dimensions, add keyways, offer balanced collars, provide specialized plating, and manufacture from a variety of materials.
Set Screw Collars are the most commonly used and cost effective shaft collars. The holding power of a set screw collar is provided by the impingement of the screw into the shaft. Lightweight styles are available Continue reading “What type of shaft collars does Climax manufacturer?”
Steel Collars are the most commonly used and manufactured. The exact type of steel used varies depending on the machine process but generally low-carbon steel is used, including materials such as 12L14, 1215, and 1026.
Stainless Steel Collars are used primarily in applications Continue reading “What materials are used in manufacturing Climax Shaft Collars?”
