Climax manufactures rigid set screw couplings and rigid clamping couplings. We also offer customized dimensions, specialized plating and manufacture from a variety of materials.
Set Screw Couplings are secured to the shaft by set screws that impinge upon the shaft. Set screw couplings are also available with a keyway for keyed shafts.
Clamp Couplings are designed in a one-piece andtwo-piece style. They provide additional holding power over set screw couplings and do not mar the shaft.
One-Piece Clamp Couplings are designed with four tangential screws that when tightened grip the shaft without marring it. Recessed screw styles of one-piece clamp couplings provide safety with an outside surface free of major projections. One-piece clamp couplings can be manufactured with a keyway for keyed shafts.
Two-Piece Clamp Couplings are designed with eight tangential screws to handle applications that require greater axial load capacity than set screw and one-piece clamping couplings. A two-piece clamp coupling can be installed without any major disassembly of the other components on the shaft. Recessed screw styles of the two-piece clamping coupling provide safety with an outside surface free of major projections. Two-piece clamping couplings can be manufactured with a keyway for keyed shafts.
Re-Machinable Couplings are two-piece clamp couplings with an undersized bore allowing the customer the necessary clearance to re-machine the bore without damaging the existing clamp screws. The pilot bore can be safely enlarged to the nominal bore size reflected in the part number nomenclature. These split couplings allow for customization and limit downtime.
Step-Down and Step-Up Shaft Adapters allow for repairing, altering, extending, increasing or decreasing the current shaft. Step-Down Adapters provide a step from a larger current shaft to a smaller one. Step-Up Adapters couple a smaller shaft and extend to a larger one. These shaft adapters are easily installed and compatible with all standard round shafts.
