Taper Lock Bushes
Taper lock bushes are tapered, non-flanged, split bushings that utilize screws to tighten them to the shaft, thus providing excellent clamping force.
These bushes are utilized on pulleys and sprockets to increase the clamping force over standard bored-to-size products that only use a keyway and set screw to lock onto the shaft.
Engineers may also be interested in products which extensively use taper lock bushes. More information can be found below:
