Double Split Shaft Collars
Double split shaft collars are mechanical components used to manage the position of components on a shaft. They are called "double split" because they have two cuts, typically opposite each other, allowing them to be tightened and loosened around a shaft without having to slide them on from the end. This design provides superior holding power and ease of installation and adjustment compared to single-split or solid collars. The two-piece construction is fastened with screws, allowing for easy placement and adjustment without disturbing other components on the shaft. They are commonly used in applications where space is limited or where frequent repositioning is needed, such as in motors, gearboxes, conveyors, and various machinery for holding bearings, sprockets, and other power transmission components in place.
