Double wide shaft collars are mechanical components designed to fit around a shaft or rod and hold other components, such as bearings or sprockets, in place. They are called “double wide” because they have a wider width than standard shaft collars, which allows them to hold more components or larger components in place.

Double wide shaft collars are commonly used in industrial applications such as conveyor systems, packaging machinery, and robotics, where they provide a reliable and durable way to hold components in place on a rotating shaft.

Double Wide Shaft Collar

Double wide shaft collars are a type of shaft collar that is wider than standard shaft collars. This increased width provides them with greater holding power, making them ideal for applications with high axial loads. Double wide shaft collars can also be used as a short rigid coupling in space-restricted applications.

There are two main types of double wide shaft collars: one-piece and two-piece. One-piece double wide shaft collars are a single, solid piece of material. Two-piece double wide shaft collars are made up of two halves that are bolted together. Double wide shaft collars are available in a variety of materials, including steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. They are also available in a variety of sizes, so you can find the perfect one for your application.

Double wide shaft collars are manufactured in one-piece and two-piece clamp type. They have 25% more holding power than equivalent size and type standard collars. Double wides can be used as a short rigid coupling in space restricted applications that will not fit a standard sized rigid coupling. HZPT manufactures double wide shaft collars in 1215 lead-free steel with a proprietary black oxide finish, 303 stainless steel, and high-strength 2024 aluminum. Bore sizes range from 1/8″ to 2″ and 6mm to 25mm.

▍Double Wide Shaft Collar Design Features

Double wide shaft collars typically have several design features that make them suitable for holding multiple components or larger components in place on a shaft. Some of the common design features of double wide shaft collars include:

(1) Wider Width: As the name suggests, double wide shaft collars have a wider width than standard shaft collars. This allows them to hold more components or larger components in place on the shaft.

(2) Multiple Mounting Holes: Double wide shaft collars often have multiple mounting holes on each side of the shaft collar. This allows for greater flexibility in mounting and positioning components on the collar.

(3) Two-Piece Design: Some double wide shaft collars are designed as two separate pieces that can be bolted together around the shaft. This allows for easier installation and removal of the shaft collar, as well as greater flexibility in positioning components on the shaft collar.

(4) Clamp Design: Double wide shaft collars may use a clamping mechanism to hold the shaft collar in place on the shaft. This can provide a secure and reliable hold without damaging the shaft.

(5) Material Selection: Double wide shaft collars can be made from a variety of materials, including steel, aluminum, and stainless steel. The choice of material will depend on the specific application and the requirements for the shaft collar.

(6) Customization options: Double wide shaft collars can be customized with various features, such as keyways, set screws, and tapped holes, to meet specific application needs.

▍Benefits of Using the Double Wide Shaft Collars

There are several benefits to using double wide shaft collars in industrial applications. Here are some of the main advantages of using double wide shaft collars:

1. Increased stability: The wider design of double wide shaft collars provides greater clamping force and stability, making them ideal for applications with heavy loads or high torque. This increased stability can help to reduce vibration and improve overall system performance.

2. Improved accuracy: Double wide shaft collars can be machined to provide a smooth surface finish, reducing friction and wear on the shaft. This can help to improve accuracy and precision in applications where tight tolerances are required.

3. Improved stiffness: The wider width of the double wide shaft collars also makes it more rigid than a standard shaft collar. This improved stiffness helps to prevent the collar from flexing under load, which can lead to premature failure.

4. Easy installation and removal: Double wide shaft collars are typically made from two separate pieces that are bolted together around the shaft. This design allows for easy installation and removal without having to disassemble other components on the shaft.

5. Versatile: Double wide shaft collars can be used in a wide range of industrial applications, from conveyor systems to packaging machinery to automotive assembly lines. Their versatility makes them a popular choice for many different industries.

▍Double Wide Shaft Collars Usage Scenarios

Double wide shaft collars are used in a variety of industrial applications where components need to be securely attached to a shaft. Here are some common scenarios where double wide shaft collars are used:

Conveyor systems: Double wide shaft collars are often used to attach rollers or pulleys to a conveyor shaft, providing a secure and stable connection.

Packaging machinery: Double wide shaft collars can be used to attach cutting blades, rollers, or other components to a packaging machine's shaft, ensuring precise and accurate operation.

Automotive assembly lines: Double wide shaft collars are commonly used in automotive assembly lines to attach , pulleys, and other components to the assembly line's drive shafts.

Industrial machinery: Double wide shaft collars are used in various types of industrial machinery, such as pumps, compressors, and generators, to securely attach components to the shafts.

Robotics: Double wide shaft collars can be used in robotics applications to attach arms, grippers, and other components to the robot's shafts.

Overall, double wide shaft collars are used in many different industrial applications where reliable and stable connections between components and shafts are necessary. Their versatility and customization options make them a popular choice for many different industries.
