The taper lock bush can accurately fix the shaft's hub in the axial center. When used with taper lock sprockets, they provide the advantage of faster installation and better alignment than the keyed shaft to hub connections while using less space. The bushings of these sprockets are installed in the hub to achieve a thin profile. The same sprocket can be used for different shaft diameters; Select a compatible taper lock bushing with the required hole size.
