Locking devices are used for attaching belt pulleys, chain wheels and other components on the shaft. They are suitable for small shafts in which a key/slot connection is not possible. By tightening the connecting screws, the two inverse conical shaped parts cause an increase in the diameter of the outer ring and a reduction of the diameter on the inner ring. This ensures a tight fit of the components and easy installation and removal.
Advantages of locking devices:
- Eliminates the play between the shaft and the driven part
- The load is distributed evenly over the entire diameter
- Reduced time used for assembly of the machine and maintenance downtime
