Reduced dimensions with lower transmission values – especially for applications with restricted space. This light duty external locking device is the first in the Shrink Disc range and is useful for low to medium torque requirements. Characteristics Shrink discs are the modern method for creating a mechanical shrink fit. The shrink disc consists of either one or two thrust rings with tapered bores and a mating tapered inner ring. By tightening locking screws the thrust rings are drawn together compressing the inner ring and applying pressure to the outside of the hub clamping it to the shaft. Being positioned around the hub there is only one interface transmitting the loads giving the shrink disc method distinct advantages such as offering the possibility of very concentric and well balanced connections that are suited to high speed applications. Traditional shrink fits require complicated calculations, close machining tolerances and fine surface finishes, they also need...
