Tsubaki of Canada Ltd. can supply Power-Locks that offer a better solution for connecting components to shafts. Our Power-Locks provide exceptional clamping strength for mounting any rotational component. These keyless locking devices feature a high-precision double-taper design that is simple and powerful. They can be supplied in a wide range of bore sizes, from 19 to 500 millimeters. Tsubaki Power-Locks can help avoid the many disadvantages of a poor fit, such as reduced strength and torque, difficult removal due to interference fits or welds, and the tedious process of machining keyways to fix the fit.
Power-Locks offer a number features. These expertly engineered devices are adjustable, affordable, and can solve problems that are typical of other connection methods. Our locking devices use a shaft-to-hub friction connection. This system allows the transmission of high-torque and axial loads, and accommodates reversing and dynamic or shock loading. Power-Locks are easy to attach with no need for machining or extra assembly. This ease of installation also ensures the hub can be positioned accurately and assists with angular timing of the hub.
Once a Power-Lock is installed, the pressure from mechanical interference expands it to fill the gap between the hub and shaft. This creates a friction bond that provides a zero backlash connection. Power-Locks can be supplied in a range of styles and both inch and Metric sizes.
Since 1973, Tsubaki of Canada Ltd. has been providing reliable solutions to the Canadian market. We manufacture a wide selection of chains, sprockets, bushings, and more. Our products offer the best value since their ability to maximize productivity and minimize downtime has been well documented.
