Bushings mount on the shaft of motors and other sources of rotational energy to transfer power and reduce vibration. There are keyless, quick disconnect, taper locking, and split taper shaft mounted bushings. Keyless bushings are used to fasten shafts and hubs without any backlash. They work well with smaller bearings and can be mounted to plain shafts without any oversize discrepancies. Quick disconnect bushings and hubs are simple, easy-to-install bushings used to mount pulleys and sheaves on shafts. They are split to provide strong clamping force and are keyed to prevent the shaft from rotating in the bushing. Taper-locking bushings and hubs feature a flangeless, screw-driven design used in flush-mounting and high-torque applications, while split taper bushings contain a double-split barrel to provide a strong hold on shafts. Split taper bushings do not require a perfectly matching bored component and can accommodate shaft size changes without manual adjustment or replacement.

    Quick disconnect (QD) bushings and hubs are simple, easy to install.  These bushings are used to mount pulleys and sheaves on shafts.
  • Split Taper Bushing

    Split Taper Bushing (1)

    The split tapered bushing is a flanged bushing.  Split tapered bushings are used to mount pulleys, sprockets, and sheaves on shafts as the shaft transmits torque. The split tapered bushing alleviates the need to have a component bored to size, which should reduce the number of units needed on hand and allowing for variations in shaft diameter. The barrel of the…
