The Taper-Lock bushing system keeps the sprocket hubs narrow so the length-thru-bore dimension is significantly less than ever before. The left-justified hub design allows shaft mounting near to bearings, keeping the guts of load dimension little while preventing issues with high overhung loads.

Taper-Lock bushings are split through the flange and gradual taper to supply a true clamp suit on the shaft this is the exact carbon copy of a shrink fit.
Dodge Taper-Lock bushings are flangeless for clean, compact application. They are engineered with an 8° taper and a flush-mounted design without protruding parts providing protected locking and elimination of wobble. Furthermore, Dodge Taper-Lock bushings can be found with an optional Gemstone D integral key in popular sizes for a far more precise fit.
Stock sizes available up to 12” shaft diameter
Worldwide acceptance and availability inch and metric bores
Flush Mounting-No Protruding Parts
Diamond D Integral Important for Added Worth and Convenience
Materials obtainable in sintered metal, cast iron, ductile iron, steel and stainless
L – Space required to tighten bushing or loosen to remove hub with puller using short hex key.
M – Space required to remove bushing using screws as jackscrews – brief hex key – no puller reuired.
Listed necessary hub diameter is for reference just. Severe conditions may necessitate larger hub and in some instances a slightly smaller sized hub could be satisfactory. Inquire about specific application.
Use a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and several other power transmission applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split style to help provide easy set up and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an interior screw to help drive the bushing in to the shaft, while a split taper includes a flange and an integral on the bushing to help provide more drive.

The Taper-Lock bushing size is defiined by 4 digits representing two numbers. The initial two digits represent the maximum bore size and the second two digits represent the bushing length. For example, product number 1008 includes a max bore of just one 1.0″ and a total length of 0.8″
In . bore sizes are specified with the complete inch followed by the fraction. For example a 1.5″ diameter bore will be 1-1/2. Metric bore sizes are designated with “MM” after the metric dimension. These bushings are simple to install and remove, these bushings match flush into tapered bushing sprockets and or pulleys. The bushing contacts and wedges inward, gripping the shaft and bore of the sprocket. Bushings possess an 8° taper, are constructed with steel and have a black oxide coating.
Gates Taper-Lock bushings are accustomed to install pulleys, sprockets and sheaves on shafts. The long lasting stainless construction is well suited for food and beverage applications or where noncorrosive sprockets are had a need to prevent rust.

Bushings are made to precise tolerances.
Provides excellent clamping push for secure shaft connection.
Available in popular and standard bore sizes.
Stainless steel bushings are corrosion resistant, stopping rust buildup to increase product life.
This Ever-Power’s size 3030 taper lock bushing with a torque capacity of 24000 in-lbs is made of steel and is utilized for installation a taper lock pulley, sheave, or sprocket on a drive shaft. It really is flush mounted for reduced installation width and has a split taper for a tight clamp to shafts. The bushing is constructed of steel for greater strength and shock resistance than cast iron. It really is keyed to the shaft to prevent the shaft from rotating in the bushing, and it is interchangeable with taper lock bushings from different producers. This taper lock bushing is used in automobiles, construction tools, agricultural machinery, and home appliances, among others. Bushings are cylindrical parts utilized to mount pulleys, sheaves, sprockets, or other elements to operate a vehicle shafts for the transmission of mechanical power. The majority of bushings are split and have a tapered outside surface so they’ll clamp to the shaft when tightened against the tapered bore of the driven component. They are constructed of durable metals such as for example cast iron and metal. Bushings are used in automobiles, construction tools, and machine tools, among others. Ever-Power’s manufactures bushings, pulleys, couplings, and electronic electric motor controls.
1. Before setting up the bushing, polish the following components:
a. Surface of shaft
b. Bore of the bushing
c. Tapered inside diameter of the Taper-Lock hub
d. Tapered outside diameter of the Taper-Lock bushing
Remove all burrs and foreign material. Any particles remaining on the mating surfaces could cause improper installation.
Note: Do not lubricate mating surfaces.
2. Being careful not to damage bore or hubs, slide shaft into pulley.
3. Slide bushings onto shaft and into hubs. Oil thread stage of arranged screws or thread and under mind of capscrews. Place screws
loosely in the holes that are threaded on the hub side.
4. Locate shaft in position desired and hand tighten screws in each bushing somewhat to ensure that bushings are snug in hubs.
5. Tighten screws alternately and evenly in a single bushing just until all screws are extremely tight. Use a piece of pipe on the wrench to
increase leverage. See table on the trunk for wrench torque.
Avoid excessive wrench torque to prevent damage to the threads. After that make use of a hammer against much metal or bronze bar held
against bushings. Hammer first beside the screw farthest from the bushing split and then hammer on the bushing opposite side of
the screw. Avoid hammering near to the OD of the bushing to avoid damage. Working toward the split, hammer on bushing on
each side of every screw. After that hammer on each side of the bushing split. Make certain the areas on both sides of the split are also.
Screws can now be tightened a little more using the specified torque. Continue doing this alternate hammering and screw re-tightening
until the specified wrench torque no longer turns the screws after hammering.
Check to ensure the surface on both sides of the split are also. Fill the other holes with grease to exclude dirt.
The Taper-Lock bushing system keeps the sprocket hubs narrow therefore the length-thru-bore dimension is less than in the past. The left-justified hub style allows shaft mounting near to bearings, keeping the center of load dimension little while preventing issues with high overhung loads.
