For quick, economical gearbox shaft connections, there is the Smart-Lock system, which combines Ringfeder’s Shrink Disc technology with adaptor bushings.
In each Smart-Lock set, the cylindrical bushings mate with the solid shaft’s outside diameter and the hollow shaft’s inside diameter. The Shrink Disc locks all components together — creating a perfect hollow shaft connection every time.
Reduce manufacturing costs. Smart-Lock compensates for clearances up to 0.2 millimeters — eliminating expensive precision machining operations.
Save installation time. Smart-Lock is easy to install and remove. It takes just a few minutes to install and disassembles just as quickly.
Reduce component inventory and costs. Smart-Lock’s interchangeability reduces the component inventory needed for gearbox-shaft connections—cutting inventory costs by as much as 70%.
