Custom large bore shaft collars and couplings for drive train applications in wind power generation systems are available from Stafford Manufacturing Corp.
The company’s shaft collars and rigid couplings are custom engineered for applications up to 16” and 8” I.D., and come in one- and two-piece configurations that can be modified to meet a variety of special requirements. Suitable for wind power generator drive systems, they incorporate steel targets that can be read from both the face and the O.D. to add speed sensing capability to shafts.
These products can be manufactured from aluminum, steel, stainless steels, titanium, brass, and other alloys with dimensional tolerances of <0.001” and run-out and concentricity tolerances of <0.001” TIR, depending on the part configuration. Modifications can include keyways, slots, cam surfaces, special threads and other features.
