Fairloc® the Integral Rotating Component Fastener.



Description
The Fairloc® Hub is designed to solve phasing, timing, positioning and frequent removal problems which conventional fastening methods, such as clamps, keyways, pins or set screws, cannot properly handle. The patented system offers several advantages including: built-in overload protection, full use of the bore, easy adjustment, compact self-contained design. With the very economical Fairloc® system, the shaft remains smooth. Being self-contained, there is no additional inventory to stock. The component can be easily adjusted and is fully supported.

Here is how it works: 
Two slots are machined into the hub, one oriented radially, the other angularly, to create a transverse wedge which remains attached to the solid portion of the hub on one side. The resultant cantilevered clamping section has a tapped hole to accept a cap screw which passes through a clearance hole in the solid portion of the hub, and into a threaded hole in the transverse wedge section. As the screw is tightened, the cantilevered section clamps the shaft securely. The screw can be tightened and released repeatedly without marring the shaft or affecting its torque transmitting abilities. 
SDP/SI - Kinetic Scuplture Video OEM Design Engineers, Machinists, Students, Hobbyists and others rely on SDP/SI for all their small mechanical components and precision gear requirements. Over 87,000 high-quality machined components, molded parts and precision gears are featured in our catalogs.

SDP/SI Catalogs are found on desks around the world because they not only provide detailed product information, but prove to be a handy reference tool when designing. Each catalog features a technical section to assist in designing a Synchronous Drive System - Timing Belts, Pulleys, Chains and Sprockets (Inch Catalog) and a gear drive, Elements of Gear Technology (Metric Catalog). Also included are conversion tables, formulas of energy, inertia, torque, power and work, and various standards and dimensions for inch and metric fasteners, timing belts, pulleys, and much more.
