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 We know that sometimes it takes a custom timing belt and pulley drive system to make everything run smoothly. SDP/SI can modify any of our existing stock timing pulleys and cut custom timing belt lengths for your unique application, creating a custom solution! SDP/SI offers fast-turnaround on precision-engineered components, secondary operations, off-the-shelf or custom components, materials, and specifications.

Many styles, sizes, and configurations are available.

Q: Do you need to open up a bore?
Q: Would you have better results with a lighter plastic pulley?
Q: Do you need a keyway?

A: Whatever your requirements are, we can create a custom pulley specifically for your needs. All of our quality custom-manufactured components are built to deliver the most consistent performance.
