Slitter & Rewinder

Industry: Manufacturing
Application: Slitter and Rewinder

Problem:          In this application, the manufacturer needed to connect sprockets to a shaft but did not want to use a traditional keyed mount.  They wanted the capability of positioning a sprocket on the shaft.

Solution:          Fenner Drives suggested using the Trantorque GT Keyless Bushing.  The Trantorque GT units eliminate the need for a key in the shaft which, in turn, eliminates the high cost associated with machining the keyway.  Trantorque GT uses a single locking hex nut.  This unique design allows for an easy on/off installation, as well an extremely precise radial and axial positioning.  All of Fenner Drives’ Trantorque products use a mechanical shrink fit to provide exceptional holding power.  Since they are keyless, there is no fretting corrosion that is typically associated with a keyed connection.
