Traditional shaft-hub connections are unsatisfactory in many applications, mainly where frequent start-stop rotations are involved. Over time, keyway engagement becomes less accurate due to mechanical wear. The locking assembly produced by REACH bridges the gap between the shaft and the hub and distributes the power transmission over the entire surface, while with the key connection, the transmission is only concentrated in a limited area.
In shaft-hub connections, the locking assembly replaces the traditional key and keyway system. It not only simplifies the assembly process, but also reduces the risk of component damage due to stress concentrations in the keyway or fretting corrosion. In addition, since the locking assembly can be easily installed and removed, maintenance and repair of the equipment can be done quickly and easily. We have been in a partnership with a world-leading customer in power transmission industry for more than 15 years.
