Misalignment leads to increased vibration, premature seal or bearing
failures, and increased power consumption. There’s no excuse to let
misalignment cost you money. Protect your machines and minimize
costly downtime through precision laser shaft alignment.

These revolutionary headsets are not
voice activated and there is no
delay when transmitting. They
enhance industrial job site productivity and safety by providing instantaneous, “hands free”
voice communications within an
800 yard range, says the company. The XTreme is a specialty
hard hat compatible ComSTAR headset that features miniaturized
wireless circuitry and antenna installed right inside the ear cup.
This streamlined “All in One” design is a breakthrough, eliminating
the need for cables and belt pack transceivers. ComSTAR operates
within the DECT, 1920 – 1930 MHz band allocated by the FCC for
voice communications only. No FCC licensing is required.
Ruland (Marlborough, MA) has developed thin line shaft
collars for use in applications with outer diameter, width or
weight limitations. Thin line shaft collars function as clamps,
positioners, guides, spacers and stops in a smaller profile
than traditional collars. Designed for applications with space
and weight restrictions in industries such as packaging, printing and food, they are particularly suitable for split hub com-ponentry such as encoders. Two-piece styles have a balanced
design for higher RPM applications. Features include:
• High holding power in a compact design suitable for a
variety of light and medium duty applications.
• Most bore sizes available with different outer diameter
and width dimensions and screw sizes, allowing the
user to match space restrictions and holding power
with their application requirements.
• Thin line shaft collars with tightly controlled face to
bore perpendicularity, TIR of <.002” (.05mm), for proper
alignment of mating components.
