Stafford adapter line simplifies drive system changes.
Stafford Manufacturing introduced a line of rigid coupling adapters that can extend the length of shafts and adapt to different sizes and configurations to eliminate the need for major design changes when replacing motors and related drive components. The rigid couplings feature a clamp-type female end that fits securely over an output shaft and a male shaft extension in any length up to 16 inches. Available in 1/4 to 6-inch I.D. sizes, in steel or stainless steel, the shaft adapters are offered in step-up and step-down configurations with or without keyways and shaft extensions can be round, square, hex, D, threaded, keyed, and tapered.
