Stock Drive Products/Sterling Instrument (SDP/SI; New Hyde Park, NY) has expanded its component offering with the introduction of a new series of Fairloc Hub Miter and Bevel Gears. The precision gear sets feature the unique Fairloc hub design, are machined from Stainless Steel and Anodized Aluminum and are offered in a variety of ratios. The Fairloc hub precision miter and bevel gear sets are available as standard catalog items, but can be customized to meet client requirements, such as different number of teeth, different pitch, bore size, or passivation. The unique one piece construction eliminates the need for two separate components, a clamp and split hub bevel gear, resulting in greater reliability, time and cost savings.
The compact, self-contained Fairloc hub provides better reliability of fixing the gear to the shaft, superior accuracy of clamped gear runout to the shaft and easy adjustment. Fairloc can be tightened and released repeatedly without marring the shaft.
