6050 Taper Lock Bushings

What are tapered lock bushings and how do they work? In this article, we’ll discuss what these bushings are and why they’re important to your equipment. A tapered locking bushing is a type of bushing that holds bolts to the hub. They are used in many industrial applications, including pulley and hub mounting. While these bushings are standardized, their actual bolt holes may vary from the chart.
Taper-Lock bushings are used for the mechanical connection of shafts, gears and pinions. Their tapered surfaces provide flexibility between the main component and shaft, while keyways and threads provide rigidity. Taper-Lock bushings are machined to meet ISO standards. Mounted on tapered hubs, these bushings are capable of withstanding the forces of high cantilever loads. To take full advantage of this feature, you must order the appropriate Taper-Lock bushing, which must fit the hub.
Unlike flanged bushings, tapered locking bushings do not require flanges for installation. They use a blind hex socket head cap screw to drive the bushing into the hole of the assembly and compress the inner diameter of the bushing. This design also makes them easier to install and remove, saving machining time and money. Also, if you are working with a complex machine, you can purchase pre-assembled tapered lock sleeves for a variety of applications.

Taper Lock Bushing Size Chart

The dimension table below shows the standard dimensions of the taper lock bushing, please note that the following figure is the basic dimension required, the actual installation and removal of the bolt holes may vary.

As 1 of the advantages of tapered lock bushings, it is also a very popular choice among wheel nuts. Unlike standard wheel nuts, tapered lock bushings have longer threads that fit into the grooves. Unlike traditional wheel nuts, which require a lot of thread cutting, tapered lock bushings are closer to the axle. The length of the thread is greater than the actual diameter of the bushing, making it more precise.
Another advantage of tapered locking bushings is that they save inventory. Tapered lock bushings are easier to replace than standard bushings because the hub has tapered bores and requires less expensive finishing. These advantages are outweighed by a number of obvious disadvantages. Nonetheless, these advantages are offset by cost savings associated with lower inventory and assembly times.
Another benefit of tapered lock bushing pulleys is that it enables unskilled workers to obtain a shrink-fit on the pulley coupling and shaft. In addition to being an excellent choice for traction applications, tapered lock bushing pulleys are also valuable in solvent plants for improving the quality and efficiency of plant processes. It also increases the durability of the machine.
