Fasteners and retainers
Features
 

The location of bearings with a tapered bore on cylindrical shaft studs can be carried out using easy-to-fit, reliable adapter
An accessory mounted on another element, for example a lubrication adapter
and withdrawal sleeves.

 
 

Locknuts or shaft nuts can be used to locate bearings on shafts or adapter sleeves. Gradual loosening of nuts can be prevented using tab washers or retaining brackets. Shaft nuts are secured by means of force locking.

 
   
   

Adapter sleeves

For smooth and stepped shafts

 

Adapter sleeves are suitable where bearings with a tapered bore are to be located on cylindrical shafts. They do not need to be secured on the shaft by any additional means. The bearings can be positioned at any point on smooth shafts.

 
 

If adapter sleeves are used with a support ring on stepped shafts, the bearings can be axially located to high accuracy. In addition, this gives simpler dismounting of the bearings.

 
 

Adapter sleeves comprise slotted adapter
An accessory mounted on another element, for example a lubrication adapter
sleeves, locknuts and tab washers. For larger sizes, retaining brackets are used instead of tab washers.

 
 

The tensile strength
See Viscosity
of the material is at least 430 N/mm2. The outside surface of the sleeves has a taper of 1:12, in series H240 and H241 the taper is 1:30.

 
 

The dimension tables describe adapter

sleeves for metric shafts. Sleeves for inch size shafts are available by agreement.

 
   

For hydraulic method

 

Fitting and dismantling of large bearings requires high mounting forces and is made easier by using the hydraulic method. There are adapter sleeves with oil

slots on the tapered outside surface and a pump connector on the thread side. These adapter
An accessory mounted on another element, for example a lubrication adapter
sleeves have the suffix HG. The dimension tables describe the threads for the pump connector.

 
   

Withdrawal sleeves

 

Withdrawal sleeves are suitable where bearings with a tapered bore are to be located on cylindrical shafts. The tapered sleeve is pressed into the bearing bore until the required reduction in radial internal clearance is achieved. The bearing is abutted, for example, against a shoulder on the shaft.

 
 

Retainers are not included in the delivery.

 
 

The tensile strength
See Viscosity
of the material is at least 430 N/mm2.

 
 

The outside surface of the slotted steel sleeves has a taper of 1:12, in series AH240 and AH241 the taper is 1:30.

 
   

For hydraulic method

slots on the tapered outside surface and two pump connectors offset to each other by 90°. These withdrawal sleeves have the suffix H. The dimension tables give the mounting dimensions
Dimensions such as shaft diameter or hole distances, for example of bearings and guideways, which influence fitting for correct functioning
for the pump connector.

 
   

Locknuts

 

Locknuts can be used to locate bearings on shafts or adapter
An accessory mounted on another element, for example a lubrication adapter
sleeves. They also give easier mounting of bearings with a tapered shaft seat and the fitting and dismantling of bearings on withdrawal sleeves.

 
 

The locknuts are made from steel and the tensile strength
See Viscosity
of the material is at least 350 N/mm2.

 
 

They have four or eight evenly spaced slots on the circumference, into which hook wrenches or striking-face wrenches can be fitted.

 
 

By agreement, locknuts of series HM30..-H and HM31..-H with threaded holes for mounting screws are available.

 
 

Precision locknuts are described in the section Bearings for screw drives.

 
   

Shaft nuts

 

Shaft nuts HMZ allow precise and secure axial location of bearings on cylindrical and tapered shafts or on adapter
An accessory mounted on another element, for example a lubrication adapter
sleeves.

 
 

The shaft nuts are made from steel and the tensile strength
See Viscosity
is at least 350 N/mm2.

 
 

HMZ nuts are interchangeable with conventional locknuts HM and KM. They are secured, however, not by means of washers or brackets but by force locking. Four or eight axial clamping screws allow uniform clamping on the circumference, Figure 1.

 
 

For screw mounting on the shaft thread, the circumference of the nut has four or eight threaded blind holes into which the threaded rod also supplied is screwed. There is no need either for slots on the outside diameter of the nut or for any retainers. Since the shaft does not have a retaining slot, it has higher strength
See Viscosity
and is more economical to manufacture.

 
 

Shaft nuts HMZ are described in TPI WL 91-8.

Tab washers

 

Tab washers MB and MBL are simple, reliable elements for securing smaller locknuts (nuts of series KM and KML).

 
 

They have an inner tab and several outer tabs evenly spaced around the circumference. The inner tab grips in the slot on the adapter

sleeve or shaft, one of the outer tabs is bent into a slot in the nut for location.

 
 

The washers are made from steel and the tensile strength
See Viscosity
of the material is at least 300 N/mm2.

 
   

Retaining brackets

 

Retaining brackets of series MS are fixed to the locknut using a hexagonal screw. They engage in a slot in the nut and in the adapter
An accessory mounted on another element, for example a lubrication adapter
sleeve or shaft.

 
 

The fixing screw has a self-locking thread up to M16, for sizes from M20 a standardised hexagonal screw with a retainer is used.

 
 

Retaining brackets are used with locknuts of series HM30 and HM31.
