Plastic Machining Company shaft collars are generally made from acetal, a generic name for what is commonly called Delrin®.
Acetal is a high-performance plastic that is superior to nylon and most metals in applications utilizing shaft collars, as it offers higher rigidity, holds threads better and exhibits higher chemical resistance.
Acetal also allows for zero moisture absorption and eliminates swelling issues more commonly seen with other materials.
Plastic Machining Company employs only state-of-the art CNC machining and every collar is hand crafted, finished and inspected. Other plastic grades and types are available for unique application considerations.
If your specific collar is not in stock, we can produce most parts in fifteen working days. Check with Plastic Machining Company for specifics.
