Taper Bore Weld-on-Hubs are made out of steel, drilled, tapped and taper bored to receive standard Taper Bushes. The extended flange provides a convenient means of welding hubs into fan rotors, steel pulleys, plate sprockets, impellers, agitators and many other devices which must be firmly fastened to the shaft.
Weld-on-Hubs are easy to install and entirely suitable for use where severe operating conditions are met. Tightening the screws contracts the bore of the bush, thereby looking it to the shaft with the equivalent of press fit. This type of construction eliminates mounting difficulties, it also prevents loosening and wear on the hub during operation.
AEC Weld-on-Hubs are manufactured to complement the Taper Bush range and include W, WG, WH, WHG, WM and WMG Taper Bore Hubs. All are manufactured to world standards using C45 steel.
