QD bushing that is also known as the quick-disconnect bushing is featured with a split tapered flange. We have seen that these bushings are widely used on sprockets, sheaves, and also on pulleys. QD bushing is required where a huge clamping force is necessary. These are also required to mount the following drives
- V-belt drives
- Synchronous belt drives
- Roller chain drives
This is widely used in the development and replacement of components. The primary feature for which QD bushing is widely used is the easy removal and installation process. These are available with clamp true fit mentions a secure clam fit along with a colossal holding capacity.
How QD Bushing is Different from Taper Bushing?
QD bushing that is also known as flange bushing. There are certain differences between Tapper bushing and QD bushing. The primary difference between the two types of the bushing is the existence of flange in QD bushing. The QD style has a flange around the outside diameter whereas, in the case of taper lock, the bushing has the straight sides on the outside diameter.
QD bushing uses the external hex to drive it into the bore of the component that has been installed. In the case of tapper bushing, the internal head cap screw is used to drive it into the bore that has been installed. The use of external hex by QD bushing helps to get larger bore capacity than that is availed in tapper lock bushing.
The difference between the QD bushing and taper bushing is mainly due to the existence of an external key. This helps QD bushing to have great torque carrying capability.
In order to pick the right type of coupling, you should understand the differences properly. And that’s why we prepared this brief yet informative difference set for you. It will help you to understand the functions better with us.
