As the method of shaft fixing by Taper Locking has
become more popular within the UK and Europe,
then the demand for adaptation or conversion of
various products to take a Taper bush has increased
hence the demand for a range of products for this
This Steel range of Weld in Hubs have been design
for welding to any other Steel product such a Roller
Chain Platewheels, there are two main design
types WM & WH both are fairly similar the
only difference being the WM series is generally they
have a bigger flange diameter than the WH series.
We offer both so as to cover the entire range of Taper
Bush sizes including the newer short versions bushes
now on the market! This product can be purchased as
a stand alone product for customer own conversion or
we do also offer a Re-machining Service to convert
some of our Pilot Bore Drive Products to Taper locking type!
Hence to compliment our own ranges some drive products can be requested with a add on Service, for which the Boring and Welding in of one of these Hubs is just one, for details please ask our Sale department?
