   A new line of heavy-duty steel collars that are slotted to accept flat plate or screws for attachment to pipe and various flat surfaces is being introduced.   Stafford Heavy-Duty Mounting Collars feature wider bodies than conventional shaft collars and are available in three configurations: one has a slot on the bottom, perpendicular to the shaft, which accepts 1/4” plate, one has a slot parallel to the shaft which accepts 1/4” plate, and one has a mounting flat and a 1/2”-13 hole that is counterbored to maintain a smooth bore.    Designed to provide machinery builders with more alternatives when mounting components, Stafford Heavy-Duty Mounting Collars are suitable for new and retrofit applications.  Machined from steel, they range from 5/8” to 1” W, offered in one- and two-piece styles, and come in 3/4” to 3-1/2” I.D. and pipe sizes.  Options include stainless steel and special sizes and hole configurations.•  Feature wider bodies than conventional shaft collars•  One- and two-piece styles•  3/4” to 3-1/2” I.D. and pipe sizes
