Our direct supply chain to Martin Sprockets factories gets a wider range of QD Bushings delivered at the proper time at the right price.
Taper bushing are widely used as well as sprockets, v-belt pulleys, timing pulleys, coupling and other mechanical parts with taper bore connections.
Taper bushing series are made from high quality engineered components with great tolerance. The feature can be easy to make use of and needs no additional alteration. These bushings can match almost all sorts of assemblies and sizes. They are the best choice in style for mechanical connections.
No costly re-boring: full range of both metric and imperial obtainable.
Standard range fits up to 125mm/5″ shafts & Hub diameter required depends upon the application.
Complete short reach range obtainable, for compact light-weight assemblies & Clean, Compact Design.
Simple installation and removal.

The original sheave and pulley mounting program developed to facilitate installation and substitute of components.
The QD (Quick Detachable) design offers both conventional (flange outboard) and reverse (flange inboard) mounting configurations.
1. Be sure the tapered cone surfaces of the bushing and the inside of the driven product are clean and free from anti-seize lubricants.
2. Slide QD bushing on shaft, flange end first. Assemble key.
3. Placement QD bushing on shaft. Tighten set screw over key “hands tight” with standard Allen wrench only. Do not use excessive force.
4. Slide large end of sheave or sprocket taper bore into position over cone aligning drilled bolt holes in sheave or sprocket with tapped holes in flange of bushing. Assemble pull-up bolts and lock washers.
Notice: Install M thru S bushings in the hub so that both extra holes in the hub are located as far as possible from the bushing’s saw cut.
5. Tighten pull-up bolts alternately and evenly to tightness indicated in torque desk on back. Do not use extensions on wrench handles. There should be a gap between your face of the sheave or sprocket hub and the flange of the QD bushing to insure a satisfactory cone grip and press fit.
CAUTION: THIS GAP SHOULD NOT BE CLOSED.
Use a tapered or QD bushing from Ever-Power with sheaves, pulleys, sprockets and several other power transmission applications. Flanged quick-disconnect bushings feature a completely split style to help provide easy installation and disassembly. A tapered bushing with straight edges uses an interior screw to help drive the bushing into the shaft, while a split taper has a flange and an integral on the bushing to help provide more drive.
QD bushings (” and metric sizes) have a flanged style and show a 4° taper with typical or reverse mounting. They are stocked in popular finished bore sizes and minimal plain bore for customized reboring.
Many people refer to both types as a “taper lock” because they both use the tapered wedging action to lock to the shaft. The taper bushing, with it’s straight sides, uses a set screw to operate a vehicle the bushing into the bore of the component becoming set up (sheave, sprocket, etc.). Be careful when installing these screws. The holes with threads on the bushing are for removal just. Also be aware that the looks of a flange externally of the bushing doesn’t indicate it’s a QD design. Split Taper bushing also has a flange, and the two are not interchangeable. The QD design has a split that continues through the flange. The Metal QD (Quick Disconnect) Type bushing offers versatile and easy set up while providing exceptional holding power. QD Bushings are utilized thought out the industry offering convenience and design versatility. They are precision machined of quality Steel and are installed by tightening many cap screws. This draws the bushing into the taper bore of the merchandise which compresses the bore of the bushing. QD bushings are often removed utilizing the cap screws as jack-screws. Double drilled holes are furnished in QD Bushings permitting installation of product in the conventional or reverse positions. This enables cap screws to be installed through product hub or bushing flange whichever can be most convenient. A significant benefit in set up, cap screws are usually inserted from the outside where they are often accessible. QD Bushings are available from share with all well-known bores within the number of every size bushing.
QD Bushings feature a split tapered flange with the split central to the flange and taper. They are applied to sprockets, sheaves, and pulleys where more clamping force is necessary over standard bored-to-size bushings. Quick-Disconnect Bushings are crucial for mounting v-belt drives, synchronous belt drives and roller chain drives.
