Considerations to Keep in Mind When Buying Keystock Material

It is critical that keystock be sized correctly and sit tightly within the mating keyway to prevent rotation. It is also important that the Keystock material be the same strength and hardness as the key shaft to prevent failure and ultimate damage of the device assembly. The material and configuration you choose will depend on several factors, including:
  • Load capacity
  • Corrosion resistance
  • Tolerance
  • Cross-sectional accuracy
  • Geometry & fit
