Key Kits

Key kits are sets that contain multiple keys, like feather keys and woodruff keys, in varying different sizes. Keys are machine elements that connect the rotating part of a device to the shaft. They prevent relative rotations between parts and can allow transmission of torque.

In order for keys to function, the part they are connecting to must have a keyway and keyseat, which are a slot and a pocket, respectively. As a whole, the system is called a keyed joint.

Applications of key kits

Devices that use keyed joints include gears, pulleys, couplings and washers. Essentially, keys are used to facilitate movement between parts.

  • Woodruff keys are semicircular and fit into a circular keyway. They are often used in machine tools.
  • Feather keys are square, with a radiused end, and they transmit torque to the moving component
