Sparkfun's plastic shaft spacers are designed with precision to offer optimum performance. They come with an inner diameter of 12.7mm and a thickness of 1.59mm. These spacers are particularly useful for creating a gap between a bearing and a shaft collar, thus minimizing metal to metal contact.
These shaft spacers from Sparkfun can be used in a wide range of applications. They are perfect for use in robotics and machine parts, where the reduction of metal to metal contact can significantly extend the lifespan of the components. Additionally, they can serve as buffers, protecting delicate parts from wear and tear in high friction environments.
The unique properties of Sparkfun's shaft spacers make them a valuable addition to any project. They are made from durable plastic, ensuring longevity and resistance to damage. Their precise dimensions allow for an exact fit, improving the efficiency and reliability of the mechanism they are used in. Furthermore, their easy installation and removal make them a convenient choice for regular maintenance and replacements.
