Eighty years is a long time to be in business, and at Ruland we are proud to have reached that milestone in 2017. It all began in 1937 when 20-year-old Fred F. Ruland bought two screw machines at a junkyard for $50 each and merged the parts into a working unit.
In the mid-1970s the decision was made to devote all of their expertise to a product line, shaft collars and couplings. They had been making these products for nearly 40 years on a custom basis and had already developed a number of proprietary processes to ensure that they met application requirements. Soon, Ruland was known for having the best looking, best performing shaft collars and rigid couplings available.
Innovation and careful manufacturing continued thereafter and more proprietary processes such as special surface treatments, anti-vibration coupling hardware, and precision honing were developed to improve product appearance and performance. Product line expansion and a commitment to same day delivery led to a reputation for availability and service.
Their commitment to the values which brought 80 years of excellence continues. In the past several years we have expanded our line of metric shaft collars and added metric rigid couplings, step bore rigid couplings, and motion control couplings. All of these products are thoughtfully designed and carefully made in the tradition that makes us proud.
1. Shaft Collar- Ruland is a domestic manufacturer of shaft collars in multiple styles to fit shafts ranging from 1/8 to 6" and 3mm to 150mm. Shaft collars play a critical role in most industrial equipment, where they are used for guiding, spacing, locating, component alignment, and axial stopping. Ruland shaft collars are trusted in thousands of applications worldwide to o Ruland is a domestic manufacturer of shaft collars in multiple styles to fit shafts ranging from 1/8 to 6" and 3mm to 150mm.

2. Rigid Coupling- Rigid shaft couplings are available with or without keyways in one- and two-piece and set screw designs. Straight and step bore type rigid couplings are standard products for shafts ranging from 1/8" to 2" and 3mm to 50mm. Inch to metric conversion couplings are available by special order.
3. Servo Coupling- Ruland offers servo couplings in rigid, beam, bellows, curved jaw, disc, and oldham types allowing the user to select the coupling that best fits their application. All Ruland couplings are zero-backlash and manufactured in our Marlborough, MA factory.
