Woodruff Keys

Woodruff keys, also called half-moon keys, are commonly found in machine tools and automotive applications. They are designed to be installed deep into a shaft and remain firmly embedded. This allows the key to withstand great strain and is not prone to rolling over in the key seat like ordinary machine keys. They are often used to avoid milling a key seat near stress concentration prone shaft shoulders at the end of a shaft.
