    A mechanical shaft key typically is zinc-plated, constructed from steel, and feature rounded edges to make them easier to fit into keyways.

    Shaft seats and hub keyways may be used to transfer torque in power transmission assemblies by installing machinery keys between them.

    Despite their simple construction, a round shaft key is an essential component in any power transmission.

    It is common practice to use the words machine keys and shaft keys synonymously when referring to the same object.

    A piece of metal known as a square shaft key is used in the process of attaching a component of a spinning machine to the shaft.

    The use of a square machine key stops the two pieces from rotating relative to one another, which opens the door for torque transfer to take place.

    In order for shaft keys to work effectively, it is necessary for the rotating parts such as coupler, gear and pulley, as well as the shaft itself to have a keyway and a keyseat.

    Machinery keys have two parts: one portion goes into a pre-cut hole in the shaft known as a key seat and the other part goes into a groove in the hub known as a keyway.

    The whole of the structure is referred to as a keyed joint. A keyed joint may provide relative axial movement between components.

    There is a wide variety of materials that may be used to make shaft keys, and these machinery keys also come in a wide variety of forms and sizes.

    Steel is the most popular material for square shaft key form, which is often rectangular or tapered.
