Tube connectors are flexible, quick and easy to use
Following on from the successful acceptance of four aluminium tube connector models with a size 30 integrated ball joint on the market, three more variants with a ball joint are now complementing the Solid Clamps series. Size 18 base, angle and hinge clamps are the new additions to the range. The series of Light Clamps has also been expanded. Four new plastic tube connectors with ball joints, also size 18, are now available to complement the product range. In addition to the variants mentioned above, this also includes a sleeve clamp.
All the new ball clamps have a universal connecting plate that can be rotated 360° to ensure flexible connection and feature two slotted holes and two threads. The connecting plates’ pivoting range is 60° in each case. The clamping elements can be freely adjusted and easily fixed. This makes them ideal for the construction of flexible tube structures, as well as for mounting sensors, reflectors and other elements that need to be precisely aligned or readjusted more frequently, depending on the production requirements and product. A special surface coating on the ball joint makes for a high-strength clamping connection.
Base clamps are used for plane angle connection. The tube connector can be screwed to machines or frames, for example. Components can be fastened directly to the screw surface of the ball joint and set individually.

Sleeve clamps are used for axial connections. Sleeve tube connectors can be used to extend tubes, for example. In combination with the new ball joints, components can now also be fastened to the tube end and positioned flexibly.

The basic function of the sleeve clamp is used for this purpose. However, two sleeve tube connectors are connected by a double ball joint. This combination makes for tube constructions which can be set very flexibly, and thus represents a genuine alternative to conventional welded constructions.

The joint of the tube connector is designed with toothing and can thus be pivoted by 180° in 15° steps. The introduced ball joint now makes for even more degrees of freedom with adjustment.
