Support clamp for the building up of machine protections
August 04, 2017 11:11
Elesa+Ganter has recently introduced the new PPR support clamps, joining the already existing PC series. PPR is suitable for assembly of panels or electro-welded mesh on 25 mm square-section profiles.
One of the main advantages offered by PPR series is no panel drilling for mounting.
PPR support clamps are made of glass-fibre reinforced polyamide SUPER-technopolymer, black or grey colour RAL 7040. SUPER-technopolymer is one of the latest evolution in engineering polymer materials characterised by high mechanical and thermal performance. A new technopolymer combining favourably the advantages of engineering plastics with metal ones, while guaranteeing high stress, wear and corrosion resistance.
The support clamps can come in three standard executions: without (PPR) or with (PPR-A) NBR vibration-damping elements, which ensure perfect locking even in the presence of strong vibrations and for the mounting of electro-welded mesh (PPR-R). The two separate bodies are assembled by an AISI 304 stainless steel screw and nut included in the package.
The opening slot between the panel and the profile measures only 7,5 mm, making the PPR suitable to build up machine protections in compliance to the Safety Standards even where the danger zone is close to the panel.
