Diamond or polyurethane?
Self-aligning pads from norelem: It depends on the surface
Self-aligning pads are preferred as stops, supports and thrust pads in fixtures and toolmaking. Raw and unmachined as well as machined workpieces can be supported and clamped with these positioning aids, which are available in numerous sizes, versions and with different surfaces. Depending on the task, choice of the correct surface is sometimes critical. norelem now offers self-aligning pads with either polyurethane or diamond impregnated surfaces in its product range.
Self-aligning pads from norelem are as versatile as there are fields of application. Since different tasks in tool and die making and machine construction may have very special requirements for the support and clamping surfaces, norelem has two new types of self-aligning pads in its programme.
Self-aligning pads with a wear-resistant and non-colouring polyurethane surface offer the best protection against damage to sensitive surfaces and permit high holding forces. The polyurethane layer is vulcanised securely to the ball. Its pearl-like structure allows the compressed air to escape eliminating any suction between the contact surface and self-aligning pad.
Self-aligning pads with an abrasive diamond surface are used especially to support smooth or slippery objects. The diamond layer is bonded securely to the ball. These self-aligning pads require only minimal clamping force since the fine diamond particles apply high holding forces over a very small area with minimal damage of the object's surface.
norelem offers both types with permanent contact surfaces, with replaceable contact surface inserts, with height adjustment as well as models with an internal hex socket. These toggle locators are manufactured from high-grade steel and come with an O-ring. The O-ring keeps the ball in its place and prevents dirt and foreign particles from entering.
Self-aligning pads from norelem are available from stock from the Web-Shop or the catalogue in the usual sizes and shapes.
