Elesa has launched a range of ‘special’ standard components designed to simplify equipment production in the metalworking industry while contributing to equipment operation when installed.

An example of this is the new range of LW.A vibration damping units, which feature natural rubber damping pads built into an adjustable levelling foot design.

They have been designed to damp vibrations, shocks and noise from moving components or non-balanced masses such as lathes and presses.

‘Active’ machine isolation is described as being for vibration-producing equipment such as presses, machine tools and transfer equipment, as well as ‘passive’ isolation, which is aimed at equipment that might be adversely affected by external vibration, such as quality testing, measuring or performance-assessment equipment.

This bi-directional isolation is an important feature of the LW.A levelling elements and is often a feature in the same location.

Sizes of the LW.A damping elements range from 80 to 200m, with maximum static load capacity of 40,000N.

Documentation is available that gives full technical guidance on correct selection to ensure the damping/isolation level required dependant upon frequency of vibration, static load and amplitude/deflection of the equipment.

Elesa’s handle ranges include the M1066 lift and grab handle centred around a 30mm-diameter aluminium or stainless-steel tube.

Available in blind rear mounted (BM) and male stud (FM) versions, the M1066 is expected to find applications on large CNC machine guards, trolleys and inspection hatches.

Double-handled variable-grip positioning is possible with the M1066 to accommodate different sizes and positions of operations.

Standard sizes are 200 to 600mm with six stock lengths.

However, for custom situations (and batch quantities), lengths can be user specified, as can the paint colour.

Standard finish is metalflake expoxy/polyurethane coating with aluminium with reinforced polyamide shanks.

Tube finish can alternatively be in any RAL colour, matt-anodised aluminium or self-finish stainless steel.

Fixing is by standard M8 thread.

Other tubular handles in aluminium from Elesa are configured to the latest style and design concepts, incorporating simple and robust fixing methods.

The M, ETH and GN handles can replace older bent-steel tube handles, which often needed welding in place.

Large-diameter aluminium tube is characterised by its rigidity and tactile feel, in standard or custom lengths.

The Ergostyle ETH variant also features off-the-shelf colour options for end caps and, to meet custom requirements, the tube may be cut to length or bent around corners.

GN426 has a double-curved form that allows offset placement of the hand for safety and convenience.

Typical installations include machine-tool doors and trolleys.

The GN333.5 Tubular Handle in stainless steel is suited for equipment manufacturers.

The GN333.5 provides a 28mm-diameter tube handle grip up to 600mm long, with matt finish and matching handle shanks.

Sealing between them is achieved by an O-ring at the connecting point between the handle and the shanks, which prevents any spray water from entering the tube, reducing the risk of bacterial build up.

Mounting is by means of M8 blind fixing provided in the handle shanks.
