Swivots® are self aligning positioning components, available in three different housing styles – non-threaded base design, hex head design, and full threaded body design. The replaceable ball style Swivots are a modular component system that allows the ball to swivel, tilt, pivot, grip, hold, position, or secure work pieces. The ball rotates 360 degrees and tilts at varying degrees in any direction from the centerline. The ball is held in place with the use of a Viton o-ring, which also keeps dirt and contaminants free from the housing.
The replaceable pad style Swivots features an internal ball cup instead of a solid ball, which allows a replaceable rest pad or serrated gripper to be installed. The interchangeable parts help to speed set ups and changeovers. The replaceable pads allow a user to easily change the pad when worn or when another style pad is needed for an application.
The replaceable balls, rest pads, and gripper assemblies are available in either hardened steel, non-marring delrin, or solid carbide with either a flat or serrated surface.
Thrust screws™ are similar to the Swivot line in that they also utilize the replaceable, swiveling gripper technology. They allow straight-line static thrust load thrust without transmitting torsional or radial forces on to the contact area. The ball is held in place with the use of a Viton o-ring, which also prevents dirt and contaminants from entering the housing. Thrust screws are available in two styles – headed thrust screws and full threaded thrust screws.
