With their new Diamond Cut design Elesa are taking their MBT series knurled knobs into a new area of tactile control, enabling fine operation of machines, instruments and similar, in sizes from large – 70mm diameter – down to small, at 31mm diameter.
The carefully designed diamond knurling on the outside rim of the knob – provided with a structure of very fine pitch – allows a safe and comfortable grip, offering the user the possibility of operating under the most difficult working conditions in a sensitive and ergonomic way, while simplifying the adjustment of the knob during rapid rotation without any awkward angular movement for the hand or wrist.
Manufacture of both male and female versions is in high-resilience polypropylene based (PP) technopolymer, which is resistant to solvents, oils, greases and other chemical agents. Colour indexing in the centre boss of the knob is also available to code with machine colour schemes or to identify functionality.
