Bosch Rexroth is introducing a new range of modular heavy-duty connectors, bringing even greater versatility to the use of machine frames made from aluminium strut profiles.
Complementing Bosch Rexroth’s extensive existing line-up, the new 180×180 dynamic load connectors have undergone extensive testing by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft for the safe absorption of both high static and dynamic loads. They increase the deployable radius across a broad spectrum of applications and form an additional module for the implementation of needs-based machine frames.
The use of the new connectors is both simple and versatile: a connector can be applied at any position, making processing of individual strut profiles unnecessary. Connectors are also available for 90×90, 90×180 and 90×360 focus profiles, with the fastening set available as an accessory.
During design and set-up, users are supported by a calculation program integrated into the Rexroth MTpro planning software, which is suitable for the planning and design of the complete assembly.
The plastic cover cap and cover profile range has also been extended, with users able to select from black units for their ESD conductivity – suitable for electronic applications – or grey variants for a restrained overall appearance to enable a focus on customer-specific design elements.
