Self-aligning pads with O-ring

Description

Material
Body carbon steel.
Ball:
Form C, F tool steel.
Form K POM.
Form O stainless steel diamond impregnated.
Form P stainless steel with polyurethane face.
Version
Body tempered, black oxidised.
Ball:
Form C, F hardened, black oxidised.
Form K POM ball, white.
Form O surface comparable to 100 grade abrasive grit.
Form P polyurethane, hardness 60 Shore.
Note
Self-aligning pads are used to support and clamp unmachined and machined workpieces.
They also serve as stops, supports and thrust pads in fixtures and toolmaking.

Ball secured against rotation.

Form O: The abrasive diamond surface is fused firmly to the ball. It is ideally suited to supporting smooth or slippery applications with a minimum of clamping pressure. This allows the diamond particles to get a firm grip on a very small area with minimum damage to the surface. The diamond surface offers excellent wear resistance.

Form P: The polyurethane surface is permanently vulcanised on the ball. It is abrasion-resistant and does not discolour. Offers optimum protection against damage to delicate surfaces. The pearl-like surface gives a firm grip and allows air to escape so as to prevent any suction effect between the contact surface and the self-aligning pads.
Advantages
The built-in O-ring holds the ball in place and keeps dirt and foreign particles out ensuring smooth and even movement.
