Cross Clamping Pieces are Key to Modular Vacuum Equipment Construction

Suction Plate Clamping Pieces

In this blog post we will take a closer look at the options available to install suction plates in lifting and handling systems with suction plate clamping pieces.

EUROTECH TAIWAN, is known for its modular construction system when it comes to vacuum components. If it is suction plates, valves, fittings and attachment, you need it, we got it, most of the time suction plates are installed with cross clamping pieces. Over the years we have developed an large range of cross clamping pieces and other attachments for suction plate installation.

BCCP in Aluminum, is an cross clamping piece made in two parts and allows quick installation also on closed frames. Both parts are mounted together with one screw and one star knob screw for easy adjustment within the lifting frame. The front section has the guide tube for the suspension bold which is equipped with 2 guide bushing for smooth and wear free movement of the suspension bolt.

Most of the time suspension bolts with Ø 16 mm or Ø 20 mm are used in handling and stacking systems. Those guide bushes can be replaced after years of use and if needed. We supply those guide bushes either in oil lubricated sinter bronze or in special Polymer compound. There are more than 11 variation of cross clamping pieces are available. Details you will find in our catalogue.

For more heavy duty application we recommend the use of our cross clamping piece in steel. The surface of the cross clamping piece is galvanized and 2 oil soaked sintered bronze bushes are installed. Both half section are hold together with 4 hexagon screw and allow quick installation also on closed frames. The front section has the guide tube for the suspension bold which is equipped with 2 guide bushing for smooth and wear free movement of the suspension bolt.

Most of the time those cross clamping pieces are used with suspension bolts Ø 20 mm in handling systems. The guide bushes can be replaced after years of use and if needed. We supply those guide bushes for those cross clamping piece either in oil lubricated sinter bronze or in special Polymer compound. There are 4 variation available. Details you will find in our catalogue.

Besides the cross clamping piece there is also the aluminum clamping plate set for more heavy duty lifting application and depending the design of the handling system available. The aluminum  clamping plate set consist of an upper and lower aluminum clamping plate, an star know screw with outside thread and 2 oil soaked sinter bronze bush. The sinter bronze bush is secured by means of an circlip and can easy be replaced in case of wear. The clamping plate set is installed between 2 parallel mounted profiles and secured in position be tightening of the star know screw. Details to steel profiles you can use you will find in our catalogue. There are 3 types of aluminum clamping set are available.

For automatic handling and stacking systems very often aluminum construction profiles are used. They are light weight and in high in stability. Depending the type of construction profile used, there are groove in the aluminum profiles which are used to attach our flange plate as example. The groove is used to hold the sliding nut which has an inside thread ( M6 or M8 ). 4 screws are used to attach safely our flange plate against the aluminum construction profile. 

Most of the time those flange plates are used with suction plates and  Ø 20 mm suspension bolts. The guide bushes can be replaced after years of use and if needed.

We supply those guide bushes for those flange plates either in oil lubricated sinter bronze or in special Polymer compound. There are more than 6 variation available. Details you will find in our catalogue.
