New profile connector system delivers substantial cuts in assembly time

04 March 2020

Machine builders can save up to 70% on framework assembly time with an all-new profile connector system from FATH Components.

New profile connectors from FATH can dramatically reduce assembly and disassembly time

According to David Hayes, Managing Director of FATH UK, “The new connector design is set to transform assembly times from here on”.

FATH’s new range, Alu Connection Angles M, is designed to help users effect substantial time savings in the assembly of most typical machine frameworks. This is due to a combination of its design and the use of magnet technology in its (patent-pending) new connector block. 

Now, with locking screws a thing of the past and the need to handle separate parts like T-nuts, users only need a single tool to construct an entire aluminium section framework in,
quite literally in some cases, double-quick time. Magnet technology holds the rhombus fasteners inside the connector and the complete connector unit is supplied pre-assembled and ready for instant use (and endless re-use too).

Magnet technology holds the rhombus fasteners precisely in position, providing fuss-free single tool installation

Additionally, the design of the Alu Connection Angles M means that it also acts as reinforcement for corner joints, allowing higher moment loads to be accommodated without the need for (and cost of) extra machining of the profiles. For a professional-looking finish, users can fit standard FATH cover caps, in either grey or black, which simply clip in.

FATH’s new Alu Connection Angles M is available ex-stock, and there are designs to fit both 40mm and 80mm sections. Commenting on the arrival of the new connectors, David Hayes says “This new product is about two things more than anything else: time-saving during assembly/disassembly and providing additional, cost-free, structural strength where corners are formed”.
