Electric locking bolt mechanism re-engineered for greater value
13 August 2018
Magnet Schultz Ltd (MSL) has re-engineered its G SC X series of shotbolts. To create this new-generation mechanism, MSL has deployed modular coils proven across a wide range of its solenoid products to enable the use of efficient assembly techniques.
The coil adopted for the new generation G SC X series is common to many of the company’s products. In particular, it is used extensively in high-volume manufacturing of solenoids for the hydraulic sector. The innovative cartridge design simply slides in to the component’s stainless-steel body, allowing faster manufacturing that reduces lead times.
As a result of this mass-manufacturing optimisation, Magnet Schultz Ltd has been able to reduce the price of the G SC X model range. The shotbolts are rated to IP40 as standard, with IP65 variants including wiper seals on the actuator as an option. All models feature maintenance-free bearings.
