Matara launches new linear rail and shaft clamping elements

21 May 2021

Matara UK Ltd has launched a new range of linear rail and shaft clamping elements designed and produced in-house and exclusive to Matara.

Designed to complement its linear rail and linear shafting products, the new Matara clamping elements are aimed at machine builders who require their machinery to perform key positioning, braking and holding tasks. The shafting type suits diameters from Ø12 to Ø60, with the linear rail units suitable for linear rails from nine to 65.

The Matara linear rail and shaft clamping elements range features both manual and pneumatic clamps

The manual clamps – the FRCMAN series of Linear Manual Rail Clamping Elements and the FRCCMAN LT Manual Clamping Element for Round Bars Light Line – provide simple yet reliable manually controlled clamping. They feature an adjustable locking lever where the contact sections press with sync on the surfaces of the rail. For maximum effect, the floating profiles of contact ensure a symmetrical distribution of the force on the linear guide. 

The pneumatic clamping elements – the FRC series of Linear Rail Clamping and the FRCC Pneumatic Clamping Element for Round Bars – use the air from the machine’s pneumatic system in place. The FRC series is available as single or double acting to allow customers to choose how they want the clamps to operate, making them suitable for a very wide range of applications, including material handling, and printing and packaging applications. Furthermore, they can also be used as a failsafe on vertical applications; if there is a failure in the pneumatic system and the air is shut off, the clamp automatically locks the load in position for added safety

The new Matara linear rail and shaft clamping elements provide positional accuracy with a high holding force, are easy to install and use, and are competitively priced. The FRCMAN and the FRC series have the added benefit of a space saving ergonomic design and can be used on any manufacturers’ linear rail, making them highly versatile.

As the new Matara linear rail and shaft clamping elements are designed and built in the UK, they are readily available with a high UK stock holding resulting in low lead times and, in the event of a machine breakdown, reduced downtime for customers. 

For maximum convenience, the products are directly interchangeable with Zimmer equivalents.
