The support element is used to support overdetermined clamping points on components.
The benefits of the support element are:
Support for unstable components
Eliminates tool vibration during machining
Supports ribs, beads and shackles, for reinforcement of clamped components
Distortion-free support of raw parts
Aluminium, red anodised
Case hardened steel, nitrided, manganese phosphate treated and ground
Fix the support element (2 x M 6 thread) onto the device. Pay attention to the operator's side!
Alternative: Dismantle the M 12 x 10 threaded pin and replace it by an M 12 x 30 threaded pin and assemble the support element with a wrench (WS 21), e.g. for T-slot mounting (no defined operator's side ensured). Threaded pin M 12 x 30 and T-nut DIN 508 M 12 x 14, quality 10, are part of the standard supply volume.
Lowering of the support element by 16 mm is possible.
By turning the clamping cam (WS 6 internal hexagon) on the outer surface of the red protective sleeve, the support pin contacts the workpiece with a slight spring load.
By turning on (15 Nm) as far as possible (lock), total of 180°, the clamping mechanism locks the support pin without moving. The support element has been placed onto the workpiece and locked.
If turned in the opposite direction (unlock), the clamping is released. If turned back as far as possible, i.e. total of 180° the support pin moves to the end position.
For safe functioning, the thread bore M 12 must always be closed.
Additional flexible possibility of fitting with holding plate 23210.0740.
In the M 8 threaded pin on the support bolt various locating and seating pins (EH 22...) can be mounted. Custom-made extensions can also be fitted.
The clamping height can be increased using height adjusting cylinders EH 23310. and with spacers EH 1107. and EH 1108.
