Grey-black, matte finish.
|Features and applications||
Flat adjustable handle, open configuration to avoid any deposit of unhygienic residues or scraps and dirt.<BR>Particularly suitable when the lever turning angle is limited owing to lack of space.<BR>Compared to other types of adjustable handles with metal retaining screw this solution offers:<BR>- absolute electric insulation for the operator's hand<BR>- no visible steel parts subject to rust<BR>- more comfortable lever release.
|Instructions of use||
For clamping, lift the lever to disengage the clamping device toothing and bring it back to start position. By releasing the lever, the return spring automatically engages the toothing.
Glass-fibre reinforced polyamide based (PA) technopolymer. Resistant to solvents, oils, greases and other chemical agents.

Adjustable handles are generally used for repetitive clamping operations sometimes with very high-frequency. <BR>Therefore, the stress resistance (i.e. the resistance to repeated tightening cycles) of the handle unit is particularly important and, especially, the strength of the toothed element which transmits the tightening force from the handle to the threaded element (boss or stud). <BR>In fact, the results of several laboratory tests, perfomed with a special instrument that simulates the most severe use conditions, have shown that e.g. MRT.80 adjustable handle can withstand without yielding more than 100,000 tightening cycles, under the action of a force of 490 N (see graphic). <BR>The special glass-fibre reinforced technopolymer enables the ELESA adjustable handles to guarantee stress resistance values which are much higher than the ones generated under normal working conditions.
