These thrust screw assemblies allow straight line static load thrust without transmitting torsional or radial force on to the contact area. The free floating ball design allows the thrust screw to continue to rotate while the ball remains stationary against the contact surface. Ideal for irregular shaped or contoured applications. The housing is made from alloy steel, heat treated to Rc 43/46 with a black oxide finish. The replaceable ball is held in place with a viton O-ring which keeps contaminants out and allows the ball to swivel. The abrasive surface is permanently fused to a 300 series stainless steel pad. The surface texture is comparable to a 100 grit abrasive. They are ideal for holding smooth or slippery applications with a minimum of clamping pressure. Individual diamond particles transfer holding pressure to a very small and well distributed area, providing superior holding with minimal surface marking. The diamond surface provides unparalleled wear resistance. Replacement balls and O-rings can be ordered separately.
GripShape Finger Blanks are a fast and convenient option for creating a custom gripper design. Save machining time by starting with these gripper finger blanks and customize to match workpiece shape and application needs.
