Spindle locking knobs for radial feeding applications

Share This Post

Fixtureworks, a supplier of workholding and fixturing technologies, now offers One-Touch Clamping Knobs that enable secure locking of a spindle with one-touch action.

These spindle locking knobs are perfect for radial feeding applications (e.g. rack and pinion—roller does not move) and thrust feeding applications (e.g. leadscrew).

The main feature of these knobs is that they enable secure locking and unlocking of spindles with single one-touch operation and without the use of tools. The knobs provide ergonomic comfort and secure holding. Red and blue colors on the knob indicate whether spindle is locked or unlocked. Red indicates caution and unsafe to operate the machine, visible blue indicates that machine can safely operate in locked mode. A perceptible “click” alert when locking and unlocking the spindle helps notify the user. The housing, boss and base of the knobs are made from plastic and come in either orange or black colors. The insert is made from 304 stainless steel and the package includes one stainless steel socket head cap screw and one stainless steel cup point socket head setscrew.

They are available in 40 mm diameter and 43 mm depth.  By pulling the housing until it clicks, the teeth of the knob disengage from the base. Turn the knob to rotate the spindle. By pushing the housing until it clicks, the teeth engage again and lock the rotation of the spindle.

The Fixtureworks spindle locking knobs are ideal for adjustments of film tension on printing machine, sensor camera position (lead screw application) and adjustments of shooter angle on conveyors to name a few.  

In addition to One-Touch Clamping/Locking knobs, Fixtureworks also offers pneumatic swing clamps, retractable fasteners, adjustable torque handles and knobs,  myriad workholding components and fixturing accessories including workholding supports, pneumatic flex actuator clamps, nutrunner clamps, quick change pneumatic clamping fasteners, quick action sliding locks spring plunger clamps as well as handles and levers, knobs and grips, equipment handles,
