New TMB series magnetic plugs

TMB series magnetic plugs from Elesa UK

Our new range of magnetic plugs collect ferrous/magnetic particles inside machinery such as gearboxes, engines, pumps and so on which are subject to wear. Once collected about the magnetic core of the plug these particles are separated from lubricating/hydraulic oil and are thus not able to cause further wear or damage.

TMB series sump plugs feature a powerful AlNiCo (aluminium-nickel-cobalt) magnet to attract these particles and keep them out of circulation where they may then be removed at the next oil change.

TMB plugs are capable of sustaining high tightening torque and may be used even in pressurised reservoirs. They are available in M14 to M42 sizes – also imperial ¼ to 1 ½ in. Operating temperatures with NBR sealing ring are -20° to +100° – and with FKM sealing then from -20° to +180°.

New CMUF 270° adjustable friction hinge

CMUF 270 degree adjustable friction hinge from Elesa UK

Our new CMUF 270° hinge offers a simple way of supporting flaps, panels, hatches and doors in a desired position against the effect of gravity or limited external forces. The CMUF adjustable friction hinge can in some instances negate the need for hatch springs or gas struts. The CMUF allows for simple friction adjustment with use of an axially mounted hex socket screw to suit varying circumstances on enclosures or cabinets.

The braking torque provided by CMUF hinges allows users to set the opening force of the door so that it may stay partially open, or will dampen down the closure.

CMUF hinges are manufactured in tough die cast zinc with technopolymer friction elements. They are available in black or grey to match the housing and in sizes of 40mm, 50mm and 60mm.

Standard Machining Service saves time, eliminates waste, cuts costs

Standard machining service from Elesa UK for machine elements
We are happy to inform customers that we offer a fast turn-around machining service for standard machine elements such as handwheels (2, 3, 4 spoke and solid), also crank handles, clamping knobs with bored insert, as well as 3 arm lobe knobs and tri-lobe knobs which ensures quick and correct fitment to the operating shaft.

This service uses pre-set machining jigs, fixtures and tooling so saves internal time and program disruption costs, as well as ensuring that any mistakes are at no cost to the customer. This simplifies the production process for standard secondary operations such as drill and tap or bore and ream, e.g. to H7 tolerance. The service is applicable to plastic moulded items with insert, or solid, e.g. aluminium or stainless steel which require a keyway, cross-drill and pin or specialist machining such as undercuts or partial threads. There is no minimum quantity (we can do 1 off if required) on standard components and can also apply to outright customised solutions from the Elesa factory in larger quantities.

Consequently, customers receive full machined components, production ready “out of the box” ready to fit, so saving the time taken programming in-house work or sending for outside machining. This unusual service is seen as part of the Elesa commitment to our customers saving time, saving money and ensuring guaranteed quality through the supply/production chain. Contact us with your machining requirements.

New IP65 flush fit compression T bar latch

New IP65 flush fit compression T bar latch from Elesa UK
Our new CSMH is a flush mounting compression latch with pop-out T bar handle that offers IP65 protection from dust and water ingress. Ease of use is provided by the T handle which operates the compression latching over a range adjustable from 13mm to 75mm. This ensures soft closure with the latch itself covered in glass reinforced polyamide to provide added protection for the cabinet paint finish over the operation cycle.

The CSMH is particularly suitable for applications on power generation or HVAC equipment, as well as machine controls and power distribution panels in outdoor situations where it is resilient to bad weather. Clever design thinking has allowed Elesa to include an 8mm padlock hasp facility and a micro-switch mounting to permit remote sensing of the handle position so that its status may be electronically determined, i.e. open or closed. The CSMH is available with single or differing key combinations (up to 400 possibilities).
