Adjustable clamping levers are ideal for clamping parts in confined spaces. Levers are an assembly comprised of a handle, spring, serration, inlay, and a threaded stud or threaded hole. Ruland adjustable clamping levers replace both metric hardware (M3-M16) and inch hardware (1/4”-5/8”) in applications where tools are not desirable or convenient. Users lift the adjustable hand lever to turn it in either direction and release the handle to anchor it in a new position, significantly reducing the time it takes to reposition components on a shaft. The handles on Ruland adjustable clamping levers range from 30mm-108mm long and are available in a lightweight glass fiber reinforced thermoplastic and a durable die cast zinc with a powder coated finish. The inserts, screws, and springs are made of either stainless steel or steel with a blackened finish. The stainless steel components hold up well in harsh, corrosive environments while the blackened steel components are ideal in applications that require a lot of holding power.
Ruland CNC tool shelves fit into existing 13” machine tool rail mount systems and are designed to organize 5C, 30 taper and 40 taper collets or hand tools such as air guns, mallets, and brushes. Organization is a major source of wasted time and money on a shop floor. These CNC tool shelves eliminate the need for machinists to leave collets and hand tools on workbenches, carts or other surfaces around their machine.
Made from 16 gage steel with custom sized plastic inserts for proper tool fit and protection from damage, shelves can be moved from one machine to another without disassembly and make great set-up trays. Each shelf is capable of holding up to 40 lbs and is durable enough to withstand harsh manufacturing environments that use water based coolant or oil. If the machine does not have existing rails they can be purchased from Ruland to create a custom mounting system that fits most CNC lathes and mills.
Ruland indexing plungers are spring-loaded mechanisms designed to lock devices for adjustable positioning. They are commonly used in industrial equipment for positioning and holding, in gym equipment for height adjustments, in machine guard doors to prevent them from being opened accidentally, and much more. Indexing plungers are comprised of a plastic knob, a hardened steel plunger pin, an internal spring, a black oxide steel threaded body, and a black oxide steel lock nut. The components in the precision indexing plunger use the force in the spring to apply pressure allowing the plunger pin to remain nested in a hole or other receptacle. Thus, two or more elements of equipment can be aligned or fixed into a determined relative position. Ruland indexing plungers feature a pull knob that partially encloses the top of the plunger body, allowing less debris to enter the mechanism. Options with lock-out are available for applications where the plunger pin must not protrude continually. Indexing plungers are offered in three inch sizes: 3/8” – 16 TPI, ½” – 13 TPI, and 5/8” – 11 TPI and three metric sizes: M10x1.0, M12X1.5, and M16X1.5.
Mini indexing plungers are designed for use in thin walled sheet metal applications. They are made of a plastic knob, zinc plated steel body, 301 stainless steel spring, and 303 stainless steel plunger pin. The plungers are positioned by holding the knurled knob and retracting the pin. Once the pin is retracted, the spanner flats on the lock nut are revealed and the precision mini indexing plunger can be tightened with an open end wrench. They are available with or without the lock-out feature and come in inch (5/16”-24 TPI) and metric (M8X1.0-M16X1.5) sizes.
Keystock is used to provide driving torque between two moving parts. They are often used in conjunction with a coupling to allow for higher torque capabilities in the application and prevent slippage on the shaft. Ruland keystock is supplied in 12” (300mm) lengths allowing the user to cut it down to the appropriate size for their application. They have a plus tolerance to assure tight fit with the keyway for positive, zero backlash power transmission. Ruland keystock is straight type with square pre-cut keys. They are available in zinc plated steel for higher torque applications as well as stainless steel for corrosive environments. Ruland keystock is US manufactured and RoHS compliant.
