Axial joint with sealing cap
Angle joints in accordance with DIN 71802 serve as linking and guide elements for moving parts and create corner joints. These standard parts are not always sufficient for the design, particularly when the force is to be transmitted linearly. Specifically designed for this application, the axial joint represents a special solution in the field of angle joints in accordance with DIN 71802. The absorbed forces are converted not at an angle of 90°, but instead in the form of a 180° variant, i.e. linearly. The possible pivoting angle, comparable with DIN 71802, is ±18°, the withdrawal forces for the ball stud from the ball socket range, depending on the size, between min. 30 and max. 100 N.
The axial joints are available in the dimensions M5 to M16.
For problematic environmental conditions (dust, lubricants) there are special axial joints with sealing cap available. The space between axial ball socket and ball stud is enclosed and sealed with a sealing cap - the best protection against damage caused by environmental influences. The sealing caps are made from chloroprene and can be used in a temperature range from -30°C to +110°C (for short periods up to +140°C).
Axial joints can be supplied in all standard versions with a sealing cap and are also available in steel or stainless steel.
