What does a tolerance adjuster do?

December 20, 2016

Tolerance Adjuster is a mechanism designed to bridge tolerances automatically. The tolerance clip is positioned between the two components that are to be connected. The components are aligned in axial direction to the screw connection.

Tolerance Adjuster is clipped to one of the components. A connecting bolt is inserted into the hole of the first component and through the Tolerance Adjuster tolerance clip to the thread of the second component.

The Tolerance Adjuster spring clip generates friction engagement between the connecting bolt and Tolerance Adjuster, extending the tolerance clip, thus reducing the space between the two components until the surfaces meet. Any tolerances are therefore completely eliminated. The connecting bolt is then tightened with no component deformation.

Tolerance Adjuster can only be extended as far as the existing distance between the two components or as far as its maximum extension length. The system has been designed to prevent the components from separating, so allowing a production process with oscillating conveyor systems.

The size and the adjust range of the Tolerance Adjuster tolerance clip can be designed to correspond to customer requirements.

Tolerance Adjuster simplifies the production process thus saving time and costs.
