Zimmer Clamping & Braking Elements for Linear Guides, a solution for maximum fixing power with the smallest construction form. These clamping elements are mounted between 2 blocks on a rail to provide a means of solidly locking the load to the rail. The benefit is that this clamping action does not take place on the bearing surface of the rail therefore preventing any damage to the rail at the clamp points.
Zimmer Clamping Elements have many practical applications in industry. They are particularly suited to holding a load on the z-axis or other vertical applications. In the event of a power failure, a spring-loaded model can clamp the load in a safe condition. They are also ideal for positioning a load in multi-positions on a rail without damage to the bearing surface.
