Every joint rod performs pretty much the same tasks, whether it is used as a tie bar system in structural steel engineering, as a system linkage rod for construction machinery or as a turnbuckle for special vehicles:
Two elements have to be connected to one another and the required forces have to be continuously transferred. As for all moving applications, it is important that the parts are low-wearing and durable. In addition, when the product is installed, it should be possible to compensate for play by adjusting it with millimetre precision or by readjusting it as required in permanent operation.
The absolutely precise configuration of the joint rod in combination with the specific parts to be connected therefore brings about considerable advantages. For example, installation times can be reduced enormously and process costs kept low throughout the entire organisation due to simplified article management.
But how to exploit these potentials effectively without having to put in so much design work up front that all the savings have been cancelled out by the high information requirements?
Online joint rod configurator
mbo Osswald joint rod configurator works online and with no loss of time to create custom-built units, provide information about functional dimensions, indicate prices and delivery times. It can also send orders directly to mbo manufacturing plants – eliminating the usual friction losses that occur during conventional offer and order processing. Users of this tool also benefit from online advantages compared to the conventional order process, such as:
- Batch size 1
- Immediate information about availability and delivery times
- Product-specific price advantages
- No minimum quantity surcharges
Usability, intuitive operation and the integration of 50 years of experience in the field of linking technology were our guiding lights during the development of the configurator in order to make your life a little easier.
