FRICTION CONNECTION ELEMENTS
In connecting parts, designers are often faced with the challenge of transmitting high forces and torques in a confined space while minimizing production and assembly costs.
EKagrip® friction shim satisfy these apparently contradictory requirements. They have a proven track record as superior connecting elements in Formula 1 racing and other motor sports. They can also benefit a wide range of applications in the automotive industry, mechanical engineering and various other industries.
The outstanding properties of EKagrip® shims are:
- Secure and durable frictional connection
- Increase of the forces and torques that can be transmitted up to a factor of 4
- High power density with minimum weight
- Easy assembly and disassembly
EKagrip® friction shims consist of metal shims with an electroless nickel matrix containing embedded diamond particles. These shims are the cutting-edge connection technology for transmitting extreme loads....more
