Adjustable Ball Foot 8 80x40
Where cell guards or enclosures are floor mounted, rather than fitted to a machine structure, then provision needs to be made in many cases to accommodate uneven floors or general level irregularities.
The adjustable ball foot mounting from the Item range available from Machine Building Systems has been designed for this purpose.
It is fitted to a rigid upright and can be used with both the line 6 and line 8 profiles in the Item range, and comprises a black zinc die-casting which incorporates a ball socket on the underside.
A mating circular steel ring is used which provides +/-4° of rotational inclination which is sufficient to counter local variations on most flooring.
The single floor fixing hole provided also allows up to 6mm of horizontal movement of the foot which can be used for positioning before being tightened.
This eliminates the need for accurate drilling of location holes in concrete, which can be a difficult operation on site.
Once the uprights are installed, it is a simple matter to then hang the prefabricated panels on them using proprietary components in the Item range.
Minor variations in position and angular settings are allowed for in the method of construction, with panels interchanged on site without machining.
An entire cell guarding system can be easily installed by one person in a few hours.
