An excellent example of our specialist capability is displayed in the development of the axial tensioner ETP-UNIGRIP which was developed to be used within a packaging machine. The application was to secure circular cutting knives which where originally held in place with spacers and multi-bolt mechanical shaft clamping devices. The mechanical method employed prior to the ETP UNIGRIP was both incredibly time consuming and required a high degree of skilled maintenance to ensure correct cutting blade position. The ETP-UNIGRIP was developed to expand three pins axially on the flank of the spacer to ensure continuous axial clamping against a shoulder.
