Two function clamping in one !
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....
