Comfort and style amidst the elements

The expected parameters of precision, grip and strength all complement today’s range of high-tech, high-precision manufacturing machinery.

This includes adjustable and lever handles, handwheels, clamp handles, crank handles, pull handles, and handles for special applications, such as instruments and desktop equipment.

With machine components, as with much else, ‘form follows function’ – yet the Elesa Ergostyle range of standard operating elements has sought to go one step further, says the company. Indeed, with its care over operator comfort and safety, Elesa have combined a bit of Italian flair in design.

Notable in the Ergostyle range are the company’s EMW Monospoke handwheels in glass fibre-reinforced polypropylene technopolymer, with soft-touch or fold-away safety handles.

The ERW adjustable handles and ERFW lever handles are especially useful where height restrictions determine the need for a flat lever, rather than an inclined version. They are said to be capable of maintaining performance in repetitive clamping situations with very high frequency. The sister product ERX-CR is a chrome plated version of the push-button clamping handle, which has an especially striking ‘techno’ look, while the ERFW+I Crank handles provide an easy way to wind shafts and gauges with fingertip control.

The Ergostyle range encompasses all areas of industrial equipment, which includes machine guarding and control systems where Elesa’s EBR-PN handle with pneumatic valve offers safety machine shut-off at the point of access.

Even tube supports are catered for with Elesa’s NIL Ribbed Tube End Plugs in polyethylene black or grey to suit black steel or solid anodised aluminium tube.
