Levelling feet machined with less material

Elesa has introduced an AISI 304 stainless steel levelling system to position industrial machinery for the assembly systems builder. Types LSQ.A-SST, LVQ.A-SST and LVQ.F-SST extend the company’s range at a favourable price/performance point, Elesa says.

The leveling feet adopt the new SMQ-SST threaded stems with adjusting square rather than the hexagon of the SM stems. The new SMQ-SST stems use less material by use of ingenious machining from round stainless steel rod in place of the previous machined down hex bar.

The range includes a ground fixing foot design, a no-slip foot with friction pad insert and a standard technopolymer foot – all using the new stem which offers as much as a 30% cost saving achieved by more efficient use of raw materials. Sizes run from 32mm to 100mm dia., dependent on style of foot selected.
