A novel angle on assembly

An angle locking bracket from Machine Building Systems allows machinery profiles to be fastened together at any angle in 2.5deg increments to provide incremental angular adjustment.

Brackets would typically be used in pairs on large shelves on track-side equipment and parts trolleys. They have been designed to be easy in operation for the machine assembler.

When the knurled locking screw is released, spring pressure lifts the toothed disc away from its mating half, allowing easy rotation. Re-tightening of the screw can be achieved by hand to re-engage the teeth. The unit will then resist rotative moments up to 200Nm.

The Angle Locking Brackets come complete with all the fastenings needed to secure them to item profiles and are available.
