Whether serving transport tasks or creating mobile table frames with a height-adjustment system that doesn’t need a power source, the item new products for spring 2022 put flexibility front and center.

For example, the item Automation System has been expanded to include Linear Unit GSF 6 60 TR 12×3. Other spring highlights include Table Column Sets K for lightweight table frames with purely mechanical height adjustment and new practical functions in the item Engineeringtool.

item Linear Unit GSF 6 60 TR 12×3 offers a combination of low-friction sliding guidance and a spindle drive that features a self-locking trapezoidal thread. Thanks to integrated spindle supports, the full stroke length of up to 2800 mm can also be utilized at maximum travel speed and in continuous operation. Its duty cycle of 1000 km makes this turnkey low-maintenance system a particularly cost-effective solution for lifting tasks. A cover plate protects the interior of the aluminum support profile from dirt. As with all item products, compatibility is a top priority here, too. For example, Linear Unit GSF 6 60 TR 12×3 is compatible with accessories for Linear Unit KGT 6 60 and its Line 6 grooves ensure compatibility with the item Building Kit System. The free item MotionDesigner® online tool is available to help with the design process.

Ergonomic height adjustment without electricity

The four table columns of Table Column Sets K can be extended synchronously by up to 300 mm using a crank. The flexible, purely mechanical height adjustment system and the minimal use of materials are ideal for mobile tables and robust workstations. Solutions in custom dimensions of up to 1800 mm x 1800 mm with a load-carrying capacity of up to 120 kg can be created on this basis. Two variants are available. Table Column Set 8 80×40 K is ideal as a basis for standalone, lightweight work benches. All four of its table columns have external Line 8 grooves. Profiles 8 80×40 are used as supporting struts. When it comes to work benches that are both lightweight and strong, Table Column Set D40/D30 K, which is compatible with Profile Tube System D30, is the number one choice. In this case, Profiles D40 help to simultaneously support the table-top and encapsulate Tube D16 6 A/F. This Tube serves as a power transmission element within the frame of both variants of Table Column Sets K.

Table Column Set D40/D30 K (left) is perfect for solutions that are precisely tailored to a specific process – quite in line with the principles of lean production. The purely mechanical height adjustment works with a crank (right).

New practical functions in the item Engineeringtool

Continuous development is a top priority for the item online tools, too. New software functions are therefore a firmly established element of item new product releases. This spring, improvements have been made to the item Engineeringtool. This free software makes numerous steps faster and easier – from design to assembly. The placement preview is one of the new features. This provides a particularly clear visualization of the options for aligning products and assemblies. As a result, placing individual parts and assemblies in the correct position is even easier, and switching between variants (of Adjustable Feet and Caps, for example) is also much simpler. The function can be conveniently switched on and off under 3D settings.

Smart filters and sortable lists have always made it easier to look for suitable components in the integrated product catalogue. What’s new is an additional search function. Anyone who already knows part of the article name or the article number can use this to find the relevant product directly and add it to the construction. Since precise placement doesn’t make sense for every product, accessories can now simply be added to the parts list of the respective project. For example, individual hooks or Track Oil can be ordered at the same time as other components for the project. They will then be included separately with the delivery. One of the key strengths of the item Engineeringtool is that it automatically adds the preferred fasteners, including connection processing. However, what happens when you are in the middle of the design process and discover that a different fastener would actually be better? No problem – a new function makes it possible to switch the fastening elements automatically with three clicks.
