Matara Range of Clamping Elements

Matara’s clamping element range is designed to complement its linear rail and linear shafting products. The Matara linear rail and shaft clamping element range features manual clamping and pneumatic clamping cylinder options. These shafting types suit diameters from Ø12 to Ø60, with the linear rail units suitable for linear rails from 9 to 65.

What are manual clamping elements?

Our FRCMAN and FRCCMAN LT Series of manual clamping elements provide reliable yet straightforward manually controlled clamping. One of the key features of our manual clamping elements is an adjustable locking lever where the contact sections press with sync on the surfaces of the rail. The floating profiles of contact ensure symmetrical distribution of the force on the linear guide.

What are pneumatic clamping elements?

The Matara FRC Series and the FRCC pneumatic clamping elements for Round Bars use the air from the machine’s pneumatic system. Available in single or double-acting form, the FRC series enables the choice of how the clamps operate. This makes them suitable for a wide range of applications, including as a failsafe on vertical applications.

Which applications need clamping elements?

Linear clamping elements support a wide range of applications, whether manual clamping or pneumatic clamping elements. Some of the most common clamping element applications include:

  • Material handling
  • Printing and Packaging
  • Machinery that performs braking and holding tasks
