Joint rods – Long delivery times, no customization capability, and expensive! These are the experiences that many users who are looking for joint rods have had to put up with. But now everything has changed!
What are the functional dimensions of the parts I want to connect? What is the resulting total length of the joint rod? Oh yes, and it should include a locknut as well ...
Reconciling all these and similar points is what costs you so much time and patience if you regularly have to concern yourself with joint rod configuration. This is due to the fact that these connecting pieces are individually designed for almost every separate application. And if different thread types or directions have to be used at the end of the threaded rod and a uniform thread along the full length of the rod can no longer meet your needs then the design effort is greatly increased.
Using joint rods
However, the basic task of a joint rod is always very much the same, whether it is used as a tie bar system in structural steel engineering, as a system linkage rod for construction machinery or as a turnbuckle for special vehicles:
Two elements have to be connected to one another and the required forces have to be continuously transferred. As for all moving applications, it is important that the parts are low-wearing and durable. In addition, when the product is installed, it should be possible to compensate for play by adjusting it with millimetre precision or by readjusting it as required in permanent operation.
The absolutely precise configuration of the joint rod in combination with the specific parts to be connected therefore brings about considerable advantages. For example, installation times can be reduced enormously and process costs kept low throughout the entire organisation due to simplified article management.
The configurator for your specific joint rod
Anyone is confronted by the sort of tasks we have described above can now benefit from a very helpful tool. Complete transparency and support during the design process – in real time without having to plough through books and tables. Our joint rod configurator works with you online and with no loss of time to create custom-built units, provide information about functional dimensions, indicate prices and delivery times and, if you want, also sends your order directly to our manufacturing plants – eliminating the usual friction losses that occur during conventional offer and order processing.
And of course, users of this tool also benefit from the proven online advantages compared to the conventional order process:
• Batch size 1
• Immediate information about availability and delivery times
• Product-specific price advantages
• No surcharge for small quantities
You don’t need any connecting parts, just the threaded rod itself? That’s not a problem: In this case, simply use our even more streamlined configurator for threaded rods!
Usability, intuitive operation and the integration of 50 years of experience in the field of linking technology were our guiding lights during the development of the configurator, which has been designed to make your life a little easier.
Is there any other functionality you would like to see? Then we look forward to receiving your feedback!
