Sleeves are used to create or bridge a distance between two parts. In its basic form, a sleeve is a tube-shaped component. Sleeves are also often referred to as spacers, spacing rings, spacer tubes, bushes or distance rings. This simple part is required in practically every sector of industry because it can be customised and is economical to manufacture. One major advantage is the considerable reduction in installation time.
Options – customisation
Wherever technically feasible, the external diameter, internal diameter, length and material can be combined almost without restrictions. To make this part more suitable for any given application, it is possible to apply a collar (sleeve with collar) or a thread (sleeve with thread). If it is necessary to combine the two options then we speak of a threaded sleeve with collar.
Configurator for custom sleeves
To configure the product and then calculate the price and delivery time, you can easily upload a STEP 3D-CAD model by means of drag and drop. The innovative online tool provides maximum transparency and gives you reliable real-time information.
Manufacturing feasibility, supply capability and price are determined and are available to you with no loss of time. If you want, you can also order the part directly.
Installation could not be easier. The sleeve is simply pushed into place. This reduces assembly times and the required spacing is always the same.
Areas of application
Sleeves are used both in industry and in various trades. Whether indoors or outdoors, they reliably fulfil their function of creating a uniform spacing.
