Cross linear unit connectors KM.Z of die-cast aluminum have split clamping points and guide element bores that have been partially machined by cutting methods. The bores are offset in the plane and arranged at an angle
Together with the guide tube of the linear unit, the guide element bores form a solid linear round or square guide mechanism that can be adjusted and clamped for low play. Centering bushes in the pass-through bores eliminate axial play. Drive keys transmit the linear movement of the linear unit to the linear unit connector.
Depending on the design, the part to be moved is fastened to the guide element or the guide element itself is installed at the place of use such that the entire linear unit moves together. At the screw points, hex socket cap screws or adjustable hand levers reduce the guide element bore or clamping point size.
Adjustable hand levers are intended for repeated, tool-free clamping. Under the designation HSK, these are available separately for individual use and in other designs. Compared with the tool-operated hex socket cap screw, the clamping force achievable with an adjustable hand lever is lower due to the shorter lever length.
