The support element is used to support additional clamping points on components.
The benefits of the support element are:
provides additional support without distortion
helps to eliminate tool vibration
supports ribs, beads and shackles to reinforce clamped components
distortion-free support of raw parts
Fix the support element (2 x M 6 thread) onto the device. Pay attention to the operator's side!
Alternative: Dismantle the M 12 x 10 threaded pin and replace it by an M 12 x 30 threaded pin and assemble the support element with a wrench (WS 21), e.g. for T-slot mounting (no defined operator's side ensured). Threaded pin M 12 x 30 and T-nut DIN 508 M 12 x 14, quality 10, are part of the standard supply volume.
Lowering of the support element by 16 mm is possible.
By turning the clamping cam (WS 6 internal hexagon) on the outer surface of the red protective sleeve, the support pin contacts the workpiece with a slight spring load.
By turning on (15 Nm) as far as possible (lock), total of 180°, the clamping mechanism locks the support pin without moving. The support element has been placed onto the workpiece and locked.
If turned in the opposite direction (unlock), the clamping is released. If turned back as far as possible, i.e. total of 180° the support pin moves to the end position.
