Manage and protect electrical wires, pipes, and hoses
Our wide range of cable and tube fasteners keep cables, wires, and hoses away from moving parts and panel edges, for increased quality and lower noise. Our cable and tube fasteners can accommodate various wire diameters and panel thicknesses. And, for better retention, our plastic components can be combined with spring steel clips. Our metal clips are also suitable for harsh, high-temperature environments like piping inside boilers or water heaters.
Universal cable clips can be used for a wide range of wiring diameters, from 3-16 mm or 17-24 mm. The push-and-click locking system eases assembly. And, when used with our metal panel edge adapter at a 0° or 90° angle, the anchor point for running wiring through various types of industrial products and equipment (boilers, HVAC, small and large household appliances, etc.) can be translocated for greater flexibility on the assembly line.
Protect hoses during transportation
During transportation and delivery, the drain hoses on the backs of appliances like dishwashers and washing machines can be easily damaged. Our edge-mounted tube holder attaches to the frame of the appliance, securing the hose in place during transportation. During delivery, the installer simply snaps the hose out of the tube holder to hook it up.
Quick panel assembly for a perfect finish
Panel clips are ideal for assembling panels and trim. When welding and drilling are a challenge or when a perfect finish is required, ARaymond bonding solutions can be a smart alternative to mechanical fastening.
Our snap-in panel clips are one of the best ways to lower Total Cost of Ownership by eliminating laborious and costly assembly operations that require an operator to install a screw. For panel assembly situations where joints are not subjected to heavy loads, our trim clips are fast and easy to install, making them ideal for trim panels, decorative panels, and close-out panels.
The clips simply snap in to a hole in the panel. When used with compatible panel designs, assembly takes seconds and is tool-free. And, once the panels are snapped together, the fastener is hidden for an attractive, quality finish. The clips can also be blind-assembled and panel position can be adjusted. They are easy to disassemble for serviceability.
Panel edge nuts are an ideal solution for white goods and HVAC equipment made from thin sheet metal panels attached to an internal metal frame. They eliminate the need for re-work and the potential replacement of an entire panel due to sheet metal screw stripping. These self-retaining, anti-creep fasteners are designed for low push-on force for easy assembly and offer high tensile strength. A wide range of product options are available to suit your dimensions, thicknesses materials, and types of screw (metric or self-tapping).
Lower TCO, higher overall quality
According to extensive analysis by assembly cost experts the purchase cost of the fastening system accounts for just 4% of the total assembly cost. Assembly work and re-work can be ten times as much, with warranty and service calls adding an additional 50%. At ARaymond, we believe that u-nuts and expansion nuts can decrease Total Cost of Ownership and boost overall quality. The parts are also reusable, for more efficient product serviceability.
Speed grip cage nuts combine the ease-of-assembly of spring steel fasteners with the secure hold of cold-headed nuts. They snap readily into bolt receiving position at center panel locations and are self-retaining. Installation does not require any special skills or tools, and parts can be mounted at any convenient spot along the assembly line. ARaymond speed grip cage nuts come in a full range of screw sizes and accommodate panel thicknesses of 0.5-6.4mm. Commonly used on appliances and HVAC equipment, speed grip cage nuts can simplify assembly on any high-service panel application.
Bonding for an impeccable finish
Aesthetics are increasingly important in product design. Manufacturers of products like heaters, range hoods, and boilers are seeking new solutions offering invisible assembly. ARaymond bonding solutions provide panel assembly with a perfect flush finish with no holes or weld marks. Plus, assembly using bonded fasteners allows panels to be disassembled easily for enhanced serviceability.
Easy integration into your production line
Our Pick&Bond™ process is easy to implement on your production line, easy to automate, and is clean and fast. Because the adhesive cures rapidly, there is no curing stock to move or manage. An ARaymond expert team will work with you at every step of your assembly project and support you throughout the lifetime of your solution.
Overcoming your welding and drilling challenges
Our high-performance bonding solutions are a smart alternative to mechanical fastening whenever welding and drilling are not possible or when a perfect finish is required. We developed a bonding solution for one of our customers that consisted of studs bonded to the back of a radiator’s decorative front panel. The process was fully automated for flexibility and throughput and the result was both secure and aesthetically-pleasing.
Speed up control panel assembly
We developed a novel solution to mount washing machine control panels. The original solution consisted of six screws that were screwed into hollow studs. The ARaymond solution offered the same functional quality with just two snap clips. Assembly time was shortened and the operator’s work was made more ergonomically-friendly with one smooth motion. Manual installation was facilitated by a tool-free design. The product’s final appearance was enhanced with a hidden fastening solution with no visible “sink” marks.
Panel-edge grounding clips are one of ARaymond’s high-added-value solutions. The electrical grounding wire is connected to a metal part within the product without the need to drill holes, weld studs, or screw in threaded and toothed washers. Clips are pushed on to the panel and ensure the electrical connection in one movement. We also offer shaft retainers to lock studs into panels or any other part with a flat surface. The clips are then pushed onto the stud from the top and a lug connector ensures the electrical connection.
A modular, secure connection for heating and air conditioning manufacturers
We provide Quick Connectors for small and modular air conditioning units (residential and small commercial) and for heating equipment like heat pumps. Heating and air conditioning equipment manufacturers operate in a changing regulatory landscape, which affects design and assembly processes (currently dominated by brazing). ARaymond offers solutions to ensure that air conditioning manufacturers stay in compliance with regulations.
A fast, simple assembly solution to replace brazing
Brazing is a process to join two metal parts by melting and applying a filler metal in the joint. Heat pump manufacturers commonly use this process. Our Quick Connectors are a heat- and fire-free way to join two lines. The Quick Connectors simply click into place, for a fast, safe connection. The 100% plastic solution is also compatible for use with flammable fluids.
A secure, robust connection for heat pumps
All of our Quick Connectors are 100% leak tested in our factory, guaranteeing you a safe connection. Helium leak tests are performed to prevent refrigerant fluid leaks that could limit the lifetime and performance of the system and harm the environment. We provide a secure and robust connection for heat pumps with our Quick Connectors, which are designed to withstand pressure of up to 30 bars for Ø7.89 and Ø9.49 and burst pressure of 100 bars.
We also ensure that our Quick Connectors are compatible with current and future refrigerant fluids. Finally, we have obtained the relevant industry certifications (ISO 14903, for example) for our products.
Quick Connectors facilitate the maintenance of equipment, they can be dismantled in one click and can be assembled and reassembled several times. Pressure, temperature, and flow sensors can be integrated directly into the Quick Connectors, adding value to your products.
Flexible, removable solutions for air conditioning lines
We offer Quick Connectors designed specifically for air conditioning manufacturers. Our flexible solutions are easy to dismantle, saving time on the production line and during maintenance. Our Quick Connectors provide a clear confirmation that the connection is secure, and are 100% leak-proof for the lifetime of the equipment (fifteen years). Our Quick Connectors can withstand service pressure of up to 30 bars and temperatures from -30°C to 130°C.
