Industrial machinery is becoming increasingly complex, making serviceability a real concern for manufacturers. Fans, wires, control panels, and motors have to be easy to access for maintenance, repairs, or replacement. ARaymond offers a wide range of parts that have been designed to be assembled and disassembled easily, many times.
Managing wires and cables is an important consideration in the design of industrial machines. Wires from access doors that are frequently opened and closed must be secured without restricting movement, for example. Wires and tubes must also be protected from moving parts. ARaymond offers a wide range of routing solutions that can be mounted in a variety of configurations and that can accommodate multiple wire and tube diameters. And, with options like swivel components, watertight seals, and locking mechanisms, ARaymond has a product to meet the needs of your machine.
Rotational movement is common in industrial machines and can create challenges when it comes to fastening and assembly. ARaymond has developed a variety of products to facilitate the assembly of these types of machines.
For example, high-strength retaining rings are often used to assemble the rollers used in conveyor belt systems. ARaymond offers high-retention, easy-to-assemble retaining rings that eliminate secondary assembly steps like making a groove at the end of the stud or mounting other mechanical fasteners.
If your machine has unique needs, you can count on our experts to work with you to develop a fastening and assembly solution to increase the value and performance of your machine while facilitating assembly. For example, ARaymond developed a line of knob-to-shaft fasteners with a customer. The fasteners secure the part and support the rotational movement of the part, maintaining its lateral position during operation.
The vast majority of industrial machines feature panels. ARaymond offers an extensive catalog of panel fasteners to meet a wide variety of needs, from aesthetics to robustness—or both. From heavy duty configurations that must accommodate large screw sizes to lighter duty trim-type situations where hidden fasteners are desirable, we have a solution for your panel attachment needs. Whatever your needs may be, our solutions are always engineered to reduce assembly time and maximize floor space to add value and reduce Total Cost of Ownership.
