Clevises are some of the most frequently used linking elements in industry. These parts can be found everywhere where simple movements are required, e.g. linear pulling, pushing or even axle offset compensation.
In addition to standard clevises, there are also clevises with male threads. These can be used wherever only female threads are available for fixing. This product, so simple in appearance, also has a particular advantage. These clevises, which can for instance be screwed to hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders, do not need, apart from a locking nut, additional mounting security such as threaded rods or adhesive.
In addition, clevises with elongated holes are available. An elongated hole is provided instead of a cross hole. If adjusting options are required in the area of the cross hole, this clevis type can be used instead.
If the clevis is subject to particularly strong alternating tensile and compressive forces, the cross hole can deform, drastically shortening the service life. To prevent this, mbo offers a clevis with a hardened cross hole. A specially developed hardening procedure increases the service life of the product several times. Rapid deformation of the cross hole is prevented.
