FIXAX is a mechanism designed to bridge tolerances automatically using a self adjusting mechanism. FIXAX is positioned between the two components that are to be connected and is held in place by the plastic ring. The components are aligned in axial direction to the screw connection.
A connecting bolt is inserted into the hole of the first component and through the FIXAX tolerance adjuster to the thread of the second component.
When the screw is tightened, FIXAX generates friction engagement between the connecting bolt and FIXAX, extending itself in a self-adjusting manner, thus reducing the space between the two components until the surfaces meet. Any tolerances are therefore completely eliminated. The connecting bolt is then tightened with no component deformation.
FIXAX can only be extended as far as the existing distance between the two components or as far as its maximum extension length. The system has been designed to prevent the parts from separating, thus allowing a production process with oscillating conveyor systems. The size and the adjustment range of the FIXAX can be designed to correspond to customer requirements.
