Angle joints create greater movement

Paul Boughton

Angle joints serve as linking and guiding elements for movable parts and create corner joints.

These parts from component suppliers can significantly simplify mechanical construction, be used to transfer power in offset axles, transmit movement and are indispensable in all mechanical operations such as cushioning, drawing, tilting, levering, etc. But that is not all. Housings, ball studs and Co are as various in their geometry, appearance and construction as the ideas of the designers.

There are standard parts in every possible size, construction and material composition available for most applications. mbo Osswald keeps a large number of angle joints out of his product palette of more than 12000 parts in stock.

In addition to the DIN71802 angle joints which consist of DIN71805 housings and DIN71803 ball studs, every possible variation is ready to be called up by the customer.

There is also a choice of surface protection such as, for example, blank, galvanised zinc, steel or stainless-steel versions.

For problematic environmental conditions (dust, lubricants) there are special angle joints with sealing caps available. The space between housing and ball stud is enclosed and sealed with a cap – the best protection against damage caused by environmental influences. The programme is extended with axial joints. 

mbo Osswald GmbH & Co KG is based in Kuelsheim-Steinbach, Germany.
