Description of Knobs for Engineers
What are knobs?
Knobs are mechanical components which allow efficient tightening and loosening of screws. Their best feature is that they are usable without tools.
Advantages of Using Knobs
Higher Work Efficiency Without Tools
The use of knobs increases work efficiency, since tools such as the wrenches and spanners used on screws are no longer required. Efficient in places where screws are frequently handled, such as equipment changeover.
Knob Application Examples
Position Adjustment with Frequent Mounting/Removing
Types and Features of Knobs
An abundant lineup available from standard to unique products. NBK will recommend knobs to meet your particular requirements.
Various types of knob materials are available, including steel, stainless steel, and plastic. We also offer soft-touch EPDM. ＞＞For individual material characteristics, click here Steel Stainless Steel Plastic/Rubber Other Technical Data
The two basic screw types are male and female, but the reamed-hole type is also available as standard.
