  1. Cable Clamps – Adhesive Mount: The adhesive mount provides an easily applied secure fastening that can be removed.
  2. Cable Clamps – Snap In: Snap in cable clamps allow quick and secure installation onto the application. Simply apply pressure to the cable clamp while inserting it into a pre-drilled hole
  3. Cable Clamps – Screw Mount: As the name implies screw mount cable clamps are secured to the application by a machine screw. Screw mount clamps are often easier to remove but can be more time consuming to install.

Essential Hardware: PCB Card Guides

Card guides are key to the performance and reliability of most electronic devices. Card guides attach to the edges of printed circuit boards (PCBs) securely holding them in place. Since card guides are used in nearly all electronic applications they must meet the demands of many different environments. Card guides can be found in applications ranging from military communication equipment to network servers.

PCB card guides typically come in two primary mounting configurations: vertical and horizontal. Card guides are also available in many different materials, sizes and locking configurations. Other variations include card guides specifically designed for high vibration or static sensitive conditions.

Protecting & Organizing Wire Using Cable Clamps

What is a Cable Clamp?

Cable clamps play an important role in guiding, organizing, and protecting wire and cable. As the name indicates, cable clamps utilize pressure to bundle and secure cables and wires in place. Cable clamps are first fastened to a panel, often using a snap-in fastener, screw, or adhesive. Once the clamp is secure the cable is pressed into place. Depending on the clamp configuration the cable can be inserted from the top, side, or bottom of the clamp.

Reducing System Wear Using Anti-Vibration Mounts

If you’ve ever driven in an old truck you probably remember feeling like you hit every bump and divot in the road. That’s likely because the technology used to reduce motion and vibration in the truck was outdated. Vehicles today are equipped with advanced shocks and vibration mounts to reduce the amount of motion felt by drivers and passengers. These advancements in motion control aren’t just limited to commercial automobiles. In fact, motion control technology is utilized in all kinds of applications from industrial machinery to medical devices. Some of the simplest and most widely used motion control solutions are bumper feet and vibration mounts.  These devices dampen vibration using springs and dense materials like rubber.

Why Use Vibration Mounts & Bumper Feet

  1. Increased system longevity by reducing stress on components
  2. Improved usability and increased precision
  3. Cost savings over the life of the application

bisco + Essentra = Your Source for Motion Control Solutions
