PVC Pipe Clamps
ServoCity has recently released two new PVC pipe clamps to expand their line of Actobotics™
mechanical components. The standardized outside
diameter of 1" PVC pipe means that you can go to any
hardware store and pick up the length you need with
assurance that it will fit into the new pipe clamps. The
low cost of PVC pipe allows you to expand the overall
size of your project quickly while adding very little cost.
The PVC clamp mount (#585524) slides over the PVC
pipe and clamps with a single pinch bolt. The 6-32
tapped holes align with the side of the 1.5" Actobotics
hub pattern which come in perpendicular to the PVC
pipe. The PVC Clamp Hub B (#545512) is an inline
clamp that fastens tightly to the PVC pipe using two
pinch bolts. The end of the PVC clamp hub B has four
6-32 tapped holes in the 1.5" Actobotics hub pattern.
Both of the new PVC clamps are machined from
6061-T6 aluminum. Prices start at $6.99.
XL Belt Mount
Also available from ServoCity is their new XL Belt Mount o use with their line of XL series timing belts to create
a precise drive system. The XL belt mount is constructed of
316 stainless steel and possesses both tapped holes and
thru-holes that match up with the .770" Actobotics hub
pattern. The belt mount has a 3/8" wide machined groove
that properly aligns and tightly holds an XL series timing
belt. This mount can be used with a continuous belt circle
to fasten a dolly to the belt in a conveyer setup, or it can
be used to attach two ends of an open-ended belt. The
open cutout in the center of the belt mount allows the
ends of an open-ended timing belt to protrude through
the middle, which allows the user to adjust belt tension
with ease. Price is $3.99.
