Connnector for fast, simple frame assembly

Connnector for fast, simple frame assembly MiniTec has introduced a new frame fastener for its modular profile building system that extends the flexible building-block principle of the range and is faithful to the slogan "...saving time". The one-piece Powerlock-N fastener is simply inserted into the T-slot of one profile and, when correct alignment with the second profile is made, a quick twist of an Allen key is all that is required to make a secure connection. This intelligent and practical interconnection requires no pre-drilling or other costly preparation, offering total flexibility for new assemblies and uncomplicated scalability for existing system modification as profiles may be easily removed and located at alternative positions if required. As all MiniTec profiles share the same T-slot dimensions, just one size of of the Powerlock-N fastener and fixing tool is required, keeping system design and inventory costs to a minimum, as well as simplifying design and parts list generation. The unobtrusive fastener fits neatly inside the T-slot and allows panels and other components to be inserted in the groove whilst remaining hidden within the profile for a smart and attractive appearance. The Powerlock-N comprises a premounted M8 grub screw and a sliding nut arrangement in high quality steel for maximum corrosion resistance. All contact surfaces are finished with serrated edges to ensure maximum shifting resistance for a permanent and stable clamping. Because no pre-drilling or slot machining is required, there is no weakening of the profile and the full load rating of of 6000N for each connection is achieved with the Powerlock-N connection (or fastening) system.
