Small quantities of series LP and MB can be installed by using a setting tool, for lager quantities we recommend our modular electro-hydraulic installation machinery "ExPress".
Expansion and anchorage of sleeve in hole wall is achieved by pressing the ball into sleeve. The MB series plug is designed for use in base materials of both low to high hardness.
The low pressure-sealing plug is installed by pressing the plug into a tapered hole. The surface hardened, but flexible plug achieves anchorage by gripping with the hole wall.
Depending on the quantities series SK, LK and HK can be installed by a simple hand lever tool or various hydraulic-pneumatic setting tools.
Pull/Expand principle. The installation tool maintains sleeve position in the hole while pulling the mandrel into, and expanding the sleeve until the mandrel breaks off at a predetermined point. Anchorage is achieved by the serrations on the outside of the sleeve anchoring into the base material, especially in soft material.
The installation is also based on the Pull/Expand principle. Thanks to the soft sleeve material, anchorage is achieved by the flow of sleeve material into the surface roughness of the drilled hole. The HK series plug is especially suitable for the use in hard materials.
This plug has been designed for applications in the low pressure range. It has an anchorage principle similar to the SK series plugs.
