A new range of lead-free brass cable glands is being introduced by LAPP to help ensure manufacturers, machine builders and production automation engineers and operators achieve compliance with current and forthcoming global sustainability requirements.
LAPP Australia general manager Simon Pullinger said the company is the first to offer a lead-free version, pre-empting restrictions on lead use.
Initially, the most popular LAPP cable glands will be available in the new lead-free version, including SKINTOP MS-M and MS-SC-M models, and the counter nut SKINDICHT SM-M SKINTOP MS-M, which is used in a wide range of applications in machine and plant construction, measurement, control and regulation technology, and where there are tough demands in terms of mechanical and chemical stability.
“It offers optimum strain relief, wide clamping ranges, numerous approvals and a high protection class,” Pullinger said.
Further product groups will be gradually supplemented with lead-free versions.
