HellermannTyton Ratchet P Clamp Enables Manufacturers to Cut Operational Costs
February 2, 2016 (Milwaukee) - HellermannTyton (www.hellermann.tyton.com), announces the release of the Ratchet P Clamp, a patent-pending cable bundle and wire management solution for heavy equipment, OEM and automotive manufacturers, and solar photovoltaic system service providers. HellermannTyton is a global leader in cable management and protection products, identification systems and network connectivity solutions.
Engineered to streamline wire harness installation, Ratchet P Clamp also helps reduce maintenance costs. The one-piece PA66 nylon solid body and stamped metal mounting plate create a versatile, easy to use and durable alternative to traditional P clamps. Offered in four sizes and in multiple mounting configurations, the reusable design minimizes part inventory requirements.
Ratchet P Clamp's adjustable ratchet mechanism is operated manually, clicking as it closes to signal that it is secure. It also can be closed with a HellermannTyton EVO Series hand tool, using an optional tension tab. The clamp is released by inserting a small flat-head screwdriver between the ratchet rails and pushing down.
According to Product Manager Missy DeBord, "Ratchet P Clamp was inspired by our customers' requestsfor a lightweight cable fixing solution that will stand up to the rigors of heavy duty applications andextreme conditions. During on-site research, we learned that they often needed to route bundles side-byside,had to improvise to secure electrical runs as a final assembly step and find 'work arounds' formounting challenges in constrained spaces. Ratchet P Clamp solves for all those challenges and helpsyou work smarter." The combination of increased efficiency and reduced inventory results in loweroperational costs.
