The new standard fitting with 14mm installation depth
After the successful introduction of the Clamex P-15 Lamello now unveils the new Clamex P-14. This newest innovation by Lamello was optimised for all standard ap-plications and creates many new possibilities. The new fitting will be available as of September 2014.
The installation of the new fitting is based on the innova-tive P-System® groove and is a true time saver. Clamex P-14 is installed in the groove within seconds and without tools. The two integrated positioning pins avoid torsion and make any additional positioning elements like dowels superfluous. The maximum tensile strength of the fitting reaches at least 100kg. In its use the fitting offers ad-vantages like the installation depth of only 14mm, which is the same as for the Tenso P-14, eliminating the need depth 14mm is ideal for butt joints in panels 16mm thick, since there is more material left at the bottom of the groove. In mitre connections with 19mm panels, the posi-tioning of Clamex P-14 can be closer to the outer edge, clamping the joint perfectly.
Due to the lower installation depth, non-mitred angles are now possible from 22.5° to 108° in 19mm panels.
tion of the two stabilisers, which offer great dimensional stability.
The work pieces are easily stacked for transport despite pre-installed fittings. This advantage leads to minimal transport volume and efficient glueing/assembly on site. The time for preparation as well as the transport of clamps and protectors to the site can be avoided, leading to lower cost for transport and logistics and to smaller installation teams.
The applications are very versatile and reach from gen-eral woodworking and carpentry over furniture making, interior and shop fitting all the way to bathrooms and kitchens. In the factory Clamex P-14 is ideal for the as-sembly of drawers, glued cabinets and work pieces of all kinds. On site it quickly and efficiently joins separating walls, column covers, plinths and fillers, front frames or any part needing adjustment on site.
The cutting of the P-System groove for the fitting is pos-sible with modern CNC technology as well as with the hand-held power tool Zeta P2 by Lamello. Most CNC producers have programmed macros for this purpose and with some CAD/CAM developers it is possible to pass the P-System groove from the CAD directly to the CNC machine. For the new fitting Lamello improved the manual installation further by developing a new P-System drill jig.
This new drill jig is suited for all current Clamex P fittings as well as for the new Clamex P-14. The drill jig follows an open concept to cater for new future elements.
The new drill jig is longer, making it possible to now drill holes at a very small angle of 22.5°. This new drill jig is available individually or as a starter set together with the Clamex P-14.
The new products are available from September 2014.
