New MBR diamond cut knurled control knobs are available with a collar or flange with laser-engraved precision graduations or a triangular index. Marks help to visually identify the current position of the instrument’s body.
Control knobs are designed for adjustment or precise alignment of machine parts and precision instruments, necessitating a firm grip. The fine pitch knurling on the rim of the knob improves the grip by providing more comfort for the operator’s hand during rapid rotations — no awkward angles for the hand and wrist — and greater sensitivity for fine adjustments. MBR control knobs are also available with a rear compartment for potentiometer housing.
Compact shape and modern design together with a colored center cap, available in the seven ELECOLORS — Pure Orange, Light Grey, Colza Yellow, Flame Red, Pastel Blue, Jet Black and the newly introduced May Green — allow for aesthetic compatibility with the machine they are intended for. Additionally, the possibility of having different color options can help in identifying different machine functions, improving safety.
In addition to the wide standard offering (combinations of dimensions, collar, flange and colored caps), MBR control knobs can be customized with caps in other colors, graphic symbols, marks or text and with a flange with special graduations.
