One of the most commonly found products in the industrial environment and in the households is the clamping knob. There are some basic principles that have driven the invention and development of the clamping knob. If necessity is the mother of allventions, the necessity that deve the simple invention that has made things so much easier and more effective is the need to grip the knob when trying to wield it, when you turn it on or turn it off. There is so much more to products than plain usability – there is convenience, there is style, there are looks, there is satisfaction and there is the aesthetic pleasure of holding and holding a product. It is a combination of all of these factors that have led to the design and development of the clamping knob into successful prototypes that have garnered high levels of acceptance among the wider population.
The art of designing and manufacturing the clamping knob has reached new heights with advances in manufacturing technology, as in the case of the solid top knob and a host of other models that have got a name for themselves in the industry. The soft touch clamping knob is made of glass-reinforced polypropylene along with zinc plated steel stud for the metal part of it. And the other models of the clamping knob have incorporated the goodness of style and satisfaction along with sheer value out of utility, as in the case of multi-knob knobs. There are different styles of multi-lobe knobs that feature economic design for light-duty securing as well as clamping applications, along with some of the other properties such as water and solvent resistance. Multi-lobe knobs are the best options when it comes to applications that require quick hand adjustments.
The advantage when it comes to the design of the clamping knob is that it could have been made with male studs, with female inserts through hole or blind top, or without an insert at all. There are other models of the clamping knob, as in the case of the contoured 3 prong knob, which sports a matte finish, has a decorative curved body and is ideal when it comes to applications requiring large gripping areas. The other models such as the T Knob, the Grip Knob and the soft touch high profile knob that provides strength and stability are some of the examples of the clamping knob that have gained immense popularity and immediate acceptance among industrial and domestic users.
