Customer online production costs cut

25 March 2010

How often do we see greater flexibility for less cost? Emka’s new 3-point cam adapter is said to offer just that. It converts a low cost single point cam into a cam for a 3-point locking system.

This gives enclosure manufacturers a much reduced stock requirement for varying cabinet door sizes, typically leading to a 40% reduction in stock costs on this component type.

OEM/Specialist cabinet producers up to now have needed to stock both single and 3 point cams, but now need only stock the popular and low cost single point item with a small quantity of adapters. The 1000 cam adapter is a precision zinc die component suitable for the complete range of Emka 1000 ¼ turn locks where the standard single point cam is appropriate.

Fixing is a single bolt operation and may be carried out in cabinet manufacture, at installation, or as a retro-fit, by removing the cam fixing bolt and refitting, then installing the rod system to the door, thus providing two more closure points for improved sealing and security on longer doors.
