Light Clamps – the clever plastic series:
With the plastic tube connectors from the "Light Clamps" series, RK Rose+Krieger has developed a cost-effective and versatile range of tube connectors for the positive connection of tubes in the light load range. This design enables the clamping of the most various tube sections and –diameters.
Besides their attractive design and the intelligent system of reducing bushes the clamping elements are characterised especially by their resistance to chemicals. They are particularly appropriate for sensitive applications under laboratory conditions and for industrial applications as, for instance, in the beverage or packing industry.
BLOCAN® aluminium profile systems – the assembly system without machining
The industrial aluminium profile system is the result of years of application experience and is characterised by extraordinary flexibility and proven reliability.
The range includes construction profiles, functional profiles and heavy-duty profiles. The options for combination and use of the flexible BLOCAN® modular profile.
No need for drill holes ... these are held together without! Simply cut the aluminium profiles to length and assemble them!
That’s what this unique range of construction profiles was designed for. Clever connection elements free you from machines and equipment. The profiles are cut to length and assembled. And more than 100 different profile sizes and cross-sections can be easily assembled using this connection method.
Linear units are used in almost every single area of automation and machine engineering. From simple adjustments that may be seldom required, right up to highly complex, highly precise and highly dynamic multi-axis systems. Every task is different. And every task requires a technically accomplished, cost-effective solution. RK linear units – variety offers the ideal solution
The wide range of RK linear units is the result of the variety of customer applications. What used to be referred to as 'special applications' have now become readily available, attractively priced standard modules. It is therefore likely that the ideal RK linear unit for your particular application already exists.
RK Easywork – workstation systems tailored individually to your production process
Ergonomics and the optimum coordination of all workflows are key features of the height-adjustable RK Easywork workstation systems from RK Rose+Krieger. This protects the well-being of employees and increases productivity.
The requirements of a manual workstation system are numerous, especially in the area of small and medium-sized series. As well as ergonomics, an optimum combination of manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic assembly and inspection procedures represents the biggest challenge when designing a user-friendly workstation.
With the RK Easywork selection assistant, a complete assembly workstation can be configured online to meet ergonomic and task-specific requirements.
BLOCAN® construction profiles made from aluminium and the electrically driven lifting columns offer a perfect combination for the creation of high-quality table concepts.
RK tube connectors – the flexible alternative to welded connections
The clampable tube connectors from RK Rose+Krieger are a cost-efficient solution for the positive and ready detachable connection of a diverse variety of systems – without the need for drilling and welding. Depending on the field of application and the expected load, RK Rose+Krieger offers tube connectors made of plastic (Light Clamps), aluminium (Solid Clamps) or stainless steel (Robust Clamps). The Solid Clamps tube connector system also includes the RK monitor mounting for the fixation and ergonomic adjustment of monitors and touch screens used in industrial applications.
Say goodbye to welding – that could be the motto of the clampable RK tube connectors
The simple assembly technology of the clamping elements eliminates the need for time-consuming and cost-intensive drilling and welding work.
RK tube connector – unbeatable variety
Thanks to their simple clamping principle, the aluminium tube connectors enable the fast assembly of both round and square precision tubes. The huge diversity of this system is what makes it an attractive and cost-effective alternative to conventional welded connections. Our application expertise and the experience we have gained over several decades as a manufacturer of clamp connectors give you security for individual handling of RK tube connection systems.
Connecting tubes with different diameters and cross sections to one another
The cast aluminium or extruded aluminium tube connectors impress with good mechanical properties, a wide range of variants and optimum value for money. The Solid Clamps product range currently comprises clamp connectors with a diameter of 8-80 mm for round tubes and of 20-80 mm for square tubes. More than 170 basic types in over 400 different variations are available.
A flexible and cost-effective way of connecting tubes to each other reliably and stably.
RK Rose+Krieger developed the precision-cast stainless steel tube connectors specially for heavy loads and impact-resistance. The high-strength tube connectors are resistant to high temperatures and corrosion, and are engineered for dynamic loads. An electrochemical passivation – the tube connectors are electropolished in a final working step – makes them more resilient and resistant to acids than elements made of untreated stainless steel. As a result they are particularly resistant to cleaning with aggressive cleaning agents or hot water from high-pressure cleaners, and ideally suitable for use in packaging machines or for feeding technology in plants in the chemicals industry.
Stainless steel clamp connectors are tough.
Stainless steel clamps are particularly important for users working in the fields of chemical and food technology.
Four new models for even more flexibility
The product family of aluminium Solid Clamp tube connectors has a new addition: size 30 base clamps, sleeve clamps and hinge clamps are now also available for delivery with integrated ball joint. A sleeve clamp with double ball also adds to the range. The ball joints are designed for loads of up to 40 Nm (static). Connected applications can be pivoted freely by 60° and rotated freely by 360°. This way, the new tube connectors with ball joint provide a significantly higher degree of freedom for construction than conventional hinged connectors. An appropriate surface coating on the ball joint makes for a high-strength clamping connection. The clamps feature a universal connecting plate for flexible integration.

Monitor swivel arms for ergonomic workstation design
The monitor mountings from RK Rose+Krieger allow for an optimal view of the monitor or a control panel. The range of action can be increased even further by using a swivel arm. This may be useful for carrying out set-up work on machinery for example, or if the monitor is having a disruptive impact on the working environment.
There is also the option of expanding the support arm with two support tubes (twin version) to include a sturdy keyboard tray.
The modular design of the RK swivel arm/support arm system allows for varied combination options and helps to adapt workstations to the most ergonomic arrangement.
Different support arms, swivel arms and telescopic support arms are available, based on the load to be supported (monitor weight, torque support). The basic version has one support tube for loads of up to 10 kg , and the twin version has two support tubes for loads of up to 25 kg.
Height adjustable monitor support arms – easy manual height adjustment and positioning
The twin and telescopic support arms are now both available in a height adjustable version.
Mounted on a vertical holder, the support arms can be manually adjusted over a range of 400 mm. By simply pulling out and holding the fixing bolt, the support arm can be freely moved to the required height. On release, the fixing bolt then locks the support arm in the selected position. The height adjustment feature is particularly useful for ergonomic workstations.
