Systems for stepless tolerance compensation.
FLEXITOL® tolerance compensation systems were developed to compensate tolerances with economical assembly solutions and thus ensure a safe sequence in series production.

Not only in the automotive industry do production processes based on modular construction succeed.
Here, individual components are supplied to the assembler where they only have to be assembled.
To ensure flawless series production certain tolerances are assumed. The automatic tolerance compensation system FLEXITOL® provides a technically and economically optimised solution.

Your benefits:

  • Compensation of wide tolerances
  • High performance reliability
  • Access from one side only
  • Easily integrates into a variety of applications
  • High end product quality
  • Fast and easy installation

Manual and automatic tolerance compensation system

Today we have manual and automatic tolerance compensation systems. Use of one or other depends on the field of application. When positioning a component in an assembly without any auxiliaries, then manual solutions are considered most appropriate. For a component spacing predefined by a preceding step, then we would rather recommend automatic solutions.
However, manual and automatic tolerance compensation systems may also be combined.

Manual tolerance compensation:
The tolerance compensation system is screwed into the receiving parts to a defined position. During screwingin, the component tolerances can be compensated (Zero tolerance at delivery of the component).
Further alignment is possible during installation. The adjusted position is maintained when the joint is loosened.

Automatic tolerance compensation:
Two components are aligned toward each other / positioned. During screwing, the spacing between both components is automatically adjusted. The tolerance compensation system fixes the originally aligned position. If the joint is loosened, the system resumes the initial position.
