Creform Corporation (Greer, SC) has introduced a new series of structural metal joint sets for its unique 42 mm dia. pipe in a variety of shapes and configurations. The metal joints, designated the LJ and the LEJ series, are complete joint assemblies for connecting 42 mm pipe most commonly used to assemble Creform heavy-duty structures such as workstations, flow racks and carts. The metal joint sets are either nickel plated for anti-static applications or e-coated black for standard applications. They are available as LJ (42mm/42mm) and LEJ (42mm/28mm) joint sets. Creform standard 42mm metal joints are made of cold-rolled, 10 gage steel. Components are joined together with special high strength socket head cap screw and nuts. The joints are designed to hold the nut so only a simple hex head wrench is required for assembly or disassembly. Joint assembly is easy as no special technical skills are necessary to build a structure. The Creform System is used to create an array of material handling and efficiency enhancing devices and is a proven component in continuous improvement and Lean Manufacturing programs.
