Berna© MultiClamps components
(pour le français, SVP cliquer sur le symbole FR situé en haut à droite)
The components of a Berna MultiClamp© are: an axis - a 1/8" diameter high density carbon fibers rod - equipped at each of its ends with a silicone stop - and 2 polycarbonate jaws that can slide on the axis. At its opposite end to the passage hole of the axis, the jaw is provided with a very springy silicone buffer, for contacting the objects. The Berna MultiClamp© 1 has a 3" long axis and its jaw depth is 3" long. The Berna MultiClamp© 2 has a 8" long axis. Its jaw depth is 3" long too. The Berna MultiClamp©3 has a 10" long axis. Its jaw depth is 3" long too. High density carbon fibers rods of which are made MultiClamp axis are so hard that they are marked by the steel screws of the chocolate blocks. So such rods might be secured end to end by using units of chocolate blocks. That enables to extend the axis of the different kinds of Multiclamps and to get longer spans.
