What is Stronguard?

Swivellink® continues to add quality innovative products, and the Stronguard® product line is another example of this. Stronguard® is an industrial guarding line built to solve two needs in automation and manufacturing:

Modularity – The design allows product to be stocked on the shelf and assembled in minutes. No more waiting for custom guarding!

Strength – Stronguard® was designed and manufactured with durability, longevity, and strength in mind. No more cheap guarding in your plant!

Stronguard® is some of the best guarding on the market. If you’re looking for strength, modularity, and easy to assemble, there is nothing quite like Stronguard®. This design has been used for several years and we’re excited to share it with you.

The first time I saw Swivellink on a machine I thought “Wow! That’s just what I’ve been looking for!”
Now, I get a kick out of it. Every time I show it to one my customers I get either “Where did you get that?!” or “That’s EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for!”

The Swivellink mounting system makes mounting Machine Vision cameras and Lighting simple. The adaptability and articulation of the product allows us to mount Cameras and lights in areas where a custom bracket would take hours to manufacture and still not have the same flexibility for positioning. Once the brackets are locked down, they are very ridged and will not drift due to vibration on a machine. In addition, with all of the available adapter plates that are offered, there are other applications we use this product outside Machine vision to mount sensors and Magnetic Clamps.

I have used Swivellink for several different applications. It really solves problems, especially if needing to mount something at an odd angle.  It is very fast to implement, just select the parts and go, no design required, no taking time to machine something!  Cost savings too compared to design and fab.

What is Swivellink®

The Swivellink® product was originally designed to provide an ergonomic and robust way to put operator start buttons onto custom built industrial machinery. The goal was to protect the expensive button and route the quick disconnect cable internally, because a simple wire break or damaged button can cause hours of costly production down time. We then added our camera adaptor plate to utilize the mounting flexibility to position cameras and lighting to get the best images possible. From there, we developed our sensor mounts for a quick and easy way to add part present sensors.

As vision systems became smaller and lighter it was clear that Swivellink® had to shrink to fit the needs. That is when we developed the XS series. This brought about a much smaller form factor while maintaining the rigidity required for a solid machine vision system. Our kits take all the guesswork out of selecting the various parts needed to fit the application. With vision systems, monitor mounting became a natural addition. Our latest designs include applications for use with robot end of arm tools and are an exciting addition to the product family.

Now distributed worldwide, the Swivellink® product line has been used for hundreds of different applications in all types of industries. Used for vision systems, cycle start buttons, sensors, lights, monitors, part fixtures, tool holsters, and robot applications. The possibilities are endless for your mounting solution.



Swivellink® is a registered trademark product designed and manufactured 
by APT Manufacturing Solutions. It is sold through Authorized Distributors—
