An overview of MENTOR’s control knobs and turning knobs
MENTOR's wide range of plastic and aluminium knobs offers an aesthetic and ergonomic solution for every application, from instrument knobs and potentiometer knobs to wing knobs, collet knobs, pointing knobs and toggle knobs, locking knobs, dual concentric shaft knobs and high precision turning knobs. There are many styles of knob in both black and silver, plastic and aluminium, and MENTOR's rotating knobs are available with digital and analogue controls.
MENTOR continue to introduce new knob systems that combine their opto and mechanical specialties as well as deliver millions of their traditional mechanical products in their boringly reliable and high quality manner! The image to the right – showing the control knob of Gibson's flagship guitar - demonstrates how MENTOR can combine a high quality instrument knob with their ground-breaking innovations to harness LED light.
MENTOR's Modular Systems of Plastic Turning Knobs with Collet Fixing
MENTOR offers two separate ranges of modular plastic turning knob systems. Each range consists of various diameters of knobs (between 11.8mm and 48.0 mm) and shaft sizes of 3, 4, 6, 8 & 10mm are covered. The knobs are finished in black (custom colours are possible) and can be supplied either with or without line markings. All of these knobs are standard, stocked parts (except custom-coloured knobs) and are thus available “off the shelf” with low MOQs.
Caps are ordered separately and offered in a choice of six colours. Both ranges include a comprehensive selection of accessories such as nut covers (with or without pointers), pointer dials and base plates etc. It is worth noting that certain versions of these knobs can be mounted one above the other to allow the operation of rotary switches with dual concentric shafts.
