GN 927.7 All Stainless Steel Clamping Levers with Eccentrical Cam, with Threaded Stud

Today we're introducing our new GN 927.7 All Stainless Steel Clamping Levers with Eccentrical Cam, with Threaded Stud, in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant levers are used for rapid clamping and releasing operations. In contrast to a clamping operation utilizing only threads and a lateral force, these levers permit torque-free clamping via a combined downward vertical and cam actuated motion. The lever has been designed to insure that its movement cannot exceed the maximum clamping position. There are no loose components since all are assembled and mounted in their correct order.

Lever and components are all stainless steel. Type A features an adjustable contact plate with setting nut. Type B has a fixed contact plate. Advantage of the adjustable contact plate is that the distance between the eccentrical cam and the contact surface is adjustable by means of a fine threaded knurled nut. This permits the maximum clamping force to be set by a simple adjustment. In addition this also permits the selection of a preferred lever position in relation to the clamping lever pin.

With these clamping levers, thrust forces of up to 8 kN (1800 lbf) can be obtained. The shape of the clamping screws/nuts prevents the formation of moisture build-up. The Type B version also seals the mounting hardware bore holes and threads. The material and design of these clamping levers make them ideal for hygienic applications. A tapped version is also available.

GN 854 Latch Clamps with Trigger Function

Here's another innovative new product we recently introduced: GN 854 Latch Clamps with Trigger Function, available in metric sizes.

The outstanding feature of these RoHS-compliant latch clamps is their highly robust, sturdy and compact design, permitting their use under demanding conditions, e.g. exposure to high temperatures, dust, spray mist, etc. The specially designed catch allows the forced loosening of the clamp, by the clamping arm moving the pulling latch forward, e.g. for separating mold halves.

Clamping bearing/clamping arm are made of forged, weldable, blank steel. Pulling latch/bearing pins are steel, St 37, blank, and catch is sheet metal steel, blank. The clamps are available with bore for gear lever handle or with clamping arm. The former version is operated with a gear lever handle which is plugged into the latch and pulled off after operation. This saves space and has the added advantage that the gear lever handle is not exposed to adverse ambient conditions, e.g. becoming too hot to operate.

The catch can also be mounted using screws or bolts. If required, clamps and catches are also available as separate parts; for replacement, the bearing bolt is easily dismantled.

GN 7403 Aluminum Breather Strainers with Stainless Steel Mesh

Today we're introducing GN 7403 Aluminum Breather Strainers with Stainless Steel Mesh, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant breather strainers are used in enclosure and device construction. Mounted into the wall of the enclosure, they ensure pressure equilibrium between the inside of the enclosure and the outside. The outside diameter of the enclosure with the recessed hexagon matches the bolt mounting holes for DIN 3852 threaded pipe connectors.

Any dirt and dust particles carried by a particular medium (such as air or a gaseous substance) are prevented from exiting. This protects the insides of sensitive devices and machinery parts from dirt and pollution and also protects the environment from any exiting dust. Sealing ring is embedded in a radial and plane-sided recess which makes the seal captive, and prevents it from being squeezed out during tightening.

Strainer body is aluminum, with stainless steel mesh of 100 or 500 ┬Ám. Strainer bezel is glass fiber reinforced plastic (Polyamide PA), with seal of NBR synthetic rubber (Perbunan). Versions with both metric and BSPP parallel threads are available.

GN 132.5 Stainless Steel Two-Way Connector Clamps

Today we'd like to tell you about our new GN 132.5 Stainless Steel Two-Way Connector Clamps, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant connector clamps have clamping bores machined and designed for GN 990 construction tubings or DIN 2391, DIN 2395, and DIN 2462 respectively. Clamps are made of stainless steel, with clamping bores machined. Carriage bolts are DIN 603, A2 stainless steel; cap nuts are DIN 917, A2 stainless steel. Type A features sealing, while Type has plastic washers (Polyacetal POM) and edge ring of Silicon, 40-60 Shore A.

The shape of the clamping screws/nuts prevents the formation of moisture build-up. The Type B version also seals bore holes and threads. The material and design of these connector clamps make them ideal for hygienic applications.

GN 252.5 Stainless Steel Threaded Plugs

Here's another new product we've recently added to our immense line of standard machine components: GN 252.5 Stainless Steel Threaded Plugs, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant threaded plugs can be used as spring retention units or as plugs to keep debris from entering into critical threaded areas. The PRB thread coating (polyamide allround coating) acts as a clamping lock, preventing the locking screw from inadvertently being loosened and becoming detached.

Plugs are made of stainless steel, European Standard No. 1.4305 (American Standard Series 303). They are available with or without thread coating (polyamide overall thread coating). Thread sizes range from M12 to M27.

GN 1130 Steel Lifting Pins

Today we'd like to tell you about our new GN 1130 Steel Lifting Pins, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant lifting pins are carrier elements designed for fast and easy use. Pressing the red aluminum button will release the locking effect of the locking balls, allowing the load pin to be moved in or out of the holding bore hole. The shackle rotates by at least 180°, with a safety flange fitted as a safeguard against inadvertent operation. Depending on the direction of pull, the ball load pin may move freely by 360° in the holding bore hole.

These lifting pins alleviate the need to have lifting gear (e.g. load rings) permanently with the workpiece. Holding bore holes with d1 H11 tolerance are adequate for use.

Stud and shackle are made of heat-treated, manganese phosphated steel. Push button is red anodized aluminum. Spring is made of stainless steel. Lifting pins can support nominal loads from 1.5 to 4.8 kN.
