Stainless Steel Linear Actuators, Left or Right Hand Thread

For our 100th post, and the last one of 2010, I'm here to tell you about our new series GN 291-NI Linear Actuators with left or right hand thread.
The metric-sized, RoHS compliant linear actuators have a guide tube made of stainless steel. The trapezoidal threaded shaft and thrust ball bearings are of stainless steel, the follower nut is steel with a gun metal finish, and the end cap is plastic. The actuators are offered in four types: single shaft end with right hand thread, single shaft end with left hand thread, two shaft ends with right hand thread, and two shaft ends with left hand thread.

Along with J.W. Winco’s extensive range of tube clamp connectors, there are a number of additional components for mounting on linear actuators to construct slide units. In order to measure the movement and position of the slides, digital as well as analog position indicators can be added. Also, the guide tube can be equipped with a longitudinal scale along the slot.

GN 285 Swivel Clamp Connector Joints

As we introduce to you our many new tube connection components, I'm here today to tell you about our series GN 285 Swivel Clamp Connector Joints.
The metric-sized, RoHS compliant connector joints are made of aluminum and available in two finishes: black powder-coated textured finish and matte shot-blasted finish (natural aluminum color). DIN 912 zinc-plated steel cap screws and DIN 985 zinc-plated steel nylon insert hex nuts are included.

GN 285 swivel clamp connector joints are an assembly of two GN 275 swivel clamp connectors. Since the swivel clamp connectors have an identical swivel width, all bores can be combined as needed. The clamping bore is machined and designed for construction tubings GN 990 or DIN 2391, DIN 2395 and DIN 2462 respectively.

In the standard version, the clamping force of the clamp onto the tube is achieved via the socket cap screws and hex nuts with nylon insert. Stainless steel screws are also available, as well as kits that include adjustable levers, spacer bushings and hex nuts for use in lieu of the cap screws.

Remember, you can see our entire line of tube connection components in Section 16 of our online catalog.
