GN 722.2 Square Spring Latches with Flange

Today we're introducing you to our GN 722.2 Square Spring Latches with Flange for Surface Mounting.

These spring latches are designed for use in applications where less precise positioning/locking is required. The dimensional tolerances are therefore chosen for cost-effective production, while insuring that functional safety is guaranteed when exposed to dirty or dusty environments. They provide high dynamic and static strength and can be loaded from any direction with approved safety (safety factor 4).

This type of spring latch is used when the indexing pin needs to be retracted. The indexing pin retracts by turning the latch up the cam slope by 180°. A lock notch will hold the latch in both positions. The flange has two holes for mounting that can accommodate metric DIN 933/931 hex cap screws or DIN 912 socket cap screws. Equivalent inch size screws may potentially also be used for mounting the latch.

The guide body is steel, precision cast, with either a zinc plated finish or black textured finish. The precision cast latch and the plunger pin are zinc plated, blue passivated steel. The spring latches are available in versions with the latch position either right-angled or parallel to the mounting holes, and are RoHS compliant.

You can see our full line of spring, ball and indexing plungers in Section 10 of our online catalog.

Price Reductions on Thumb Screws, Knurled Nuts and Spring Plungers!

J.W. Winco, Inc. is pleased to announce new lower prices on a number of our quality machine components!

New reduced prices are in place for our metric sized DIN 464 Steel Knurled Thumb Screws and DIN 464-NI Stainless Steel Knurled Thumb Screws. The steel version has a black oxide finish, while the stainless version has a sandblasted satin finish.

Both types are manufactured from solid bar stock, and are RoHS compliant. They are offered in a variety of diameters, stud lengths, and thread size options.

We have also reduced prices are on our DIN 466 Steel Knurled Nuts and DIN 466-NI Stainless Steel Knurled Nuts. Again, the steel version has a black oxide finish, while the stainless version has a sandblasted satin finish.

Both types of knurled nuts are manufactured from solid bar stock, and are RoHS compliant. They feature a tapped through hole and are offered in a variety of diameters and thread size options.

We're also offering lower prices on our GN 6303.1 Quick Release Knurled Nuts. These RoHS compliant, metric-sized nuts are used in applications where the nut has to be completely removed after the releasing operation and refitted very rapidly for re-clamping.

The nut is tilted over the threaded spindle. When in position, the nut is brought into a straight position for meshing of the two threads on nut and spindle. The nut will then have to be turned only by a fraction of a rotation to achieve clamping. Quick release nuts are made of steel with a black oxide finish, tapped through. Five different diameters/thread sizes are offered.

Lastly, we're happy to announce reduced prices as well on our inch size SPRP Stubby Hand Retractable Spring Plungers. These plungers are made of steel with a zinc-plated finish and feature a short body design ideal for applications with limited space.

SPRP plungers have a pull ring and are non lock-out type. A locking patch is available upon request. Four inch thread sizes are offered, accommodating final end pressure from 2 to 5 pounds.
