GN 6336.10 Hand Knobs with Stainless Steel Studs

We've added another new series of knobs to our product line: GN 6336.10 Hand Knobs with 316 Stainless Steel Studs, with Nylon Plastic or Brass Tip, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS complaint components are designed to function well when corrosion is to be avoided, such as in medical, food, and cleanroom applications. The knob is matte black, glass filled nylon plastic, and the threaded stud is European standard 1.4567 (American standard 316 series) stainless steel, molded-in. The stud features either a brass or plastic (Polyacetal POM) tip, which prevents indentations or other damage from occurring. Knob diameters from 25 to 50 mm are offered, with studs ranging from M5 to M10 threads and lengths 10 to 55 mm.

You can explore our entire line of clamping knobs in Section 8 of our online catalog.

EN 239.1 and EN 239.2 Hinges with Integrated Safety Switch

Today we're sharing with you another new series of innovative products from J.W. Winco: EN 239.1 and EN 239.2 Hinges with Integrated Safety Switch, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant hinges were designed for accident prevention; the safety circuit is disrupted as soon as the door is opened. The switch is a tamper-proof, forced-opening safety switch. The function of the switch cannot be altered, because the casing is integrated and “ultra-welded” to the hinge. Hinge and switch form a single component, making installation easy, rapid and safe.

Hinges are technopolymer plastic (Polyamide PA) with a black matte finish. The hinge pin is stainless steel, European Standard No. 1.4305 (American Standard Series 303). Hinges are available with the switch on the right side (EN 239.1) or left (EN 239.2). Two types are offered for each: with countersunk screw holes (for use with DIN 7991 countersunk head screws), or with slotted holes (for use with DIN 6912 cylindrical head screws).

These hinges can also be used with aluminum profile connections. UL-approved GN 330 connecting cables are available to use in connection with the hinges.
