We're happy to introduce you today to our new GN 440.6 Stainless Steel Leveling Feet with Fixing Lug with Tapped Socket, With Plastic Base Cap or Rubber Pad, in inch and metric sizes.

These RoHS-complaint leveling feet are simple, economically priced components. The base is stainless steel with a shot-blast finish. The tapped socket is also stainless steel, and the stainless steel assembly screw is loctited into place. Versions with optional plastic base cap of black Elastomer (TPE) plastic are also available, as are optional vulcanized non-skid pads of black Nitrile Butadiene rubber.

These economically priced feet are offered in a range of base diameters with inch and metric threads. They are able to bear static loads from 8 to 16 kN (1,800-3,600 lbf).

GN 920.1 Wedge Clamps

Today we're introducing our new GN 920.1 Wedge Clamps, available in metric sizes.

Clamping with these RoHS-compliant wedge clamps is achieved via the socket head cap screw and the clamp wedge, which function by moving both jaws outward. When the screw is loosened, the clamp wedge returns to its original position via an internal return spring, which, in turn, loosens the tension.

The wedge clamp is blackened steel with wedge surfaces hardened. The socket head cap screw is DIN 7984, black oxide steel grade 10.9. Tensile strength of socket head cap screw is 1000 N/mm2. Four types are offered: with smooth clamping jaws, with serrated clamping jaws, with prism-shaped jaws, and with two mounting threads for attachment jaws.

Wedge clamps are ideal for multiple clamping operations, but can also be used for clamping individual work pieces. The long hole in the clamp wedge serves to compensate for tolerances in the work piece.
