GN 751-AL Aluminum Fork Heads (Yokes) with Shaft Safety Retaining Clip

Today we're sharing with you about our new GN 751-AL Aluminum Fork Heads (Yokes) with Shaft Safety Retaining Clip, available in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant fork heads are mainly used with pneumatic or hydraulic cylinders, and consist of a fork head with KL-shaft safety or SL-shaft safety retaining clip. Type KL is a “single” shaft safety retaining clip; only one side secures the pin in place (therefore if bumped in the wrong way, may slip out of place). Type SL is a “double” shaft safety retaining clip; both sides are raised to secure the pin from both directions. To remove this retaining clip you must pull up on the spring sheet metal.

Fork body and pin are anodized, black aluminum. The fork pin shaft safety retaining clip is spring steel, hardened and tempered, zinc-plated and blue passivated. Due to the anodized coating of the fork head and pin, this component is virtually non-wearing.

GN 351 Vibration Isolation Mounts, Cylindrical Type

Today we're introducing to you our new GN 351 Vibration Isolation Mounts, Cylindrical Type, available in metric sizes.

The RoHS compliant components, also known as vibration mounts, anti-vibration mounts, vibration bobbins or rubber bumpers, are suitable for the elastic mounting of machine units such as motors, compressors and pumps. They are simple and economical construction elements. Their resilience and their broad range of different sizes and dimensions allow these mounts to be used in many applications that require vibration isolation.

These mounts are available in three types: with two tapped holes, with one tapped hole and one threaded stud, or with two threaded studs.

The mount body is made of natural rubber (NR), vulcanized, 55 durometer with a shore hardness of +/-5°). The cover plate is made of steel, zinc plated, blue passivated, molded in, as are the tapped inserts or threaded studs. Inch size tapped and stud versions available upon request. Specials, with certain minimum quantities, are also available. 40 and 70 druometer natural rubber material available upon request.

WN 648 Self-Lubricating Rod End Bearings

Our latest new product introduction is WN 648 Self-Lubricating Rod End Bearings, offered in inch sizes.

Rod ends are used in controlling and linking mechanisms in all types of machines. These RoHS-compliant rod end bearings are suitable for high load, low speed applications with hanging angles, requiring linear, rotational or oscillatory motions. They are offered in both tapped and threaded stem versions.

The rod end bearings are made of zinc-plated low carbon steel, with right or left hand threads. Ball socket is low carbon, zinc-plated steel, case hardened. The external ring is made of a special oil impregnated bronze material which makes these rod ends self-lubricating, maintenance-free, and guaranteed lowest friction. In addition, these joints have less increase of clearance after longer operating hours than rod ends with PTFE-surface outer races, and therefore higher life expectancy.
