GN 927.7 Stainless Steel Clamping Levers with Eccentrical Cam with Stainless Steel Contact Plate

We're introducing you today to our GN 927.7 Stainless Steel Clamping Levers with Eccentrical Cam with Stainless Steel Contact Plate, Tapped Type, in inch and metric sizes.

Levers are offered in Type A with adjustable contact plate, or Type B with fixed contact plate. These RoHS-compliant clamping levers are used for rapid clamping and releasing operations. In contrast to a clamping operation utilizing only threads and a lateral force, these levers permit torque-free clamping via a combined downward vertical and cam actuated motion. The lever has been designed to insure that its movement cannot exceed the maximum clamping position. With these clamping levers, thrust forces of up to 8 kN (1800 lbf) can be obtained.

With the Type A version, the distance between the eccentrical cam and the contact surface is adjustable by means of a fine threaded knurled nut. This permits the maximum clamping force to be set by a simple adjustment. In addition this also permits the selection of a preferred lever position in relation to the clamping lever pin.

Lever and components are of AISI 303 stainless steel. Contact plate is stainless steel, Super Duplex 255 material, hardened. Type A setting nut is also made of AISI 303 stainless steel.
