Steel and Stainless Steel Vertical Acting Toggle Clamps, Safety Hook and Vertical Mounting Base Available from JW Winco

JW Winco, Inc., A Ganter Company, a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, now has available GN 810.4 Steel and Stainless Steel Vertical Acting Toggle Clamps, Safety Hook and Vertical Mounting Base.

These vertical acting toggle clamps have two locking features in both the closed and open positions. In addition, they have a safety function whereby, during closing, a spring-loaded safety hook latch ensures a secure locking connection. “This feature prevents the inadvertent unlocking of the clamp due to vibrations or an accidental attempt of loosening or opening the clamp,” said John Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “Used not only on jigs and fixtures to hold raw material for machining, these toggle clamps are great for applications requiring any type of hold down, such as lids, flaps, and quick-change components.”

In the clamped position, the operating lever is in its vertical position. To open and release the clamp, which is a one hand operation, the user presses the main operating handle and the grip of the safety hook latch together to disengage the latch mechanism. “The clamps work according to the toggle principle, as the lever and clamping bar move in the same direction,” Winkler said.

In the steel version, the toggle clamp is made of case hardened steel with a zinc plated, blue passivated finish. The bearing pins are tempered while the bearing rivets are case hardened. The stainless steel version is manufactured from European Standard No. 1.4301 (AISI 304) material. The hand grips are made from a high quality, oil resistant red plastic, and all moving parts are lubricated with a special grease.

JW Winco Now Offers Gripping Trays – for a Streamlined Grip

Elegantly covered or visibly bolted, available in a variety of surfaces and colors: The gripping trays GN 7330 and GN 7332 are new additions to the extensive standard parts selection of JW Winco.

Gripping-Trays-GN-7332-GN-7330JW Winco, Inc., A Ganter Company, a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, now offers GN 7332 & GN 7330 Gripping Trays with front or back mounting options.

In contrast to typical handles, gripping trays offer the advantage that they are flush to the surface, making them appropriate for applications that require saving space. Typically used in the packaging, medical, printing, woodworking, transportation, and material handling industries, the gripping trays are used for the pulling or lifting of cabinet doors, door hatches, and entry doors. “The gripping trays can be mounted either from the front / operator’s side with countersunk screws or from the back with threaded studs,” said John Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “In addition, both gripping trays are available with or without sealing.”

With the sealed front mounting versions, countersunk sealing screws together with the sealed back side of the gripping tray, prevents the entry of fluids or dust getting into the housing interior where the tray is being mounted to.

The GN 7330 gripping trays are made of die-cast zinc and supplied with a powder coating in either black or silver. Coating in a different color is available upon request.

The GN 7332 stainless steel gripping trays are made of high-quality deep-drawn, rust-free stainless steel with the surface blasted to a fine matte finish.

On each of the versions, the threaded studs used to mount the tray from the back are not visible from the front.

JW Winco Offers Stainless Steel Folding Handles

JW Winco, Inc., A Ganter Company, a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, now has available GN 425.9 Folding Handles in Stainless Steel.

GN-425.9-Folding-Handles-in-Stainless-SteelThe GN 425.9 stainless steel folding handles are used for lifting and pulling where the handle must only protrude a short distance in the resting position. “Two versions of the folding handles are available for side lifting, as they have a 90° limit stop,” said John Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “If the application requires lifting from above, there are two other options where the handle can lift up and fold freely 180°.”

The retaining springs keep the handle in any position. “This keeps the handle in a position that can be easily accessed and prevents noise as a result of vibration in the resting position,” Winkler said. “The handle and the retaining springs are secured by mounting the handle base to the surface either from the front, back, or welding it in place.”

Designed for use in the packaging, equipment case manufacturing, material handling, and transportation industries, the finish is either matte, shot-blasted or powder coated in black with a textured finish. The folding handle has a matte, shot-blasted finish.

JW Winco, Inc., A Ganter Company, a leading supplier of standard industrial machine components, now has available GN 360 Steel & Stainless Steel Leveling Sets.
GN-360-Steel-Stainless-Steel-Leveling-Sets
The GN 360 Leveling Sets, appropriate for the work-holding and machine building industries, are used for leveling, supporting, and holding, as well as to compensate for any slope when setting up machines and systems. “A sloped or uneven floor can be a challenge when it is necessary to precisely align a machine,” said John Winkler, CEO, Office of the President at JW Winco. “The new GN 360 leveling sets offer a solution even for the heaviest of equipment.”

The leveling sets incorporate height flexibility via a threaded spindle and they have a compensating base that is permanently attached. The base is articulated and can swivel up to three degrees in any direction from the upright horizontal position. The load capacity of the leveling sets range from seven to 22.5 tons, depending on the size.

“The thread inside the head of the threaded spindle can be used to mount the leveling set from the top and can also be used as a threaded through-hole for attachment to its mating surface from below,” Winkler said. “The fine pitch thread of the spindle allows for precise adjustment and readjustment using a DIN 1810 hook wrench, while a circlip limits the maximum path of adjustment.”
