GN 990-AL Construction Tubings

In the weeks and months to come, we'll be taking a closer look at many of the great new components recently added to our product line as part of our new complete line of tube connection and conveyor components.  Today we begin with
GN 990-AL Construction Tubings for tube clamp connectors.

These RoHS compliant tubings come in inch sizes in round versions, and in metric sizes in both round and square versions. They are offered in either untreated, plain finish aluminum, or clear anodized aluminum. The sawed end surfaces are untreated, but deburred.

Tolerances for the outside diameter of the round construction tubings comply with the requirements for split mono-block connector clamps. Inch tubing complies with EN 754 and EN 755. Metric tubing complies with DIN 2391, DIN 2395 and DIN 2462.

The tubings are offered in a variety of diameters. Inch sizes come in standard lengths of 12, 36, 72 and 98.4 inches, with other lengths, in 1 inch increments up to 96 inches, also available upon request. Metric sizes come in standard lengths of 300, 1000, 2000 and 3000 millimeters.

J.W. Winco also offers inch and metric sized round and square tubings in zinc-plated, blue passivated steel, as well as metric sized round and square tubings in untreated stainless steel (European Standard No. 1.4301, American Standard Series 304).

Introducing Our New Tube Connection and Conveyor Components Lines!

We are proud to announce the launch of our new comprehensive line of tube connection and conveyor components, as well as the release of our new Tube Connection and Conveyor Components Manual.

This 276-page, full color catalog features the two new product lines that we have greatly expanded, along with previously sold related products. In combination, the components included in the catalog offer complete solutions for tube and conveyor assemblies for all industries.

Our tube connection components line includes a full array of inch and metric connector clamps, tube supports, connector joints, construction tubing, swivel clamp bases, sensor holders, tube end plugs, linear actuators and connectors, digital position indicators, drive/transfer units, gear wheels and housings.

Of particular note is the new selection of “mini clamps,” designed to connect smaller diameter shafting and tubing. These elements can be used to build support structures for mounting sensors, Plexiglas guards, etc.

The conveyor components line includes cross blocks, adjusting rods, guide rail and guide rod clamps, side brackets, knobs, clamping heads, roller guides, support heads, side mount brackets, connection joints, bipods, tripods, tube expander fittings, connection joints, and flange bearings.

Lastly, presented in the Manual are a number of selected leveling elements for use in tandem with the tube connection and conveyor components. These include tube ends, and stud and tapped type leveling mounts in both metal and plastic in a variety of designs.
