GN 853 and 853-NI Latch-Type Toggle Clamps

We're here today to introduce our new series GN 853 (steel) and GN 853-NI (stainless steel) Latch-Type Toggle Clamps with Locking Mechanism, in metric sizes.

These RoHS-compliant latch clamps feature a locking mechanism which prevents the inadvertent or vibration-induced opening of the clamp. Another benefit of this design is the ability to operate the clamp with one hand. Two versions are offered: one without a tie-rod or latch bracket, allowing the easy and individual configuration of the locking mechanism, and one with a tie-rod and latch bracket.

The base, clamping lever and catch of the steel version are sheet metal, toughened steel C10 (European Standard No. 1.0301), while the tie-rod is steel St. 32, blackened. In the stainless steel version, the base, clamping lever, catch and tie-rod are European Standard No. 1.4301 (American Standard Series 304) stainless steel. The handle sleeve is oil-resistant red solid molded plastic. All moving parts are lubricated with special grease.

GN 612.8 Cam Action Indexing Plungers

Here's the word on the latest featured new product from J.W. Winco:  GN 612.8 Cam Action Indexing Plungers in metric sizes.

These zinc die-cast indexing plungers are economically priced, and feature a special ZNDG-Pass nano® coating that offers excellent corrosion resistance. They are RoHS compliant. The lever arm is technopolymer plastic (Polyamid PA), matte black, not removable, and the plunger pin is zinc plated, blue passivated steel.

GN 618.2 cam action indexing plungers are used in applications when the pin must not always protrude. By rotating the lever arm through 180° the locking pin withdraws itself. The notch allows safe positioning.
